What We're Doing: Multivariable Calculus Visits the Math Museum in New York City
Posted 10/22/2013 09:17PM

The Berkshire School Multivariable Calculus class traveled all the way to New York City to visit the only mathematics museum in the United States -- MoMath.

 

George Blinick, Jimmy Chung, Michelle Jung, Nguyen Nguyen, Christine Qi, Cyrus Rothwell-Ferraris, and Catherine Xu explored the two floors of the museum which is entirely dedicated to mathematics.

 

Mathematics illuminates the patterns that abound in our world. The National Museum of Mathematics strives to enhance public understanding and perception of mathematics. Its dynamic exhibits and programs stimulate inquiry, spark curiosity, and reveal the wonders of mathematics. The museum’s activities lead a broad and diverse audience to understand the evolving, creative, human, and aesthetic nature of mathematics.

 

The students explored the fractal exhibits and also had a lot of fun with the puzzles and photo distortion exhibit.  The Math Square was also a big hit.
