Family Fridays at MoMath
Presented by Two Sigma

Next Up

“Build a Hat Tiling!”

featuring Chaim Goodman-Strauss

Friday, June 21
6:30 pm to 8:00 pm

(in person)

You may have heard about the newest discovery in mathematics: the Hat tile.  Now be part of history in the making by assembling a giant Hat Tile Floor at MoMath!  Will it be a world record?  The group construction will be led by MoMath’s Outreach Mathematician, Chaim Goodman-Strauss, one of the team members that brought the Hat, the first “aperiodic monotile,” to the world.  This shape can be fit together to cover a never-ending surface – but only in a way that will never exactly repeat!

Family Fridays is designed to bring family members of all ages together to enjoy a diverse array of engaging mathematical activities, promoting interest and enthusiasm among kids and adults alike.

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!”
