From famed “Shakespeare Guyz” David Zucker and Richard McElvain, comes a show about the wonder of discovery! This is math, not as an obstacle but as a doorway through which students can find a world that is fun, astonishing and inspirational. In this witty and surprise-filled theater piece in the tradition of Shakespeare Guyz and MythMasters, David and Richard invite their audience to dive into this sometimes intimidating subject as they might a soccer or video game. Using multi-media, puppetry, fun costumes, music and audience participation, they take students back through some of the great historical moments of mathematical discovery.
