Bard Student Organizes Math Museum Exhibit in Ulster County Elementary School
Math Midway 2 Go features six different exhibits: The Ring of Fire, Roller Graphicoaster, Funny Face, The Organ Function Grinder, Miles of Tiles, and The Number Line Tightrope. The Funny Face Computer was a student favorite; it takes your picture and then distorts it using a mathematical equation. The students also enjoyed creating beautiful tessellations with Miles of Tiles.
Joy Sebesta ’13, who is now enrolled in the Bard MAT Program and plans to become a math teacher at a local school, organized this educational project. Sebesta is a past leader of the Bard Math Circle, coordinator for the Mid-Hudson Teachers’ Math Circle, and PTA treasurer for the Marlboro Elementary School; she also leads two local Girl Scout troops. The Math Midway 2 Go is a production of the National Museum of Mathematics, America’s only museum dedicated to the wonders of mathematics. Please visit momath.org for more information.
