M1948: Mass Points in Splash! 2008 (Nov. 22 - 23, 2008)
"Mass points" is an intuitive method of solving certain geometry problems, especially ones that give you a scary diagram and ask for the ratio of two lengths. Mass points is (almost) never taught in schools, perhaps because it's too much fun. So come learn it here.

M1952: Puzzles from Discrete Math in Splash! 2008 (Nov. 22 - 23, 2008)
Try your hand at some fun yet difficult mathematical puzzles. The puzzles will involve logic and combinatorics, and some will be like the ones encountered on high school math contests. Students will have the opportunity to work on the problems before the answers are given away. Mathematically advanced students below grade 10 are welcome.
