Title: 2010 Found Math Gallery
Url: http://www.maa.org/FoundMath/FMgallery10.html
Publisher: Mathematical Association of America
Description: The good folks at the Mathematical Association of America (MAA) are always on the lookout for mathematical principles in the least likely of places, and this gallery of "found math" is a tribute to their perspicacity. The exhibition includes prizewinners from the Joint Mathematics Meetings Exhibition of Mathematical Art and a weekly "found math" object. Visitors can make their way through items like simplex lamp shades over a bar in Venice and a butterfly in South American that appears to have an "88" on its wing. A number of the objects have more extensive explanations of their various mathematical nuances, and a few of the more recent additions lead to posters that can be downloaded for use in the classroom.
