The Department of Mathematics, along with Boise State Concurrent Enrollment, sponsored the Annual Boise State Mathematics Invitational on Saturday, Oct. 22, 2022. The invitational, a team problem-solving event designed for students in grades six through 12, exposes students to the experience of doing mathematics in college—specifically as they would at Boise State. While also used as a recruitment tool, the department designed the Boise State Mathematics Invitational to be accessible to a wide range of students, not only high-achieving and “honors” students in order to increase college enrollment generally.
“We had a great turnout and great feedback from students and parents,” Margaret Kinzel, professor and chair of the Department of Mathematics, said.
Todd Fogdall, clinical instructor for the concurrent enrollment program and iDoTeach helped organize the event.
“Congrats to Todd and all who helped make this a spectacular day for math in the Treasure Valley,” Kinzel said.
