Math Alive

With all the controversy over Common Core and the math skills of our children, MathAlive! offers families an opportunity to actually learn and enjoy math because it makes sense!

This nationally-presented exhibit presented by Raytheon, in association with MathMovesU, is organized by Evergreen Exhibitions and is traveling around the country.

MathAlive Really Brings Math to Life

Kids may frown at the idea of doing anything related to math as “fun” but MathAlive teaches through live action. For instance, who would think riding in a live-action 3-D snowboard race has anything to do with math? But it does.

Other activities include controlling a Mars rover, and a chance to design and play your own video game.

The MathAlive! exhibit incorporates 40 unique, interactive experiences designed to transform math into fascinating applications as they are related to the worlds of design, engineering, technology and science. In all, the exhibit includes six themed main galleries which take up more than 5,000 square feet of space.

  • Outdoor Action: Adventure Sports
  • Build Your World: Environment
  • Future Style: Style and Design
  • Kickin’ It: Entertainment
  • Game Plan: Video Games and Other Games
  • Robotics and Space
