Fun with Mathematical Definitions
Thursday, October 1 at 6:30 pm ET (New York)
Is an elevator a vehicle? Is a hot dog a sandwich? Is a heart a shape? Is an emoji a word? Well…it depends! The answers to these questions can vary based on your definitions of vehicle, sandwich, shape, and word. Precise definitions are essential tools of mathematics, but few definitions start out as precise as they'll need to be later on. Come play with the boundary between precision and ambiguity in this fast-paced, participatory session featuring award-winning author and math educator Christopher Danielson.
This event is great for families, especially for children ages 10 and up.
This is a live-streamed event. Occasional video recordings are made available for a fee at videos.momath.org.
