Steven Strogatz

Back by popular demand!  Ever wanted to ask a mathematician something, maybe about a curious new idea you have, or a concept you’d like to understand better?  Don’t know whom to ask?  Here’s your chance!

All are welcome, and no question is too basic (although plenty may be too hard!). 

Ask a Mathematician will feature Steven Strogatz, MoMath’s 2021–2022 Distinguished Visiting Professor for the Public Dissemination of Mathematics.

Starting in September 2022, MoMath’s 2022–2023 Distinguished Visiting Professor, Tim Chartier, will host Ask a Mathematician.

These are online-only events.  Occasional video recordings are made available for a fee at
