Mathematical Snow Sculpture

Well, spring break is coming up, and many of you are probably thinking of beaches and swimsuits and suntans (not me), but in some places winter is still going strong. With snow. Real snow, not just an inch or two here and there.

Stan Wagon, a Professor of Mathematics and Computer Science at Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota, is using this snow to make mathematically themed snow sculptures. Take a look at some of the pictures; They are pretty cool. So to speak.

If winter is not your thing, you may prefer to make your mathematical sculptures out of Lego®.
