Take the ride of your life in the MathZone!

There's a new amusement park in town. Come on in–and find out all the exciting ways you can have fun with math in everyday life. Wander through the fractal forest, take a ride on the Möbius-strip roller coaster, and get dizzy learning about how math makes the Tilt-A-Whirl possible. The more activities you try, the more you'll learn how cool it can be to see the world through the eyes of a mathematician.

Once you've sampled some of the interesting and unique projects in Math Trek, from untangling unknots to winning games with weird dice to figuring out secret codes, you'll see that every trip to the MathZone is an exciting adventure!
