MATHSAMAZING w/ David Zucker | Derby

Wednesday, March 13, 2019

Math, not as an obstacle but as a doorway through which students can find a world that is fun, astonishing and inspirational. We invite our audience to dive into the sometimes intimidating subject of math with the same passion as they might a soccer or video game. It is, of course, funny. There are puppets, costumes, music and audience participation. We have gone digital in this production, adding multimedia to help clarify math. Among the many concepts MATHSAMAZING brings to life are:

Archimedes’ bathtub eureka moment on calculating the Volume of an irregular object

The Fibonacci Sequence
How to get rich on pennies a day with Geometric Progression
3,4,5 Triangles using the Amazing rope of 12 Knots
Math Riddles and Paradoxes
Thales discovers the Law of Proportion by measuring the shadow of the Great Pyramid
And a little Abbott and Costello on Multiplication and Division.
