After our second summer of residency on Governors Island, Mü-Math is ready to go "mobile" again and bring its collection of interactive math activities to your school.
Mü-Math, the Mobile Unit to Promote Mathematical Thinking, is designed and fabricated by neuro-cognitive artist Robert Berkman, and represents the culmination of 3 decades of professional work in pre-kindergarden through college level mathematics classrooms. Reaching into his early experiences working in industrial arts and graphic design, Berkman incorporates sheet metal, laser cut acrylic panels and other off the shelf materials to fashion colorful, interactive activities which incorporate the distinct imagery of NYC. Each exhibit is hand-crafted to include minute details of New York life, from the pentagonal nut used to control fire hydrants to the rapidly disappearing mechanical parking meters. Download our brochure today to find out how you can host Mü-Math at your school!
Note: The name Mü-Math is derived from the Greek letter “mu” (pronounced “mew”) and is commonly used in mathematics to identify certain constants and variables; it is also reminiscent of the term “New Math” which ushered in a revolutionary, albeit confusing, era of mathematics education in the 1960s.
