Math and Sustainability – Explore the connections.

In creating the Mathematics of Sustainability poster, we aimed to paint a picture of the balancing act of sustainability and suggest that sustainability is a complex system made up of many interconnected pieces. Click on an image in our interactive poster to see how that image connects with math, sustainability and the other images. We invite visitors to submit their own interpretations at the MAM 2013 blog.

Download and print an 8 1/2 x 11 version of the poster.
