Made in math at the museum MUSE

Discover the mathematics of the world!

What do they have in common, a volleyball, a swimsuit, a robot or the miniature of a train? Until June 26, 2016 this new temporary exhibition explains the powerful role of mathematics and its use in everyday life.

“MadeinMath” is dedicated to those who never loved formulas, numbers and calculations: visitors are invited to approach mathematics without fear, to discover it, while connected in the description and transformation of the reality that surrounds us.

Every area of ​​ life has a mathematical explanation. With mathematics we can do weather forecasts, we can design industrial prototypes, quantify the effects of human behavior or decipher the biochemical aspects of the emotions. Mathematics can be used in medicine, in the management of the Internet and traffic jams we meet in large cities. In economy it might be obvious to find mathematics, in sports however, less, even if here we rely on mathematical models to improve the performance of swimmers or of large racing boats, of the racing cars and even of the Italian National volleyball team.

Mathematics has inspired knowledge, being connected to arts, science and social studies.

In this respect, MadeinMath is a journey through history, embracing both the past and the challenges for the future of this discipline. Thanks to its attractiveness and the playful approach, the intention of the curators of this exhibition is to convince the most skeptic ones that mathematicians are far more useful to the world than we might imagine.

Multimedia, interactive exhibits and some past and contemporary great mathematicians virtually present in the exhibition, help visitors trace the evolution of mathematics from ancient times to present by understanding how much it influenced the history of men in every field
