Finally … a museum dedicated to math!

Well, it’s been a long time coming.  In a country that has museums dedicated to SPAM®, funerals and hobos, we finally have one dedicated to something much more interesting … mathematics!

Opening on 12/15/12 in New York City, the Museum of Mathematics will offer “dynamic exhibits and programs [that] will stimulate inquiry, spark curiosity, and reveal the wonders of mathematics. The museum’s activities will lead a broad and diverse audience to understand the evolving, creative, human, and aesthetic nature of mathematics.”

If you are interested in learning more about the museum or its founder, check out one of these websites:

I hope you get a chance to check it out!

    This is a perfect opportunity for math obssessed Math Teachers to petiton a class field trip.
    But in order to go, students should write an essay about their favorite mathematician or a mathematical enigma ( in order to make the trip more authentic and mot just a chance for kids to ditch class).
