The MoMath Math Teachers’ Circle

Join the MoMath Roundtable! If you’re a K-6 educator who wants to enjoy or improve your relationship with math, don’t miss this exciting new program at MoMath. Join us for an evening of creative math play and camaraderie. Educators of other grade levels are also welcome.


January 18 — Musical Mathematics
Come explore the relationship between math and music! Pythagoras once said “There is geometry in the humming of the strings; there is music in the spacing of the spheres.” How do vibrating strings and simple ratios inform the Western musical tradition? Is it possible to perfectly tune an instrument using simple ratios? How do the natural frequencies of objects lead to the development of new musical instruments? Join Paul Gallagher from MIT in this mathematical and musical adventure.

February 15 — Games of Chance and Life Lessons
Probability underlies many games of chance, but it’s not all fun and games. Is cell phone insurance a good idea? What about auto or home insurance? How does FEMA decide if it’s going to go in and rescue people in a disaster? Join Phil Dituri to play some games and learn some life lessons, all at the same time.
