IMAGINARY is a platform for open and interactive mathematics. It features a variety of content that can be used in schools, at home, in museums, at exhibitions or for events and media activities. The main contents of IMAGINARY are its interactive programs and its picture galleries. The platform allows an easy integration of new content, for example of additional mathematical subjects or exhibitions. One main goal of IMAGINARY is to enable you, the community, to participate and to get involved with your own ideas. The core idea is that exhibits are created within the community and exhibitions are organized independently. This concept and the platform grew from our initial IMAGINARY exhibition, which started in 2008 and has since then been shown in more than 140 cities all around the world. Its huge success and its growing community led to the creation of this platform! IMAGINARY is a non-profit organisation for interactive and open mathematics (IMAGINARY gGmbH). It was initiated at the Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach (MFO), an institute of the Leibniz Association. The MFO is a shareholder of IMAGINARY.

School Taskbook: From 5 to 15 | IMAGINARY

Download Arnold’s Book of Mathematical Problems.
It is availble in eight languages! Dutch is the most recent translation, it just arrived, thanks to Rik Biel!
(other available languages are: English, Russian, German, Spanish, Vietnamese, Italian and Turkish)

The booklet consists of 77 problems for the development of thinking culture, either selected or composed by the author. Most of them do not require any special knowledge beyond the general education.

To get a taste of it, look at problem Nr 3: A brick weighs one pound and half the brick. How many pounds does the brick weigh?

Covid19: Modelos, datos y estadísticas. ¿Qué nos pueden decir los datos (y qué no nos pueden decir)?

For Spanish speakers:
Confused by all the models and experts that try to predict the future of the COVID-19 pandemic? Marcelo Fiori, team member of IMAGINARY Uruguay, explains in this video in Spanish how mathematical models for epidemics are made, why the situation is very complex and models can't predict the future, and what models teach us instead.

En las últimas semanas vimos muchísimos números, gráficas, simulaciones, análisis de tendencias y hasta predicciones relacionadas al Covid-19. ¿Qué nos puede...

DMV Math Art Minisymposium 2020

Our friends and partners Milena Damrau and Martin Skrodzki are organizing a Minisymposium “Mathematics and Arts” as part of the annual meeting of the German Mathematical Society (Deutsche Mathematiker-Vereinigung (DMV)) in September this year. They are looking for presentations of artistic works and concepts that include a mathematical component and put a focus on making this underlying mathematics explicit. The utilized format or media can be very diverse. For example, the discussed work could be a short movie on soap films, a construction manual for Archimedean solids, or a lesson plan for teaching mathematics in the art of M.C. Escher. The official language of the minisymposium will be English and each talk will be given 20 minutes. Selected contributions will be published. Due to the situation concerning the spread of Covid-19 and current travel restrictions, presentations via Zoom (or similar) will be possible.

The minisymposium “Mathematics and Arts” will be part of the annual meeting of the German Mathematical Society in Chemnitz, Germany, 14.-17. September 2020. It aims to bring together researchers interested in the connection and collaboration of mathematics and arts.

We provide a leisurely introduction to l2-Betti numbers, which are topological invariants, by relating them to their much older cousins, Betti numbers. In the end we present an open research problem about l2-Betti numbers.

Our friend and partner Jürgen Richter-Gebert and his colleagues from Ix-quadrat at TU München created this cool online portal "Math for Kids":
http://math-for-kids.org
You can find ideas for activities, puzzles, games, recommendations for apps and websites, and short videos. All of these have something to do with mathematics. You can play around with them at home, making for an exciting, fun, challenging and creative experience.
It will grow a lot, so check it out frequently!

Mathematics is Everywhere

This is a video we created for the International Day of Mathematics 2020 using clips submitted by our worldwide audience.

The Mathematics is Everywhere Worldwide Video is a joint project of the Deutsche Mathematiker-Vereinigung (DMV) and IMAGINARY for the International Day of Mathematics and International Mathematical Union.

Huge thanks to the amazing amount of very creative people who participated showing us that Mathematics Is Everywhere indeed. We received a lot of videos and could not fit them all... but we'll publish more very soon!

In case you are not able to take part in one of the more than 1000 events worldwide, celebrate with us online! 🥳

Happy International Women's Day!
Entering the field of mathematics can be tough, and women often encounter specific obstacles. The exhibition "Women of Mathematics throughout Europe" by Sylvie Paycha and Noel Matoff offers a glimpse into the world of mathematics through the eyes of women mathematicians.
You can download the full exhibition (all panels in high resolution for printing) from the IMAGINARY platform here:

❤️ Happy Valentine's Day from IMAGINARY! ❤️
Follow the link and interact with the heart. You can also enter your own formulas and create new surfaces.
Be sure to share with your friends and loved ones❣️

...but there is a formula that produces an algebraic surface shaped like a heart. And you can tweak its parameters to match your feelings.

IMAGINARY - open mathematics

IMAGINARY creates and distributes interactive exhibits that communicate modern mathematics to the general public. As a non profit organization we promote mathematical education and knowledge worldwide by offering all content under an open license on our website imaginary.org. We empower people to organize local exhibitions and hence carry modern mathematics to every corner on earth. Our philosophy and international network of math enthusiasts help us to constantly develop our content, to produce new exhibits and to establish IMAGINARY as think tank for modern mathematics communication. Started as project at the Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach in 2008 and spun-off in 2016 with support of the Leibniz Association, we have inspired millions of visitors in more than 50 countries with our exhibits ever since.
