Math Lab February 2023
Tuesday February 21, 2023

969 Queen Street West
In order to truly engage with math, students must be furnished with opportunities to connect it to something meaningful to them. Concentration cannot be forced but it can be directed toward a point of interest where it will be actively seized by the student. Whether the seed of the idea is a soccer ball, a found object, a building in Singapore or a sound wave doesn’t really matter. The guide’s role is to stand by, equipped to journey student enquiry and facilitate their ability to sink deeply into the work.
Math Lab is the artistic manifestation of studies in math and geometry featuring mod diagrams, building models, vellum curtains made of massing arithmetic, a tessellation wall, a giant origami truncated icosahedron, resin casts, and a monster long division that spills down one wall of the gallery and across the floor.
Student ambassadors will be on hand to give tours, show you the work they do here and talk about the experience of being part of The Lyceum.
With deep gratitude to my incredible co-teachers, each of whom brings a rich and diverse body of experience, with massive enthusiasm, through the doors each and every time: Riz, Sam and Quincy.
