Infinite Dreams: The Story and Childhood Games of the Mathematical Genius Ramanujan

Friday, August 14 at 6:30 pm EDT (New York)

When author Amy Alznauer was only five years old, her father made an astounding discovery.  In a box of dusty papers in Cambridge Library, he found the Lost Notebook of the mathematical genius Srinivasa Ramanujan.  Ramanujan was one of the greatest mathematicians the world has ever known, and his romantic story is sure to inspire listeners of all ages.  Alznauer, who also teaches mathematics at Northwestern University, will take participants inside some of the puzzles that enchanted Ramanujan’s young mind.  Come for an evening of mathematical stories, magic squares, geometric kolam drawing, and Goats & Tigers, the game of strategy Ramanujan played as a boy.  Fun and inspiring for the whole family! 

Family Fridays is designed to bring families together to enjoy a diverse array of engaging mathematical activities, promoting interest and enthusiasm among kids and adults alike.  The activities are designed so that all attendees, regardless of age, can participate on an equal footing.  Thanks to the generous support of Two Sigma, this program is free to attendees.

Here’s what participants have to say:

“I was very impressed at how such a program could be presented that truly worked for all ages!  I, at 68, was as fascinated as the kids.  It was fun watching them grabbing what they could and happily keeping up with the activities.”

“Super excellent for all ages — one of best programs ever (not just Family Fridays — all programs everywhere!)”

“Wow!  It’s the first time we are attending Family Friday series.  We are so impressed!  You guys are amazing!  Thank you!”
