Modular Mondays (online)
Fridays at 4:30 pm ET (New York)

Folding Fridays will become Modular Mondays for the months of July and August.  Modulars are magnificent mathematical models that are made of many easily foldable units, which are then assembled together to form the final shape.  The individual units look different from the final model, making the assembly a fun puzzle that challenges your hand-eye coordination and hones your spatial reasoning skills and, of course, uses plenty of math.  Satisfying to fold and beautiful to behold, these modulars are a favorite for people of all ages and skill levels.  Learn more and register at modularmondays.momath.org.

Wednesday, August 10 at 4:00 pm and 7:00 pm ET (New York)
What is the weather forecast for next week?  Can we predict turbulence and should we worry about it during flights?  How do galaxies evolve?  We can describe and understand complex physical phenomena by modeling such systems as collections of “particles,” where particles can be anything from atoms and molecules to stars and galaxies.  But even the fastest computers cannot directly compute all the interactions when the number of particles is very large.  Math to the rescue!  Join mathematician Cristina Draghicescu as she describes how mathematical methods can tame these seemingly impossible computations.  Special introduction by Susanne Brenner, Boyd Professor of Mathematics at Louisiana State University and current President of SIAM (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics).  Math Encounters is MoMath’s popular free public presentation series celebrating the spectacular world of mathematics, produced with support from the Simons Foundation.  Learn more and register at mathencounters.momath.org.

Modular Mondays (online)
Monday, August 22 at 4:30 pm ET (New York)
Folding Fridays will become Modular Mondays for the months of July and August.  Modulars are magnificent mathematical models that are made of many easily foldable units, which are then assembled together to form the final shape.  The individual units look different from the final model, making the assembly a fun puzzle that challenges your hand-eye coordination and hones your spatial reasoning skills and, of course, uses plenty of math.  Satisfying to fold and beautiful to behold, these modulars are a favorite for people of all ages and skill levels.  Learn more and register at modularmondays.momath.org.

Monday, September 19 at 6:30 pm ET (New York)

Volumes continues!  Join Distinguished Visiting Professor and author Tim Chartier for an online discussion of his Get in the Game: An Interactive Introduction to Sports Analytics.  In 2013, NBA point guard Steph Curry wowed crowds when he sunk 11 out of 13 three-pointers for a game total of 54 points — only seven other players, including Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant, had scored more in a game at Madison Square Garden.  Four years later, the University of Connecticut women’s basketball team won its hundredth straight game, defeating South Carolina 66–55.  And in 2010, one forecaster — an octopus named Paul — correctly predicted the outcome of all of Germany’s matches in the FIFA World Cup.  These are surprising events — but are they truly improbable?  In Get in the Game, mathematician and sports analytics expert Tim Chartier helps us answer that question — condensing complex mathematics down to coin tosses and dice throws to give readers both an introduction to statistics and a new way to enjoy sporting events.  Learn more and register at volumes.momath.org.

Math goes to the movies!  Join MoMath’s 2022–2023 Distinguished Visiting Professor Tim Chartier and special guests Seth Caplan and Dano Johnson for a discussion of Flatland.  Based on Edwin Abbott’s 1884 science fiction novella, Flatland brings us into a society of two-dimensional beings — sentient squares, circles, triangles, and other shapes, none of whom can conceive of a universe that is anything but perfectly flat.  That is, until one day, when a heretical young hexagon named Hex dares to dream of a third dimension, and she and her grandfather Arthur Square embark on a trans-dimensional journey into the wildest reaches of geometry.  Seth Caplan is an award-winning independent producer and filmmaker.  His live features, animations, and documentaries have been shown at many film festivals, including Sundance, Tribeca, and SXSW.  Dano Johnson is a director whose animated ads, music videos, and short films have won numerous awards and played at 50 film festivals.  Learn more and register at starring.momath.org.
