After the success of two public exhibitions in Kao-hsiung (Dec. 2015~ Feb. 2016) and Taipei (Mar. 2016~ May 2016), the IMAGINARY— Infinity and Beyond, held by TMS (the Mathematical Society of Taiwan), looked for local schools outside these two cities for small-scaled exhibitions so that more people can enjoy these wonderful mathematical arts during the period between June, 2016 and May 2017. So far, thirteen schools joined this project.

To promote the development of mathematics in various aspects, and to connect the beauty of mathematics with daily lives and arts, mathematics fans from all over the world make a lot of efforts. Among them, a project originated from Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach in Germany succeeded in introducing mathematics to the public by an exhibition, named “Imaginary”. Imaginary presented mathematics in many interesting ways such as math-related portraits, 3D statues, soft-wares and multi-medias. It has been well received by over two million of people from more than 150 cities in the world.

The Mathematical Society of the Republic of China (Taiwan), abbreviated as TMS, invites local math teachers in Taiwan to hold exhibitions in their own schools. During the period of the exhibition, teachers and students must hold camps, forums, or workshops for youths or adults in the local community. Our aim is to let students interested in mathematics learn about how to share the beauty and the fun of mathematics, to encourage young students to introduce mathematics to the public, and to promote a creative environment of learning mathematics. In total, thirteen schools joined this project. The events coming in the exhibition series in 2016 is listed below.
