Mathematics Field Days
For New England High School Students
Each Fall since 1995, the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Boston University has offered area high school students and their teachers the opportunity to come to the Boston University campus for a full day of mathematical activities. Students learn about current topics in mathematics and statistics, including fractals, chaos, the Mandelbrot set and Julia sets, and much more. Since 1996, the Field Days have also been held in various locations, including Cape Cod, Hartford CT, Portland ME, and the Bay Area in California.
Unfortunately, Prof. Devaney is now retired, so these Field Days are no longer being held.
