    Bead Geometry, Family Fridays at MoMath presented by Time Warner Cable

    At the National Museum of Mathematics (MoMath)

    Friday, November 7, 6:30 p.m.

    Where is the math in beadwork?  A bead is anything with a hole – its hole is just a cylinder, and the axis of that cylinder is a line segment.  So, a bead is just a line segment with colorful stuff around it, and those line segments can build geometric structures. During this workshop, mathematical artist Gwen Fisher will pull guests into her world of beaded cubes and cuboctahedrons.  This presentation is part of Time Warner Cable’s Connect a Million Minds campaign.

    Free admission; registration required. Best enjoyed by those age 7 and over.
