People Doing Math Live!: Grids

After sold out shows at The Public Theater’s Under the Radar Festival, Strand Bookstore, and most recently The National Museum of Mathematics, People Doing Math Live! comes to the Sheen Center for Thought and Culture for two very special performances. People Doing Math Live! is the live component of People Doing Math, a serialized podcast about math, art and everyday life. An irreverent mash-up of Mathletics and RadioLab, People Doing Math Live! is an unabashed celebration of the beauty, uncertainty, and wonder of exploring a world expressed in numbers.

This episode will focus on GRIDS: how has this simple structure contributed to breakthroughs in mathematics, computer programming and music composition? Hosts Andrew Scoville, Joe Drymala, and Dave Tennent record an unabridged episode while interacting with a live studio audience. The show often features dunce caps, libations, special guests, daring feats of math, music and new radio drama by Jalcyn Backhaus. Special guest Nick Rauh, Chief of Mathematics from America's only museum of math (momath.org), joins us to keep the math on track!
