Symmetry Code

Exploring Symmetry Using the Wolfram Language

Students in grades 7 through 12 are invited to see how computer programming can be used for explorations into mathematical topics. Using Mathematica, students will explore the topic of symmetry, leading to creation of their own MoMath logos. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn about symmetry and introductory computing, plus take home a t-shirt with your very own MoMath logo design!

No prior programming experience is necessary, but completion of an algebra course with trigonometry is required. Students must bring their own PC, Mac, Linux, or Chromebook laptop.

The National Museum of Mathematics extends its gratitude to BNY Mellon for its support of this exciting program.

Register for one of the sessions via the links below. Sessions are $150. As each session will cover the same material, students should sign up for only one session. If available, tickets at the door will incur an additional charge.

Sunday, September 16, 9:00 am – 12:00 pm
Saturday, September 22, 9:00 am – 12:00 pm

Limited funding is available for students from low-income backgrounds who demonstrate a strong interest in mathematics. To qualify, families must meet the income guidelines of the federal free and reduced lunch program. Email for more information.
