Invite the JRMF team into your classroom for a fun, safe and stress-free virtual math lesson!

We will lead your class through a math puzzle that teaches collaboration, critical thinking and problem solving.

And did we mention it's FUN and FREE?

These one-time events are for one hour and will be held on Zoom or Google Meet, and allow your students to learn play-based math. They will be led by a staff member at JRMF or a trained high school volunteer.

What are the benefits of inviting JRMF into your class?

What grades do you visit?

Our classroom visits are geared toward grades 3-8, but we are open to visiting anyone in the K-12 system.

Math activities from the Julia Robinson Mathematics Festival are “low-floor, high-ceiling,” meaning students as young as 6 and as old as 100 can find our math fun and challenging.

What types of activities will you do with the students?

We can complete one activity during a one-hour class. Teachers can choose which activity they would like out of our recommended activities on our website. We are also happy to make suggestions!

What is the cost for a classroom visit?

Classroom visits are free for Title 1 schools in the U.S!

Not part of a Title 1 school but still interested in having us visit your class? We are happy to accommodate you, but request a $250 donation to the Julia Robinson Mathematics Festival for our time.

Will I need to provide anything for the visit?

Classes should have Chromebooks (or similar tech — preferably not iPads) available for each student, as well as headphones.

We also ask all teachers to provide anonymized demographic data about their class. We request the ability to collect pre- and post-event surveys from the kids. This data helps us improve and share our outcomes with our funding partners.
