SCC Episode 44: The Museum of Math


For this episode Samuel Hansen spoke with the people behind the Museum of Mathematics right before the February 2012 Math Encounter talk by Jeff Weeks about the Shape of Space. He spoke with the Chief of Operations Cindy Lawrence, Executive Director Glen Whitney, Chief of Design Tim Nissen, and Chief of Content George Hart about the what, the how, and the when of the soon to be opening museum. Be sure to check out the Museum of Mathematics at their website, register to attend a Math Encounter, and follow them on twitter. Not only that, here is a link to the great web games that Jeff Weeks used during his talk. Practice up and you might be able to best me in a game of Tic-Tac-Toe on a klein bottle.

    Mr. Hansen,

    I have been having trouble downloading the audio files of your podcast. Is this a temporary failure? Or can I ask you for some of the files?

      I am aware that some of the download links on the old podcasts are out of date, and I will be taking care of that in the near future but I am traveling right now and do not have the ability to fix them easily. In order to get any of the podcasts though, all you need to do is to click on the subscribe to RSS links on the right hand side of the website. There will be links there to download any individual episodes.

      If that still does not work send me an email and I can send you the links.

    Mr. Hansen,

    Thank you very much! That worked fine.

    I also would like to suggest you to interview Dr. Guerino Mazzola and Dr. Dmitri Tymoczko in future episodes of SCC.
