We built mathematician kits!

We explored the magic area puzzle, cut and assembled linkages, taped impossible cylinders, made cipher nametags, proved that 64=65, a geometric dissection with hinged pieces (circle – square – heart) and more.  Read about the whole kit here.  There are links to printable versions, and notes about each project.

Thanks to Quan Nguyen, Mason Chng and Matthew Hertel as well as the Neill-Cochran House Museum Staff for some great work and great hospitality!
