The Mathematics Festival is proud to bring the IMAGINARY exhibition to add insights and multiply visions about mathematics. The Festival will happen from April 27 to April 30, 2017, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Admission is free.
Inspired by the cover of the book Gödel, Escher, Bach by Douglas Hofstadter, this is an interactive game to exercise three-dimensional thinking in an interdisciplinary work with English, Spanish, French and Portuguese languages. The game runs on smartphones, tablets and desktop computers.
In this game, the user must manipulate a virtual special solid and identify three letters of the alphabet. With these three letters, he or she must compose a word or an acronym in the chosen language. To assist him or her in the viewing process, coordinate axes and coordinate planes can be displayed in the software. In addition to the vocabulary exercise and the cognitive exercise of perception of three-dimensional forms, the software can also be used to address questions on symmetry (of the shape of letters) and counting (of the possible words for a given set of letters).
