2019 April-June Upcoming Events

Dear MoMath friends,

Look who’s coming to MoMath this spring!  Take on an impossible mission with Berkeley Math Circle Founder and Director Zvezdelina Stankova, journey back to the late 1700s with Princeton Professor of Mathematics Maria Chudnovsky, and join UC Berkeley Professor of Economics and Statistics Lisa Goldberg in an investigation of whether the hot hand phenomenon is real.  Plus, explore the interconnections between math, music, and the art of problem solving with saxophonist Marcus Miller and jazz pianist and mathematician Rob Schneiderman, and the link between math, language, and puzzles with Princeton Professor of Linguistics Joshua Katz.  And, for the youngest math lovers and their families, the popular duo of Mark Mitton and Manjul Bhargava returns to bring us a dazzling night of math and magic.

Family Fridays at MoMath presented by Two Sigma: “Mission Impossible” with Zvezdelina Stankova
Friday, March 29, 6:30 pm

Don’t let the title of this presentation fool you!  This Family Fridays will not be a leisurely evening spent watching a famous movie — it will instead be a battle of epic proportion!  We will create and direct armies of clones on a dangerous escape mission, based on a famous simple game with pebbles created by Russian teenager (and later Fields Medalist) Maxim Kontsevich.  Solving the game with Zvezdelina Stankova, Founder and Director of the Berkeley Math Circle, will plunge us into imaginative and creative realms as we explore problem-solving wonders and question whether it is possible to prove the impossible.  Learn more and register at familyfridays.momath.org.

GeoGebra Day
Saturday, March 30, 10:00 am

Don’t miss this opportunity to meet and learn from the creators of GeoGebra, here from Austria for one day only!  Sessions for families, educators, and the public will be running throughout the day at MoMath.  Plus, the demo room will be open all day with experts available to show you some of the amazing visualizations and explorations made possible through this powerful program.  Sign up for one or more sessions, then help us build a giant GeoGebra-inspired construction at the end of the day.  Learn more and register at geogebra.momath.org.

Math Encounters: “Parties, Doughnuts, and Coloring: From Königsberg to Cutting Edge Research” with Maria Chudnovsky
Wednesday, April 3, 4:00 pm and 7:00 pm

Leonhard Euler’s late 1700s paper on the Seven Bridges of Königsberg launched a new field in mathematics, graph theory, that focuses on representing information about connections between pairs of objects.  Graphs are widely used today as a modeling tool in engineering, the social sciences, and many other fields.  Join Princeton University Professor Maria Chudnovsky on a journey that begins with some simple problems in graph theory and leads to an exploration of some of the most active fields in modern mathematical research.  Learn more and register at mathencounters.org.

Quadrivium, MoMath’s Math+Music Salon, featuring Marcus Miller: “Resolution”
Friday, April 12, 8:00 pm

How do we solve problems?  What do math and music have to do with finding solutions?  Because of their abstract nature, these two disciplines are useful in training our minds to develop systematic and powerful methods to address thorny issues.  The best practices, attitudes, and mindsets for composers, improvisors, and mathematicians are under constant refinement by practitioners of these disciplines and can be transferred to all aspects of life, including business, interpersonal relationships, and the arts.  Join Marcus Miller, Harvard-trained mathematician and popular jazz saxophonist, and guest Rob Schneiderman, Professor of Mathematics at Lehman College and jazz pianist, as they entertain and enlighten us during an
engaging and musical evening focused on the art of problem solving.  Register and learn more at quadrivium.momath.org.

Wednesday, April 17, 6:30 pm

In this interactive presentation suitable for all lovers of language, math, and puzzles, Joshua Katz will share six facts (at least) about English and other languages that have in one way or another to do with the number six.  For example, do you know what the connection is between six and the first word in any dictionary of English, the seemingly mundane but in fact fascinating indefinite article “a”?  Or why the letter “alpha” could be used for 1 in Ancient Greek, “beta” for 2, and “gamma” for 3, but the sixth letter, “zeta,” stood for 7?  Come learn and explore with one of Princeton’s “rockstar professors,” all in celebration of MoMath’s sixth
birthday.  Learn more and register at six.momath.org.

Volumes, the MoMath book club: Infinite Powers
A special discussion with mathematician and author Steven Strogatz
Saturday, April 27, 1:00 pm

MoMath is pleased to announce a special edition of Volumes this month!  In lieu of the usual book discussion, MoMath is delighted to welcome preeminent math personality and Cornell University math professor Steven Strogatz to discuss his new book, Infinite Powers, an appealing explanation of calculus — how it works and why it makes our lives immeasurably better.  Without calculus, we wouldn’t have cell phones, TV, GPS, or ultrasound.  We wouldn’t have unraveled DNA, or discovered Neptune, or figured out how to put 5,000 songs in our pockets.  Steve’s newest book demonstrates that calculus is not about complexity; it’s about simplicity, and about how an unreal number — infinity — can be used to tackle real‑world problems, breaking them down into easier ones and then reassembling the answers into solutions that feel miraculous.  Learn more and register at volumes.momath.org.

Math Encounters: “Hot Hands: What Data Science Can (And Can’t) Tell Us about Basketball Trends” with Lisa Goldberg
