Math Photo: Riemann Building

Published by patrick honner on

Something compelled me to photograph this building as I was strolling around one steamy afternoon.

And then I realized why:  it reminded me of a 3-dimensional Riemann sum!

I did not attempt to estimate its volume.

I’ll be using both of your images to show practical math connections in class this week. Thanks for pointing out math outside of the classroom walls.
