Collaboration is at the very core of the museum, so please take some time to share your thoughts, comments and ideas.
My son and I LOVED the Math Walking tour!
Mr. Whitney dovetailed fundamental principles of mathematics with the sculptures at the Hirshorn Sculpture garden and common things visible at the National Mall in easily understood terms. My son was intrigued with everything Mr. Whitney did. Alex particularly enjoyed the demonstrations using hand held objects (ellipse and circle), using simple tools (sextant, ruler) to deduce the height of the Washington Monument and Capital Building. In short, it brought math and math principles into three dimensions and that is is all around us in daily life. The “hidden” pentagon and the explanation was very interesting too.
Thank you very much and I hope the Musuem of Mathematics (momath) continues to participate in the Festival and provide this excellent Tour.
As a proud Termesphere owner, I’ll vouch for the beauty and mathematical wonder of Dick’s amazing artwork. Beyond their absolutely unique visual immersion, as a visitor-draw they can’t be beat.
I have a collection of renderings, representing 3D objects made by packing identical regular pyramids base square, wich can be see at : http://dan-r-bocancea.smugmug.com/.
I’m planing to use a 3D printer and make real objects … If there is anny interest , i love to make a contribution to the Museum Collection .
Thank-you Dan R. B.
Thanks for your comment. Current plans for the Museum include an art gallery for temporary exhibits of mathematical art, and we hope to display a wide range of artworks.
I would love to see one of my Termesphere in the Museum of Mathematics. Check out my website. Thanks, Dick Termes
