2018 Community Math Night
The eighth annual Manhattan Country School Community Math Night, an event where MCS families can experience the wonders and challenges of mathematics together, was themed around our school building, with all its interesting and sometimes puzzling features. Visitors could go on a scavenger hunt, searching our shared spaces for all kinds of unique shapes, including an irregular dodecahedron (that is, a 12-sided polygon where all the sides are not equal), tessellating diamonds and odd combinations of circles, rectangles and triangles that form light switches, radiator covers and towel dispensers.  Read more
