More than 120 students from throughout the East Bay attended the Julia Robinson Mathematics Festival hosted by East Avenue Middle School in the Livermore Valley Joint Unified School District (LVJUSD) on Saturday, March 25. “We were thrilled to host this regional event and include students from around the District and the broader East Bay community,” says Helen Gladden, Principal of East Avenue Middle School.

The festival, which is a noncompetitive celebration of ideas and problems in mathematics, is named after the late Julia Robinson, a mathematics professor at U.C. Berkeley who is best known for her solution of Hilbert's Tenth Problem. Students circulated through a series of stations where they worked collaboratively with table leaders to engage in thought-provoking activities and games. “The students truly enjoyed the stimulating and engaging puzzles,” says Gladden. “Special thanks to East Avenue Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) teacher Ms. Riffaya Rajid and East Avenue GATE Parent Representative Ms. Abbie Warrick who were instrumental in bringing the festival to Livermore,” Ms. Gladden continued.
