Having more than 100 high school students excited about math sounds like an April Fool's hoax, but thanks to some creative workshops that incorporated candy, rope untangling and colored pencils, this scenario was no joke during ASU's Math Day on April 1.

The students spent the day with Arizona State University's School of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences attending free workshops and a panel discussion, as well as a screening of Navajo Math Circles , which included a Q&A with the filmmakers.
