Mathematica

Mathematics has been called the “Queen of the Sciences” for it’s intrinsic beauty and because it has mothered a host of other sciences and disciplines.

Designed for IBM in 1961 by world-renowned designers Charles and Ray Eames, Mathematica is the first interactive exhibition devoted to Math. It displays the range of mathematics, and uses a time-tested collection of exhibits to share the excitement that mathematicians find in pursuing their science. Through a combination of hands-on activities and dynamic models, visitors are invited to explore how math has impacted so many facets of our contemporary world, from the devices we carry in our hands to the changes in social sciences, art, music, and architecture.

Exhibits include:

Celestial Mechanics
History Wall
Mathematics Image Wall
Mathematical Model Case
Minimal Surfaces
Mobius Band
Multiplication Machine
Probability
Projective Geometry
