Peddie School, an independent, coeducational boarding and day school for grades 9-12 and postgraduate located in Hightstown, NJ, has developed an exciting Interactive Math Night event for exploring the intersection of mathematics and art. This is an evening designed to make math more accessible and give Peddie’s math students an opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge.
Rutgers Computer Science Professor Bahman Kalantari has played a key role in the development of Math Night. The creator of Polynomiography – the art and science of visualizing polynomials - he has been visiting the Peddie School campus for two years, giving talks and meeting with students.
Professor Kalantari was interviewed by a Peddie School student on the topic of polynomiography. Below are short excerpts from the interview:
