*Ruth Charney on Modeling with Cubes [Macromedia Flash Player]*
The Mathematical Association of America (MAA) continues to build on their
already solid online presence with the addition of this lecture by noted
mathematician and scholar Professor Ruth Charney. This particular lecture
was given at the MAA's Carriage House Conference Center in the fall of 2008
and it deals with how cubes can be used to represent a variety of systems.
As Charney notes, "The geometry of these spaces is strange, complicated, and
a lot of fun to study." Visitors to the site can watch several particularly
lucid examples from Charney's talk, read her biography, and also read a
detailed interview with her conducted by Michael Pearson.

To change something, build a new model that makes the
existing model obsolete."
