“Which One Doesn’t Belong?” with Christopher Danielson
November 10 at 6:30 PM

Belong

If you’ve ever wondered whether hearts are shapes, or why polygons need to have straight sides, you’re in for an evening of great thinking and fun with author Christopher Danielson. He’ll bring the provocations and materials you’ll need to explore the length of spirals, the measures of angles, and the nature of vertices. You’ll find yourself asking new mathematical questions in response to his award-winning Which One Doesn’t Belong? A Shapes Book. Fun and challenges await for all ages and geometry backgrounds. Christopher will be available to sign his book; copies will be available in Additions, the shop at MoMath.
