Can you imagine modern mathematical content integrated into a shopping center?
Together with mathematicians and artists from all over the world—precisely from 14 countries—IMAGINARY created a unique composition of art gallery, shopping center and science center. The aim of the mathematical installations at the Mathematikon shops is to encourage people to think about mathematics during everyday errands, to amaze and to activate thoughtprovoking impulses. We want to reach mathematicians as well as people with little or no contact to mathematics and provide a special shopping experience for kids and adults alike.
Math to Touch
Math to Touch is a collection of 16 small apps, each of them opening a little mathematical world to be explored.
The collection contains topics such as: math and music, symmetry, fractals, solids in space, relations of math to physics and symmetry, chaos, puzzle games and many more.
All apps developed with CindyJS, an open source framework for interactive mathematical applications.
Math to touch is built through the integration of two software packages:
- CindyJS Apps (the apps themselves, ready to run in browsers)
- AppLauncher Mark II (IMAGINARY’s web-based application launcher)
