Show Math will convince students and adults alike that mathematics is everywhere!

To prepare students to better understand the material being presented during Show Math, a free pedagogical kit for teachers, Show Math in the classroom, will be handed to schools welcoming the Show Math team. This is actually a collection of math activities to do before or after viewing the show that were made according to the Quebec's education reform. The creation of this educational tool was made possible thanks to the financial support of the Ministère du Développement économique, Innovation et Exportation (MDEIE).

Show Math 2 is now available. Built on the same canvas as Show Math 1, this new show introduces you to new topics that will tickle your brain for sure. Here some of the topics to be discussed:

- Cryptography
- GPS
- Fractals
- What the world would be like without numbers?
