Day 20: A great day for math

Two students I taught algebra II to last year and I have started a Sunday afternoon Math Circle for faculty children. This time, we tackled the Oreo problem, trying to figure out if double stuff Oreos are actually double the stuff, and surprisingly we came away with the conclusion that they are more than double the stuff. It was awesome to see test two students take on the role of incredible teachers as they worked kids aged 5-8 through this problem.
