Morehead State University Math Day

Morehead State University annually offers a Math Day for high school students (MPAT) to be participants in small group competitions involving technology applications. Students actually complete laboratory activities involving mathematical computations and learn how to communicate the results appropriately. The authenticity of the group interactions in meeting the required objectives for the day makes this a type of program unlike anything else the students would be exposed to during a normal school day. There are designed contraptions and interactive displays for the students to visualize mathematical concepts.
