Art in my eyes.
This is how we roll: riding trikes with uneven square wheels along a hyperbolic cosine surface.
The photo above is during my first visit to the Museum of Math way back in 2013. Math is and will always be my first love, and it’s something I dearly hold in my heart.
Kids could ride this trike with uneven square wheels and take it for a spin along this bumpy surface
Math is my first love. I have always been fascinated by the fact that every thing could be expressed and simplified into a mathematical expression. I find it funny, too, that the credit agreements and bond indentures I read and analyze everyday could be viewed as a series of If-Then statements – If X happens, then lenders could resort to either Y or Z.
Mathematics is everywhere; it is anything but boring. My professors in college would say that our classes were supposed to help develop our “mathematical maturity”. But the greatest and lasting learning that I got is the unique way of thinking objectively and deriving answers from considering all possible scenarios, relevant facts, and assumptions.
That’s why I was really stoked about the Museum of Mathematics, the only museum of its kind in the U.S. MoMath is sponsored by a number of companies such as Google – you’ll notice that the museum’s colors and logo are similar to that of Google’s. It’s nice to know that companies are investing on institutions like MoMath to increase the public’s appreciation for the discipline.
I thank my parents (my Dad, most especially) for shaping my love of mathematics and for letting me pursue my dreams.
