Family Fridays at MoMath
Presented by Two Sigma

Upcoming online presentation

Stars, Graphs, and Multiplication

Friday, August 20 at 6:30 pm ET (New York)

Online and in person!

There are many ways to draw a mathematical star, each with a different number of points, lines, intersections, and symmetries.  Join Dr. Gregory Michel, MoMath’s Chief of Mathematics, to unravel the mysteries behind these beautiful — and highly symmetric — two-dimensional shapes.  Using graph theory, explore how simple geometric patterns can teach mathematically rich lessons about numbers, shapes, and multiplication.

On Friday, August 20, you can join Family Fridays in person at the Museum (11 East 26th Street) — or online by participating in a livestream broadcast of the event.

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!”
