"Faites vos jeux...", new statistics exhibition at Palais de la découverte
“Faites vos jeux! Quand les maths s’en mêlent” (Place your bets! When maths mingle) is the new probability and statistics exhibition at the Palais de la découverte (Paris, France), open until summer 2017.
The exhibition orbits around four topics: Probability, Large numbers and statistics, Chaos, and Applications. For each topic the visitors can interact with hands-on and virtual modules, such as find surprising results with dice, crack cryptographic messages, play wiht a double pendulum, or compose randomized music.
The exhibition was conceived by Mathematikum (Giessen, Gemany) and adapted by Universcience (Paris) and the Museum of sciences of Geneve (Switzerland). Two exhibits of IMAGINARY are also on display: the double pendulum and the circular mirrors flipper, part of the Cinderella suite.
