Coaster RollersRoll over the unusually shaped acorns and have a smooth ride due to their constant diameter. |
Pattern MeshRotate one pattern over another to create changing and surprising new patterns. |
||

Dynamic WallEnjoy a kinetic showcase as this moving, computer-controlled wall displays a wide variety of wave phenomena, combinatorial algorithms, and more. |
Pattern PantsDress yourself in a symmetrical pattern. |
||

Formula MorphBring formulas to life by exploring the multiple number of unusual three-dimensional surfaces they can create. |
PolypaintUse a paintbrush on the digital canvas to create intricate and colorful patterns that emerge from symmetry. |
||

Hoop CurvesTake a shot with math! Use visitor throw statistics and a robotic basketball-shooter to take your best shot in this regulation-size free throw space. |
Seeing MathObserve how math shows up in everyday scenes from the world around us. |
||

Hyper HyperboloidEnter the cylindrical chamber and spin in the chair, creating a curved surface made entirely out of straight lines. |
Shapes of SpaceFit together shapes on differently curved surfaces and observe the differences among them. |
||

Light GroovesChange the angle of the light to animate stunning stereographic images, created by precisely engraved reflective grooves in metal plates. |
Square-Wheeled TrikeTake a smooth ride on square wheels. |
||

MoMath Logo GeneratorManipulate mathematical symbols symmetrically to create a unique MoMath-style logo. |
String ProductLight up the line connecting two numbers on a special curve called a parabola, and see how it crosses the center pole exactly at the product of those two numbers. |
||

The MathenaeumApply a palette of operations to transform basic shapes into unique three-dimensional sculptures. |
Structure StudioMake some cool mathematical structures with these uncommon construction toys. |
||

Math FlashSee breaking news from the world of mathematics. |
Tracks of GalileoAdjust the track and find the fastest path down to the bottom. |
||

MotionscapeExplore the relationship between position, velocity, and acceleration with a full-body movement experience. |
Twisted ThruwayGet behind the wheel and enjoy a “driver’s eye” view while exploring the surfaces of a Möbius strip and a trefoil knot. |

3-D DoodleFit two-dimensional cross-sections together to create three-dimensional forms 3-D Doodle. |
Monkey AroundCount the monkeys, turn the handle, and count again — what happened? |
||

Synchronized SpinPress a button and watch the incredible strobing, spinning, mathematical sculpture “bloom” before your very eyes. |
Rhythms of LifePiece together fractions to fill circular disks, which you can play as musical rhythms using an unusual selection of sounds. |
||

Edge FXPut a small bias into the bounce of each ball, and watch as your profits plummet or soar. |
Robot SwarmInteract with dozens of small, glowing robots who react to your presence and one another, generating lifelike behavior from simple mathematical rules. |
||

Enigma CaféSit down and enjoy one of the many mathematical puzzles on the menu. |
Shape RangerArrange tile shapes inside various boundaries to try to set a MoMath record. |
||

Feedback FractalsMove the three cameras, zoom in and out, and apply different color filters to create an amazing variety of fractal patterns using a video feedback loop. |
Sixth SenseChoose six numbers and see how the machine predicted what their sum would be before the first number was even chosen. |
||

Finding FifteenUse simple arithmetic to find a winning strategy in this head-to-head game, then learn its hidden yet simple secret. |
Tessellation StationCreate tiling patterns called tessellations using unusual magnetic shapes. |
||

Harmony of the SpheresCreate a harmonic soundscape using this interactive musical sculpture, which takes its shape from the symmetries of the 12-tone musical scale. |
Tile FactoryBend and stretch the edges of polygons to create tessellating tiles. |
||

Human TreeSee successively smaller copies of yourself combined to make a dynamic fractal tree that sways in response to your motion. |
Time TablesPuzzle over Pythagoras, rotate a bird to explore geometric transformations, and decipher messages using a WWII-era encryption machine. |
||

In Plane SightUse cross-sections to figure out the shape of an invisible solid. |
Twist ’n’ RollTwist these shapes apart and change how they fit together to make dramatic changes in how they roll. |
||

Math SquareStep into the world of mathematical games, controlled by the movement of your feet. |
Wall of FireHighlight the sometimes-surprising cross-sections of different objects by using a plane of laser light to cut through their surfaces. |
||

Mind Over MeasureMove balls from one canister to another, or fill or empty canisters, as you try to solve a challenging range of classic water-pouring puzzles. |
Water FriezeRoll patterns across the wall to explore different symmetries. |
