Paul Stang explores ways of making mathematics more interesting, fun, and achievable for school and college students.  He introduces Mandala, Platonic-, Archimedic-, and Kepler-forms, Ф, ancient symbols, geometric division of the circle, √2, √3, and fractional processes to creatively and passionately teach Algebra, Geometry, and Trigonometry.

New ideas for assessment methods; which encourage growth (not testing), themes of instruction; national finance-consumerism, and recreational mathematics are also included. 

Participants should bring compass, ruler, notebook (no lines), calculator and colored pens.
