## 2022/2023 Projects, Sponsorships and Collaborations

This list is both incomplete and growing, but we’ll continue to add and share.  We are interested in helping any organization interested in sponsoring programs, installations and events that bring mathematics to the public conversation, increase access to learning and provide more pathways to positive engagement and success in mathematics and STEM. This is a busy table runner!  And it represents

## More Collaborations: Madam Math Circle, Math Clubs and the Almaden Public Library

Madam Math Circle is cofounded by Sheryl Hsu who completed a really great outreach project for the Alamden Quicksilver Mining Museum early this summer.  Sheryl has since requested some table materials and has take them to some local math circles with her colleagues at Madam Math which she cofounded.   The next stop will be the Almaden Public Library this

## Take and Make: Superfluous Square from Ivan Moscovitch’s Supergames

Supergames by Ivan Moscovitch is a super fun book. This puzzle was a puzzle to convert to CAD, until intern Quan Nguyen and I realized that the “missing square” might be the same as the other missing square puzzles.  In fact it is exactly the same.  You may be able to see it looking at the solution blocks below.  Corel,

## Take and Make: Puzzle A Day

This puzzle is available to buy various places, but you can also just make your own.  We colored the wood with Bingo daubers! MH Intern Quan Nguyen worked out a number of solutions and made the CAD file for this one.  Our files are available to use: in AI, SVG and CorelDraw Formats There’s also a handout that can be laminated

## Take and Make: Platonic Solids Coasters!

Plain Platonic Solids are pretty cool – fun shapes, interesting properties from side type: triangle square and pentagons; number of edges; number of faces and more.  But they are also plain. Fall intern and UTeach Maker, Maddie Wallace took on the challenge to make some accessories that would create a way we can sort them, and match the objects to

## FAB16 Conference: Making and Math

Interns Saurav Gandhi and Anh Nguyen co-presented the “Making and Math” session at the FAB16 Conference. They presented several of the math models we have constructed over the years including Koch Fractals, Mini Unit Circles, and Curve Stitching.  Participants were shown how they can get creative with topics in Math by participating in making a Fractal Collage (see image gallery

## Take and Make – Voronoi Flipbook

After talking with Minnesota Landscape Arboretum, we began searching for new ideas to interact with Voronoi Diagrams. During our pre-pandemic presentations and events we allowed people to interact with a Voronoi simulation that had been posted on Wikipedia. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Voronoi_growth_euclidean.gif While brainstorming we decided to buy a flipbook kit and test out what we could do with them. One of our
