Groundbreaking Discoveries in Mathematics

Learn about the amazing discovery of the “einstein tile” known as the Hat and its close relative, the Spectre, a “chiral” aperiodic monotile. Both are the first-ever shapes that can tile the plane endlessly but only without ever quite repeating the pattern, discovered by math enthusiasts and researchers David Smith, Joseph Samuel Myers, Craig Kaplan, and MoMath’s very own Chaim Goodman-Strauss.  Read about these shapes and hear the stories behind each discovery!  Visit momath.org/the-hat and momath.org/spectre for articles, videos, and even a creative art competition inspired by these discoveries!
