Join MoMath’s 2022–2023 Distinguished Visiting Professor Tim Chartier and author Ben Orlin for a discussion of Ben’s Math with Bad Drawings, which reveals to us what math actually is; its myriad uses, its strange symbols, and the wild leaps of logic and faith that define the usually impenetrable work of the mathematician.  Truth and knowledge come in multiple forms: colorful drawings, encouraging jokes, and the stories and insights of an empathetic teacher who believes that math should belong to everyone.  Math with Bad Drawings is a life-changing book for the math-estranged and math-enamored alike.

Order your book today from Additions, the shop at MoMath, and help support the premier math museum in North America while also scoring free admission for your teen or tween to this engaging conversation.  Just place your order online by December 13 or stop by the shop, then forward a copy of your receipt to along with the name and email address of the teen/tween who will receive complimentary registration for this Tween Primes event hosted on Zoom.
