The following video allows you to take a virtual tour through the NY Hall of Science in Queens, New York.
Mathematics has been called the 'Queen of the Science' for it’s intrinsic beauty and because it has mothered a host of other sciences. Traditionally, its branches have been arithmetic, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, statistics and logic.The progress of mathematics and devices for calculating and computing have been closely interrelated since the invention of the abacus. Today’s modern computers solve in seconds problems that would have taken mathematicians months or years just two decades ago. This exhibition helps communicate the scope of mathematics and the work mathematicians do. Charles and Ray Eames originally created this exhibit in the 1960’s for the IBM pavillion at the New York World’s Fair.
