Dear MoMath friends,
MoMath is pleased to offer FREE registration for the following events this week.
Pythagoras to Present Day: Math's Greatest Hits Monday, September 21 at 7:00 pm ET (New York) Join MoMath's Distinguished Visiting Professor for the Public Dissemination of Mathematics, Alex Kontorovich, for the second session of an eight-week mini-course studying the twists and turns of mathematical ideas throughout history, including a fresh look at the K to 12 curriculum and beyond. Learn more and register for the second session on September 21 for free at p2p.momath.org.
Bending the Arc Wednesday, September 23 at 6:30 pm ET (New York) “The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.” — Martin Luther King, Jr. Bending the Arc is a new virtual program aimed at demystifying mathematics for Black youth. Join an online panel discussion followed by more intimate breakout room conversations that will give participants the opportunity to interact with leading Black mathematicians and scientists and to explore how these accomplished individuals have used math in their careers. The program will be hosted by former NFL (Baltimore Ravens) professional, current MIT Math PhD candidate, and MoMath Trustee John Urschel. Learn more and register for free at arc.momath.org.
Write Angles: "Code Breaking: Patterns and Sequences" Thursday, September 24 at 6:30 pm ET (New York) Perhaps nowhere is the intersection of math and words more obvious than in cryptography. Even if a code does not use numbers or letters at all, the only way to break it is to recognize patterns and understand what comes next. Can you combine your math and language skills to crack the code and decipher the secret message? Join us for this second program from 23 18 9 20 5 1 14 7 12 5 19. Learn more and register for free at writeangles.momath.org.
Equilibrium, an adult evening of mathematical games Friday, September 25 at 7:00 pm ET (New York) Grab your most interesting dice and join Ed Pegg, Jr. (of Wolfram Mathematica and math consultant for the television show NUMB3RS) for a night of experimental game play. Using basic guidelines, Ed will lead the group through some existing dice games that we'll play together, then open the floor to new ideas. Dust off your D6s, D12s, D20s, D30s, D48s, D120s, and other dice and roll with it. Learn more and register for free at equilibrium.momath.org.
