Professor George Hart presents a seminar entitled ‘Maths is Cool!’ George Hart is a sculptor and applied mathematician who demonstrates how mathematics is cool and creative in ways you might not have expected.
Whether he is slicing a bagel into two linked halves or leading hundreds of participants in an intricate geometric sculpture barn raising, he always finds original ways to share the beauty of mathematical thinking.
Geometric sculptures, mathematical puzzles, insightful videos, hands-on workshop activities, and the museum of mathematics in NYC are all means to demonstrate that maths is a living, creative, joyful subject – i.e. that Maths is Cool!
In this mathematics seminar, Professor George Hart will present and discuss a variety of these works from his creative output, and show you some giant mathematical artworks, 3D printed mathematical models, and original workshop projects.
