Math Encounters: From Flapping Birds to Space Telescopes: the Mathematics of Origami
Wednesday, July 3, 4:00 pm or 7:00 pm
Join physicist and origami expert Robert Lang and learn how mathematics transformed an ancient Japanese art form, spawning both practical applications and a whole new genre of art. For further information and to register, visit mathencounters.org.
Folding in Geometry
Friday, July 19, 7:00 pm
Join the Museum of Mathematics as it presents a very hands-on Family Friday event. Wendy Zeichner and Aldo Putigano of OrigamiUSA, the largest origami organization in the country, will take visitors on a tour of the mountains and valleys of paper folding. Make a piece of paper pop up into a frog; interconnect some paper squares and make a magic star; experiment with shape and color and make something beautiful to take home. Through origami, parents and children alike will explore the geometric properties of objects and how a line here and a line there can result in… a lion here and a lion there. For further information and to register, visit origami.momath.org.
Math Encounters: The Cosmic Distance Ladder
Wednesday, August 7, 4:00 pm or 7:00 pm
Join Fields Medalist and UCLA professor Terry Tao as he demonstrates how basic math can be used to estimate distances that are out of this world. For further information and to register, visit mathencounters.org.
