A hyperbolic plane is a mathematical surface that has constant negative curvature-the opposite of a sphere, that has constant positive curvature. In this workshop you will crochet your own hyperbolic plane, even if you’ve never crocheted before. Our research shows that these models are a wonderful antidote to math anxiety.

A short introductory description will be given on ‘Divided Spheres: Spherical Design in STEAM.’ The workshop will focus on building connections between multiple disciplines through hands-on modeling making. The art forms used will come from inspirations chosen from mathematician and monk Father Magnus Wenninger’s lifelong explorations of polyhedron.
