Grant Spotlight: Guest Speaker Chris Hanusa

February 15, 2018 / Catherine Nicholas / Spotlight - Grants

In February, math professor and mathematical artist Chris Hanusa visited MLWGS, where he worked with students in the Math & Art Seminar, Discrete Math classes, and the Multivariable Calculus class, where he held a Mathematica & 3D Printing workshop.  He also gave a presentation entitled “Using Random Numbers to Create Art” to more than 30 students in the Forum after school.  Professor Hanusa’s work at the intersection of two disciplines allows him to program computers to generate 2D and 3D art using random numbers.  MLWGS math teacher Lynn Reed coordinated Professor Hanusa’s visit.  The Foundation covered Professor Hanusa’s travel costs, as he came down to Richmond from his home in New York. Mu Alpha Theta paid his $200 honorarium out of funds they raise through Pi Day pie sales.  Help us keep offering unique educational experiences like these by donating to the 2017-18 Annual Fund.
