The Goudreau Museum of Mathematics in Art and Science seeks to promote and encourage interest in mathematics for everyone, regardless of age or mathematical background.

                                     

Founded in 1980 by the late Bernard Goudreau, an engineer and mathematics teacher, the Math Museum has developed into a unique learning and resource center for adults students and teachers. Presently, it reaches more than 15,000 persons annually through workshops, programs, special events, and exhibitions.

                                      

The Math Museum offers you and your family an exciting opportunity to have fun while you gain an understanding of mathematical principles through the practical application of modeling and geometric simulation.

                           

When you visit the Math Museum, you can:

  • Build a math model
  • Explore games and puzzles
  • View exhibits demonstrating how math is used in the arts and sciences
  • Experience challenging but non-threatening specialized programs and workshops in math
  • Use our mathematics resource library
  • Buy unusual and colorful games, puzzles, books and more in our Museum Store

About the Nautilus Shell

The Math Museum's symbol, shown above, is the nautilus shell, which embodies what the ancient Greeks termed a "golden rectangle," one whose ratio of width to length is 1 to 1.6180. This constant underlies the logarithmic spiral found in the nautilus shell.
