MoMath is proud to be one of the founding partners of the Global Math Project (globalmathproject.org), which aims to delight and excite one million people with an interesting piece of mathematics during one special week each year.
This year, Global Math Week begins on 10-10-17.
In celebration of this event, MoMath has helped organize a symposium for mathematicians, math educators, and those who are involved with math outreach. All are welcome to attend this free event on Saturday, October 7, at NYU’s Courant Institute, but you must register (see below) to participate.
A celebration of Global Math Week will also take place later that evening at the National Museum of Mathematics, from 7:30 pm to 9:30 pm. Come experience more than three dozen engaging math exhibits, plus enjoy music and refreshments, with some of the nation’s top names in mathematics. Registration (below) is also required for this event.
The next morning, on Sunday, October 8, all are invited to bring the entire family to MoMath free of charge from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm, courtesy of OppenheimerFunds.
John Conway, renowned Princeton mathematician, will be on hand from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm and from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm to meet, greet, and chat with visitors to the Museum.
Thank you to the Overdeck Family Foundation, Two Sigma, OppenheimerFunds, McGraw-Hill, the Julia Robinson Mathematics Festival, Gerry Ohrstrom, and Dexter Senft for their support.
