The Samuel Huntington Math Museum located off the Multicultural Wing on the fourth floor of P.S. 40 Q. features artwork in the style of artists who's work centers on math: M.C. Escher, one of his paintings was correlated to an article on Chisen Bop, a Korean system of place value, Thomas Parker Williams, and Crockett Johnson (we knew he wrote "Harold And The Purple Crayon" but we didn't know he was an artist too!). Student Poems accompanied the artwork (some of them with a focus on math themes). There is also artwork accompanied by math pieces created by students after reading Greg Tang's "Math-terpieces" (we try to integrate math with literature at every available opportunity).
