Mom, what do I need math for? Math is boring, math is hard,…Let’s face it, math has gotten a bad rap. It’s rarely ever been called beautiful or exciting or even cool…until now. The Museum of Mathematics or ‘MoMath’ is opening in New York City next year and by all calculations, it’s expected to draw visitors to its exhibits in the tens of thousands. It’s so cool – even Google has a stake in it. MoMath’s mission? To make math come alive through colorful, interactive exhibits of shapes, sounds and light. And according to the museum’s visionary, there are some big surprises throughout the exhibits.
