Exhibit Tangents

Join visiting mathematician Paul Zeitz on a deep dive into your favorite MoMath exhibits in this occasional series.  You already know the exhibits are fun, but now you can peek under the hood to see the real mathematics lurking inside.  Not only will you enjoy a newfound perspective, but you’ll leave with some thought-provoking challenges you can continue to ponder even after you’ve left the Museum.  No questions are off the table!  

Paul Zeitz is a professor of Mathematics at the University of San Francisco, an International Math Olympiad participant and trainer, co-founder and Board Chairman of Proof School, co-founder of the San Francisco Math Circle, co-founder of the Bay Area Math Olympiad, and author of The Art and Craft of Problem Solving.

Each Exhibit Tangents session will consider different exhibits.
