The mission of our organization is to improve the quality of mathematical education, enhance the transfer of mathematical thinking into other classes, and increase students’ ability to apply rigorous mathematics outside the classroom. Our primary tool for carrying out this mission is “math machines”—simple devices which give an immediate, physical, dynamic expression to “abstract” mathematical equations. FIRST TIME HERE? You might want to read the rationale behind this project and view photos and evaluations from past workshops.

What's New? 

June 5, 2019
Join us in Provo, Utah for the AAPT Summer Meeting. We have a contributed paper, CF03, scheduled for Monday, July 22 at 5:35 pm. So far as we know, this will be your only opportunity at the conference to learn about the significant earthquake hazard in Provo. We will also be at our poster (PST1B04) on Monday from 9:15 to 10:00 pm with an opportunity for you to obtain quantitative data about the seismic hazard at your school. Also check out our YouTube channel with videos from our book, The Physics of Destructive Earthquakes.
