LFSF participe au Congres MATh.en.JEANS à Montreal
du 30 mars au 1er avril, 2017

Les élèves de l'atelier de recherche mathématiques du Lycée Français de San Francisco travaillent depuis le mois d'octobre sur 12 problèmes posés par des chercheurs canadiens et français.

Ces problèmes sont accessibles à partir du collège et ont amené nos élèves à développer des notions nouvelles qu'ils découvriront dans plusieurs années pour certains (dénombrement, raisonnement par récurrence, algorithmique récursive, modélisation géométrique, structures algébriques, structures cycliques).

Ces quinze élèves, de la troisième à la terminale, encadrés de leurs deux professeurs, ont travaillé une fois par semaine, avec assiduité, sur leur heure de déjeuner! Ils s'apprêtent à partir à Montréal à la fin du mois de mars pour participer à un Congrès de mathématiques, MATH.en.JEANS. Ils y présenteront leurs recherches à l'ensemble des autres participants à ce projet, c'est-à-dire les élèves des lycées de Chicago, New-York, Ottawa ainsi que les deux lycées de Montréal.

Notre équipe de 15 chercheurs en herbes feront une présentation devant une audience de 170 personnes (élèves, chercheurs, doctorants, professeurs) au sein de l'université de Montréal, durant 4 jours durant lesquels se succèderont des conférences de chercheurs, des spectacle de Mathémagie et des visite de la ville de Montréal. Ils seront hébergés en auberge de jeunesse puis dans les familles du collège Stanislas afin d'y nouer des liens avec des jeunes Montréalais de leur âge.

C'est la première fois que LFSF participera à ce grand projet qui a deux ans d'existence en Amérique du Nord. Le Lycée a grandement participé à rendre ce voyage accessible financièrement à ces élèves. Nous espérons que le succès de cette première édition nous permettra de compter plus d'élèves au sein de cet atelier Maths en Jeans dans les années à venir afin d'y découvrir le monde et le plaisir de la Recherche mathématique.

En savoir plus sur ce concours



Since October, the students of the mathematical research workshop of the Lycée Français de San Francisco have been working on 12 problems presented by Canadian and French researchers.

These problems are designed for Middle and High School students and have prompted our students to discover notions that for some of them, they will not study for several years.

These 15 bright students, from grades 9 to 12, with the support of their two teachers, met once a week
and worked assiduously, even during their lunch hour! They are getting ready to go to Montreal at the end of March to enter a Mathematics Congress, "MATH.en.JEANS". They will present their research to all the other participants : students from the Lycées in Chicago, New York, Ottawa as well as the two high schools in Montreal.

Our team of 15 aspiring researchers will make a presentation to an audience of about 170 people (students, researchers, PhD students, professors) at the Université de Montréal during four days otherwise filled with researchers' lectures, Mathémagie and visits to the city of Montreal. They will first be hosted in a youth hostel and then in the families of Stanislas College in order to establish ties with young Montrealers of their age.

This is the first time that LFSF will be participating in this major initiative, which is running its second edition in North America. The Lycée has greatly contributed to make this trip financially accessible to these students. We hope that the success of this first visit will allow us to count more students in our LFSF Math research workshop in order to discover the pleasure of Mathematical Research.

MARCH 3 | 7:30pm

LFSF Auditorium Theater

Tickets + Information


Depuis plus de 15 ans, The Sun Kings est un des meilleurs groupes de reprises des chansons des Beatles aux Etats Unis. Avec un répertoire de plus de 150 chansons, ils couvrent toute l'époque de la Beatles Mania.

For over 15 years, the Sun Kings has been covering a wide range of the Beatles most famous titles, honoring the band and the era.

REVIEW
THE SUNKINGS BRING BEATLES' MAGIC TO DOWNTOWN FAIRFIELD
by Tony Wade February 26, 2017


FAIRFIELD—The Sun King's motto is "A Beatles Tribute as Nature Intended" and it is so true. The Beatles were, of course, in many respects larger than life, but the remarkable thing about them was how they really always remained four regular (albeit incredibly musically gifted) guys just making music together

That fact is what makes this tribute work on the level that it does.

The Sun Kings, sans costumes, wigs, mustaches or faked accents, brought the essence of the Beatles to Fairfield on Saturday, February 25, 2017.

Even before the show began there was a buzz all about the Downtown Theatre. To be sure a lot of that was created by the near capacity crowd, but also the building itself was glowing.

Literally.

Local impresario Jeff Trager had told me about the lights and effects that Spectrum Systems SF had created for the exterior, lobby and inside of the theatre, but they had to be experienced to fully appreciate their awesomeness. The new look added warmth, a flashy but classy ambiance and fed into the excitement that culminated at 8 pm when the band took the stage.

The Sun Kings (Drew Harrison as John Lennon on rhythm guitar, Jeff Toczynski as Paul McCartney on bass and vocals, Bruce Coe as George Harrison on lead guitar and vocals, Steve Scarpelli as Ringo Starr on drums and vocals and Michael Barrett as the orchestrator), kicked off the show with their melodic take on The Isley Brothers' "Twist and Shout" and then the hits came fast and furious.

I think what impressed me was the most was the band's attention to detail. The Sun Kings are not about imitation or simulation, but rather about capturing what made the Beatles so great onstage and in the studio. Their magic if you will.

The nearly 40 song (!) set they played included the obvious hits like "I Saw Her Standing There," "A Hard Days Night," I Want to Hold Your Hand," "Help!," "Hey Jude" and many more.

But they also re-created songs more off the beaten path like "Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown)" and the Carl Perkins tune the Beatles covered that was sung by Ringo, "Honey Don't."

The rich, lush harmonies that made the Beatles so unique were flawlessly reproduced by the Sun Kings on numbers like "If I Fell" and "Nowhere Man."

Other highlights:

*Drew Harrison's achingly earnest pleading vocal on "This Boy" that slid effortlessly back into the harmonious chorus.

*The "VH1 Storytellers" moments where the band explained the backstory of certain songs before making them come alive. For example how cool it must have been for 23 year old John Lennon to have written a Motown-esque song like "You Can't Do That" and then have it covered by the actual Supremes.

*The focus on the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love and the Beatles album most associated with it. The five tunes The Sun Kings did from that album included "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band," "With A Little Help From My Friends," "Lucy In The Sky with Diamonds," "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (Reprise)," and a show stopping version of "A Day In The Life."

As it happens, the day of the show, February 25th, would have been George Harrison's 74th birthday. The Sun Kings' tribute to the Quiet Beatle featured tunes like "Do You Want to Know a Secret," "If I Needed Someone," Here Comes the Sun," Birthday" and an electrifying performance of "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" that brought the crowd to its feet in a well-deserved standing ovation.

As a huge John Lennon fan I was so grateful they did some of my fave songs of his including "Don't Let Me Down," and "The Ballad of John & Yoko."

From toe-tappin' rock and roll ("Day Tripper," "We Can Work It Out," Revolution") to poignant melodies that brought smiles to everyone's face ("Penny Lane," "In My Life, "Yesterday") the faux Liverpool lads were in the zone the entire night.

You could fill a yellow submarine with all the songs they didn't perform, but like the actual band, they somehow left us incredibly satisfied and yet still wanting more.
