Nick Bennett's Portfolio
Nick was introduced to the Math Circles concept and practice by James Taylor (then a math and computer science teacher at Santa Fe Preparatory School) in 2007. A year later, Nick began assisting James in running a Math Circle that met monthly for a year or so at the Santa Fe Complex. Starting in 2015, Nick began participating in the Math Teachers' Circle of Santa Fe, co-leading the activities on occasion.
The Supercomputing Challenge began in 1990, as the New Mexico High School Supercomputing Challenge. The mission of the Supercomputing Challenge is to teach teams of elementary, middle, and high schools students how to program and use computers to analyze, model, and solve real world problems. This program runs through the school year, offering workshops, mentoring services, project evaluation, and feedback to teams of participating students.
