Math Uses Your Whole Brain

This bright, colorful poster speaks directly to the reality that doing mathematics draws on all our capabilities: our intellect, our focus, our imagination, and our creativity.
The pernicious myth that people are left-brained or right-brained—although long-discredited—is still widely believed and hampers many in their study of mathematics. This poster illustrates beautifully the ways in which the entire brain is exercised by mathematics. On the left are the "left-brain" capacities commonly associated with procedural knowledge; on the right are the "non-logical" capacities that are just as central to doing math. The brain-like image at the center is a phase portrait of the first ten terms of the Lambert series, with the equation for the series written beneath; its nested symmetries and unity-in-duality symbolize the holistic nature of the human intelligence.
This poster measures 18 by 24 inches and is printed on 120lb gloss stock with an aqueous coating for beauty and durability.
