Now Open through August 26
To sum it all up—math is a three ring circus of fun. Math Midway features a range of unique exhibits, from square-wheeled tricycles that ride smoothly on a circular track of catenary arcs, to a plane of laser light that you can pass plastic polyhedra through to find their surprising cross sections.
- Chance to ride a square wheeled tricycle
- A plethora of mind boggling mathematical puzzles
- Limitless types of math fueled fun
Visitors can create unique pen and ink drawings to take home using the Mysterious Harmonograph, or play with the Organ Function Grinder, in which students input a number, set a function, and turn the hand crank to generate both a numerical output and a unique calliope tune which is transformed according to their function.
At the Math Midway visitors can ride a trike with square wheels, spin to win as they learn about probability theory on the Universal Wheel of Chance, illuminate laser shapes-within-shapes in the Ring of Fire, and so much more. Math Midway is a carnival of exploration.
Admission to the exhibit is included with general admission, and completely free to members.
