Math Gems

Tuesdays at 6:30 pm ET (New York)
January 11, 18, 25
February 1, 8, 15
March 1, 8

(in person/online)

In this eight-week minicourse, Distinguished Visiting Professor Steven Strogatz will show you eight of the most beautiful gems in the history of math — clever calculations, nifty numbers, ingenious proofs, and the stories behind them, from cultures around the world — and then invite you to jump in and play with some engaging puzzles based on these jewels of mathematics.

Steve is a Professor of Applied Mathematics from Cornell University and an award-winning mathematician who will bring to the MoMath audience his unique brand of mathematical discourse, as featured in the New York Times blog and several popular books, including New York Times bestseller Infinite Powers.

You can join Math Gems in person at the Museum (11 East 26th Street) — or online by participating in a live-stream broadcast of the event.

Given the current health situation, the in-person cohort will begin online.  We hope to resume in-person sessions when possible.  Those who register for the in-person series will be invited to a special post-session event with Steve sometime during or at the end of the term, likely at an outdoor venue when the weather permits.
