A new exhibit is coming to the Scott Family Amazeum this month.
Math Moves! Experiencing Ratio and Proportion , a new exhibit featuring over 20 interactive experiences, is set to open to members and non-members of the Amazeum on Saturday, Jan. 29.
From the description of the new exhibit:
In Math Moves! visitors use their bodies and gestures to actively set up, measure, describe and compare ratios and proportions. Acting out math concepts is a powerful tool for exploring, questioning, and understanding math. Active learning builds connections that support solving math challenges. This exhibit encourages a collaborative approach to problem-solving with open-ended activities that are fun for the whole family.
Math Moves! connects ratio and proportion to daily life. Not only is an understanding of ratio and proportion important success in middle and high school math, but the concepts are constants in daily life. Adjusting ingredients for recipes, creating a family budget, building, and other measurable tasks involve ratio and proportion.
Amazeum members will get an early look at the new exhibit beginning at 9 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 29. Non-members can experience Math Moves beginning at noon that same day.
Components from Math Moves will remain on display indefinitely, officials said.
The exhibit will be available as part of the regular admission at the Amazeum.
