No, we do not deny it. Mathematics is a difficult, complicated science that requires work and effort. These qualities are common to science, art or sport. But they are also attractive, interesting and very lively.

The “Animated Mathematics” exhibition will bring children, young people, and adults closer to theorems, propositions, identities, and even mathematical curiosities from entertainment, humor, art, or technology. The objective is to teach Mathematics, and to show that this teaching can be done from a humorous cartoon, a television program or from a print by a world-renowned artist.

“Animated Mathematics” is divided into thematic sections, differentiated by the nature of the works that are presented. Mathematical Cartoons shows creations with mathematical content by great national cartoonists and some foreigners such as Mingote, Forges, El Roto, or Alberto Montt. Cristóbal Vila is a 3D computer graphics artist whose videos have received unanimous recognition from the mathematical world. Math Proofs consists of visual and interactive proofs of the following mathematical results: the square of the sum, the cube of the sum, the Pythagorean theorem, and the least time descent curve problem, known as “brachistochrone”. Math Humor in Animation Series reflects 16 particular situations with mathematical content that have appeared in well-known cartoon series. Maurits Cornelis Escher (1898-1972) is a Dutch artist internationally recognized for his engravings (xylographic and mezzotint) and drawings of impossible figures, tessellations and imaginary worlds. In this exhibition, six of his most famous creations are explained mathematically. In Mathematical Sequences, 3 mathematical videos from well-known television series where Mathematics appears as a central element of the plot are provided.
