Focusing on twenty influential mathematicians alive today, the exhibition features large-format black and white portraits, taken by the photographer Marc Atkins. Alongside each of the portraits, a text-based display panel conveys the subject's research interests and personal viewpoint on mathematics. A video loop shows the subject in conversation about their research and other mathematical ideas. "Faces of Mathematics" at Heriot Watt University, Edinburgh, is funded by a "Partnership in Public Understanding Award" from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council. -|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|-\-/-|- HANDS-ON MATH ACTIVITIES FOR GRADES 4-6 http://mathcentral.uregina.ca/RR/database/RR.09.99/sawatzky1/ The activities were designed by Wendy Sawatzky for a grade 5 class, but are adaptable for grades 4 or 6.
