The Windows into Elementary Mathematics Project of the Fields Institute invites prominent mathematicians to discuss topics from elementary mathematics. The goal of the project is to provide students, parents and teachers with insights into mathematics and into the thinking of mathematicians.

Each topic includes the following components: video clips, interactive content, activities, and a poster on the theme.
