ICE Workshop: Unsolved: Math + Design
Saturday, April 8 from 9:45 AM – 3:30 PM
Lamar Dodd Building Room S160
Unsolved: Math + Design is an interdisciplinary workshop for math, art, and design research, with the goal of making a product to be used in math outreach contexts. This workshop will engage the public in thinking about unsolved problems in mathematics, and participants will take part in problem solving to discover the intersection between math and design.
It will include three sessions: design, math, and synthesis. In the design session, participants will collaborate on drawings by using a conditional design method. In the math session, they will try to solve an unsolved math problem in a collaborative setting. In the synthesis session, they will design and build a final product by combining the two perspectives as they experience the process of shared problem solving.
