Today (Thursday, April 24th), around fifty Geometry students took a trip to the Museum of Math. The students explored the museum and all it had to offer including more than thirty interactive math exhibits. Some of the highlights included square-wheeled trikes where students took a more or less smooth ride on square wheels, an enigma café where students enjoyed numerous mathematical puzzles, a tessellation station where students created tiled patterns using magnetic shapes, twist 'n' roll where students took interesting shapes and figured out which path they followed, and much, much more. The trip was a lot of fun, and helped the students see how math is more than they think it is. They even had a session where they learned to encrypt and de-crypt messages using ciphers.
