The Math of Puppet-Making

featuring Dave Privett and Tim Chartier

Thursday, December 7
6:30 pm to 7:30 pm ET

(in person)

What do Muppets like Kermit the Frog and Fozzie Bear have to do with math?  It’s in their construction!  They both start with two-dimensional patterns that need to be turned into three-dimensional shapes.  How does this happen?  And can we go in reverse, turning a 3D object into a 2D pattern?  Learn how this happens and how it connects to calculus, then construct your own dragon puppet skull — no prior knowledge of calculus is needed!
