On Thursday, October 28, Girls Problem Solving club met in Mrs. Atkins' classroom. The girls learned about toruses and constructed some of their own.
Girls Problem Solving (GPS) work on constructing toruses during a meeting. The club is comprised of girls from all classes who are interested in math outside of regular school hours.
Nandini Shukla (12), Jay Moon (12), Susan Jiang (12) Emma Hardin (12), and Pranati Yadlapalli (12) posing with the torus they constructed. In geometry, a torus is a doughnut-shaped surface generated by a circle rotated about an axis in its plane that does not intersect the circle.
