Virtual Reality Math Museum

This is the Virtual Reality museum, where tourists can walk through at any pace and explore the exhibits in any order. It is called virtual reality because tourists are not physically inside a museum. When touring, students are given a Rosetta stone, called the Plinth, that contains links to standard questions for each exhibit.

Students will explore who discovered the items in the exhibit, who did not discover them, how the items in the exhibit work, and why the exhibit is relevant to our modern world. Questions are asked using the Rosetta; online and in-class editions allow the course responses to be individually revealed when the student asks.

Each question or link may lead to dictionary terms, museum rooms that are still under construction, or worked examples; real assignment problems are not included in the classroom while the Museum is not being taught as a class.
