Alternative Perspective, opening soon in Composite, the gallery at MoMath members-only sneak preview
Thursday, August 13, at 7:00 pm EDT (New York)
MoMath is thrilled to present a groundbreaking new art show in Composite, the gallery at MoMath — virtually!  In Alternative Perspective, artist Anton Bakker takes us on a journey into a world of mathematical beauty with an added twist: a change in perspective seems to change the very reality of the object before you.  Anton’s sculptures — executed in steel, bronze, or as digital interactives — fix points in space that, as the eye connects them, reveal harmonious alignments as three-dimensional paths.  Lines, curves, knots, spirals, Möbius strips, optical illusions, and fractals — all are explored in this highly engaging virtual show.  Bakker’s work is complemented by two special pieces: an unusual and surprising work by engineers-turned-artists Walt van Ballegooijen and Hans Kuiper and a creative mathematical sculpture by former Bell Labs scientist Alan White.  Learn more and register at alternative.momath.org.

Free Family Fridays at MoMath presented by Two Sigma: “Infinite Dreams: The Story and Childhood Games of the Mathematical Genius Ramanujan” with Amy Alznauer
Friday, August 14, 6:30 pm EDT (New York)
When author Amy Alznauer was only five years old, her father made an astounding discovery.  In a box of dusty papers in Cambridge Library, he found the Lost Notebook of the mathematical genius Srinivasa Ramanujan.  Ramanujan was one of the greatest mathematicians the world has ever known, and his romantic story is sure to inspire listeners of all ages.  Alznauer, who also teaches mathematics at Northwestern University, will take participants inside some of the puzzles that enchanted Ramanujan’s young mind.  Come for an evening of mathematical stories, magic squares, geometric kolam drawing, and Goats & Tigers, the game of strategy Ramanujan played as a boy.  Fun and inspiring for the whole family!  Learn more and register at familyfridays.momath.org.

Free Math Encounters — Online “Airy Predictions: The Mathematics of Air Quality and Weather Forecasts” with Kristin Lauter
Wednesday, September 2, 4:00 pm and 7:00 pm EDT (New York)
The mathematics of weather prediction has a long history, using quantitative models of the atmosphere and initial measurements of temperature, humidity, wind, pressure, and density to generate forecasts.  Air quality in cities is also influenced by atmospheric conditions, so this type of modeling takes on an even greater importance.  Join Kristin Lauter of Microsoft Research as she shares her work on Project Eclipse, a dense sensor network being deployed in cities to help model air quality.  Kristin will also explain how math is used not just to forecast the weather but in an effort to improve our public health.  Special introduction by Jennifer Chayes, UC Berkeley Associate Provost of the Division of Computing, Data Science, and Society, and Dean of the School of Information.  Register for this free presentation at mathencounters.org.

Fun with Mathematical Definitions
Thursday, October 1, 6:30 pm EDT (New York)
Is an elevator a vehicle?  Is a hot dog a sandwich?  Is a heart a shape?  Is an emoji a word?  Well…it depends!  The answers to these questions can vary based on your definitions of vehicle, sandwich, shape, and word.  Precise definitions are essential tools of mathematics, but few definitions start out as precise as they’ll need to be later on.  Come play with the boundary between precision and ambiguity in this fast-paced, participatory session featuring award-winning author and math educator Christopher Danielson.  Learn more and register at definitions.momath.org.


Integrators: The MoMath High School Volunteer Program
MoMath accepts a limited number of high school students for ongoing volunteer roles during summer vacation and/or the academic year.  The Integrators program offers a unique chance to improve interpersonal and communication skills, explore mathematical concepts, and learn valuable job skills.  MoMath students interact with visitors (on the Museum floor or online) and train with professional educators, interpreters, and managers.  Students who participate during summer vacation commit five days per week.  During the school year, this opportunity requires a commitment of approximately one day per week, typically a Saturday or Sunday, from September through June.  Apply now for the 2020-2021 school year (online and/or in person)!  Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis.  Learn more and apply at volunteers.momath.org.
