Want to learn mathematical illustration, including CAM/CNC (controlling robots to cut wood) from me? Many other options including 3d modelling and storytelling. Apply for the @PCMI summer school on Illustrating Mathematics, July 19-23. #mathart #mtbos (we are the second week).
"The school is targeted both to graduate students and to mathematics community members from all backgrounds. So do apply if interested, but do not consider yourself a grad student. Math teachers are certainly welcome!"
