GEMS Workshop: Exploring the fascinating world of prime numbers, Part II with Professor Adolfo Rumbos, from Pomona College.

December 8 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

- Free

TOPIC: Exploring the fascinating world of prime numbers, Part II

The study of patterns in the sequence of prime numbers has fascinated mathematicians for centuries.  Are there formulas that generate prime numbers?  Are there patterns in the distribution of prime numbers and the distribution of gaps between consecutive primes?  In this series of two workshops, beginning with the proof of the infinitude of the primes and modular arithmetic, we explore some facts about prime numbers, solve some puzzles related to primes, and survey a few of the questions that are still unsolved.

WHAT IS GEMS:

The Gateway to Exploring Mathematics program (GEMS) is a series of workshops that helps excite the interests and curiosity of young students in mathematics and science

GEMS meets once a month on a Saturday morning from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM

GEMS is designed to reach 8th, 9th and 10th grade students who have an interest in mathematics and science

Participants interact with excellent and award winning faculty, staff, students and alumni from each of the seven Claremont Colleges
