IC16: Taking It To The Streets: The Value Of Large Public Math Demonstations

Collaboration, coordination, construction, camaraderie, and community - these are not words the public typically associates with mathematics, but putting together large-scale public math demonstrations can literally change public perceptions of mathematics overnight. See how the MathHappening and Math Builds events orchestrated by the National Museum of Mathematics are creating a buzz around the US and providing a new sense of what mathematics is and can be.

IC16: Math Made Real: It's Not Just For Preschool anymore!

Playing with blocks, putting together a puzzle, ordering and rearranging... our youngest students are natural math investigators. But why relegate the fun of physical play and exploration to grade school? Why not continue to captivate students with a math lab kit that gets kids working together and exploring mathematical phenomena with engaging manipulatives? The National Museum of Mathematics is piloting Math Made Real, a series of six activities designed to capture the interest – and the minds – of students right at that critical age when many start to walk away from math. Designed to be distributed in classrooms around the world, Math Made Real will provide teachers with a way to get students excited, and keep them engaged, with the richness of mathematics.

IC16: Around Wild Knots

The process of elaboration of the material of the project Wild Knots, which include computer generated animations, still images and some interactive software, has been interesting from several angles: the selection of the subject, how to recreate an infinitely complicated object with a computer, which media should be used, and which is the audience they are directed to, for instance. It seems that these questions appear in any project of producing mathematical content for the general audience. In this short talk I would like toshare my experience around this project.

IC16: Communicating Modern Mathematics To A Wide Audience: Snapshots Of Modern Mathematics From Oberwolfach

Communicating modern mathematics and mathematical research in writing to a wide audience is a challenging yet important endeavor. Snapshots of modern mathematics from Oberwolfach take on this challenge. These are short texts on modern mathematics aimed at mathematics teachers, science journalists, undergraduate and advanced high school students as well as the interested general public worldwide. But how to present intricate mathematical concepts to an audience without much mathematical training? For example, how do you explain what a “group” is to somebody who never took algebra? We discuss examples from our editing work and present how we try to make mathematics more accessible. One focus will be on common pitfalls that occur when professional mathematician write texts for a broader audience.

IC16: Evolution Of The Mathematical Journal Quadrature (1989-2016)

Is there still a place for “classical” maths journals, moreover in french, nowadays? The experience of the vulgarization journal Quadrature, created in 1989, proves that the answer is yes, as our journal has published the 100th numero in april 2016. Anyway it seems necessary to adapt the classical shape of mathematical articles to the actual theory of journalism and to create appropriate web tools to support the journal. We discuss these different questions there, with examples of recently published articles.

IC16: Mathematics Down To Earth: A Game Of Cartography

How to design a mathematical exhibition in order to catch the attention of people? It is a game of topics, of choices, of new technologies, all of them playing little but fundamental roles. This is the story of one of our attempts to hit this mark: the exhibition “Mathematics down to Earth” - an exhibition about cartography.

IC16 invited talk: Fast Prototyping of Interactive Mathematical Content - Jürgen Richter Gebert

Designing interactive content for mathematics exhibitions is a challenging task. Multiple aspects ranging from educational value via mathematical correctness to performance issues and user interface design have to be taken into account. The talk will illustrate the complete path from an idea of an exhibit to a fully functional interactive implementation in various scenarios. Special emphasis will be laid on aspects of user interaction and on high level implementation possibilities. Scenarios will be taken from interactive exhibits in big museums, teacher training courses, interactive web pages and apps. Mathematical topics will include swarm simulation, 3D polyhedral geometry, connections of art and science, as well as hybrid scenarios where virtual and real world meet. The talk will contain many life demos in the framework Cinderella/CindyJS and (at least partially) demonstrate the full workflow of designing an interactive exhibit.

IC16: Utilization of Mathematical Modle Collections For Multidisciplinary Research And Knowledge Transfer

Collections of mathematical models are a historical evidence for “notion” (comprehension by experience), they are a cultural heritage and in recent years appreciated as scientific sources. Since the models are often hidden in single Institutes, it is rewarding to make them accessible via online research. In DAMM (Digital Archive of Mathematical Models) we used the latent 3D-Web-technologies to compensate the lack of physical presence. This approach facilitates virtual cutting and the connection of material models with computer algebra systems.

IC16: The Self-Sustaining Domes By Leonardo (Extended Talk)

Hidden in a corner of the writings of Leonardo da Vinci, there are sketched two structures of self sustaining domes made from sticks without any clamping element. Rediscovered and studied by Rinus Roelofs, recently a work group from the MMACA Association has developed on this concept and designed 11 dif- ferent patterns. We are taking this activity to schools, museum workshops and street fairs. This activity is spectacular, attractive and adaptable to all ages, we can even work with groups of five year old.

IC16: Mathematics Outreach International

In November 2015, a group of 18 mathematics outreach specialists converged at the Banff International Research Station (BIRS) in Alberta, Canada, for an international math outreach workshop. The participants included academic faculty from both local and world-renowned institutes and universities, graduate students, program directors, journalists, and filmmakers. Coming from Australia, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, the United Kingdom and the United States. Throughout the workshop, participants discussed how sharing ideas could benefit the global outreach paradigm. They reached agreement on the need to develop an international networking infrastructure for outreach, and explored both the possibilities of expanding existing activities and creating new ones. The result was Mathematics Outreach International (MOI), a new international initiative to support the expansion and enrichment of outreach activities worldwide, especially those aimed at developing countries and traditionally under-represented groups. MOI will get advice from an international advisory board made up of prominent outreach leaders, launch a website containing resources and links to organizations, groups, and individuals coordinating national and international outreach activities, and contact the International Mathematical Union (IMU) to explore the possibility of becoming an IMU committee. In addition, MOI will organize workshops and conferences, and will propose them as satellite activities of international meetings of mathematical associations. MOI may also undertake other activities, such as the administration of an International Mathematics Outreach blog, a newsletter, or soliciting guidance from its advisory board on how to encourage policy

IC16: Visualizing Mathematics With 3D Printing: Augmenting A Traditional Book With New Media & Editing Spherical Video With Möbius (And Other) Transformations

I will talk about the development of a new popular mathematics book, coming out in September 2016. Most of the figures in the book are photographs of 3D printed objects. Readers can visit the book‘s website http://3dprintmath.com to explore virtual versions of the figures, download to print themselves or order online. This allows me to introduce topics which are not generally covered in popular mathematics books, presumably because of the difficulty of conveying truly 3D content. Then, I will speak on two further topics. First, the technology of spherical video, and how it differs as a medium from ordinary flat video. Second, some techniques for editing spherical video, using Möbius transformations and other conformal mappings of the Riemann sphere.

IC16: How To Bake Pi

Mathematics can be tasty! It’s a way of thinking, and not just about numbers. Through unexpectedly connected examples from music, juggling, and baking, I will show that maths can be made fun and intriguing for all, through hands-on activities, examples that everyone can relate to, and funny stories. I‘ll present surprisingly high-level mathematics, including some advanced abstract algebra usually only seen by math majors and graduate students. There will be a distinct emphasis on edible examples.

IC16:3D-Xplormath: More Than 300 Mathematical Objects, All With Animations And Explanations.

The Java version of the free visualization program 3D-XplorMath has long been part of IMAGINARY. I will demo the Pascal version (unfortunately still MacIntosh only) which now has explanations for all its objects. It is also richer in animations which deform the objects or add visualizations of the object‘s construction. All 3-dimensional objects can be shown in anaglyph stereo, red-green glasses will be provided. The program is intended for individual experimentation. Its development has mainly benefitted from demo-lectures to audiences ranging from school kids (13 years and up), students of my courses and colleagues at conference evenings.
