Pythagorize with MoMath

MoMath’s public demonstrations of the Pythagorean theorem have brought hundreds of people together to celebrate the wonder of mathematics. Take a look at the Pythagorize Seattle and Pythagorize the Flatiron events below. Maybe your city will be next!

phduniversityofwashington2On Pythagoras Day 2015, MoMath and the Pacific Science Center brought an all-new MathHappening to the city of Seattle! This collaboration took place in honor of Seattle’s historic Triangle Pub. The Triangle Pub was selected from triangular buildings around the country because its dimensions measure 8 meters x 15 meters x 17 meters — a Pythagorean triple that just happened to correspond with the date.
