Cook up some polyhedrons by following simple recipes. Invent your own recipes, too!

Is it possible to fold a strip of paper into a shape that can be “flexed”, revealing faces than weren't visible at the start?

Use simple calculations and your intuition to estimate some unexpected quantities.

Julia Robinson Mathematics Festivals (JRMF) inspire students to explore the richness and beauty of mathematics through activities that encourage collaborative, creative problem-solving.

JRMF's vision is to inspire a life-long curiosity for mathematics by instilling a genuine interest in creative problem-solving from an early age. The Julia Robinson Mathematics Festivals allow young people to develop their talent for mathematics by providing problems, puzzles, and activities that are intriguing and accessible.

Use specially shaped blocks to “stomp out” dots on a grid of squares. But if you stomp on a square without a dot, a new one appears! Can you stomp out all the dots?

How long can you keep a simple subtraction process going, before running out of interesting differences?

Can you see the light? That is, can you see the patterns in light bulbs that are left on, after repeatedly following a simple rule to switch them on and off?
