Today, February 7th 2018, is called e-day, because e is approximately 2.718, and this date is written 2/7/18 in some parts of the world. We prepared a toy-site listing the first 60.000 digits of e and help you find your birthday in it! We can even find your name within the digits of e, along with the complete works of William Shakespeare, the ending of Game of Thrones (spoiler alert), the full text of the Wikipedia from the year 2030 or what you’ll have tomorrow for breakfast…Read more
Best of IMAGINARY – all in one box! (German edition)
Just in time for Christmas, IMAGINARY is proud to present our latest product, the IMAGINARY-Entdeckerbox – a box that contains a fine selection of all things IMAGINARY (in German). It is a mix of both physical and electronic materials – 3D sculptures, posters, craft supplies, a Live-DVD with a cocktail of software and films, 3D-glasses … even a book with previously unedited material by Russian problem-solving superstar Vladimir Arnold! It contains all ingredients to make eyes and minds sparkle in Mathematics classes, friends of IMAGINARY or anyone interested to set up their own mini-IMAGINARY exhibition!
The Mathematics behind the different elements of the Entdeckerbox can be discovered playfully and interactively. They are designed with the intention to provide scope for experimentation and extension. All contents are, in the usual IMAGINARY tradition, open source and can be freely copied and passed on.
The Entdeckerbox can be ordered here. The no-profit price of 99 Euros includes shipment (in Germany). The 3d prints are supported by our partner trinckle.com. The Entdeckerbox project is made possible through support by the Klaus Tschira Stiftung in collaboration with the Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach. All printed and electronic materials are also freely accessible for download.
