Making Math More

Did you know there is a new museum in New York City called the Museum of Mathematics (or MoMath for short)? They say the grand opening will be in 2012 at 11 East 26th Street in Manhattan. I am hoping to visit it over April vacation.

For now, we've got MoMath guru George Hart's Math Monday column in MAKE Magazine. Here's a nice piece on quilting and geometry. Check it out. You and your students could try building octiamonds with pattern blocks if you aren't a big quilter.
