I’m substituting for a 9th- and 10th-grade math teacher, and she has a number of neat posters on her wall, ranging from the application of mathematics to robotics, to its role in black hole physics, to its cultural impact on the NBA.

The

Mathematical Momentsprogram promotes appreciation and understanding of the role mathematics plays in science, nature, technology, and human culture.

The AMS has many, many more online, many of which are accompanied by podcasts, shorter versions, and translations into a variety of languages. Pictured are:

- Making Art Work
- Adding a New Wrinkle
- Going Back to the Beginning
- Being Knotty
