Math museum in NYC?

090803 Mathmuseum P465
As a mathematical biz in the area – we would like to see a math museum in NYC – Glen, how do sign up for your math tours? There are like 10 articles about this and not a single bit of information on the actual tours… Is this the site?

For ten years, Glen Whitney, a mathematician, worked as an algorithm manager at the giant quantitative hedge fund Renaissance Technologies, on Long Island. He was the man—or one of many—in the so-called “black box.” During that time, Renaissance did extremely well, as did Whitney, and so when he left the firm, last year, he had the wherewithal to devote himself to his favorite shower-time epiphany—that what the world needs (if not most, then at least a lot) is a museum devoted to math. The equation goes something like this: for the variables Expertise (E), Computational Power (CP), Capital (C), Risk (R), Altruism (A), Obsession (O), Indifference (I)… The idea behind the museum, which doesn’t yet have a home, is that math is ubiquitous, supercool, underappreciated, poorly taught, and even more poorly learned. To drum up interest in his museum, Whitney has been leading free tours of Manhattan neighborhoods, lingering over the math-y bits.



Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

  1. here is one in germany:

  2. Math is a universal language, perhaps like music. Too much emphasis is placed on English in US schools and too little on math. Try building your family a house with english skills and you’ll see what I mean.

  3. You can get on the mailing list to find out about upcoming tours by sending e-mail to midway@mathmuseum.net. You can also see the first efforts of the math museum, the traveling exhibition called the Math Midway, on Saturday and Sunday, Aug 29-30, at the Urban Academy. For more information, see .
