This is the first interactive exhibition devoted to math. Designed by world-renowned designers Charles and Ray Eames, Mathematica displays the range of mathematics, and share the excitement that mathematicians find in pursuing their science. Mathematica includes six interactive units covering: celestial mechanics, the Moebius band, minimal surfaces, projective geometry, probability, topology and multiplication.

In Mathematica, visitors can witness spontaneous formations of an in-the-flesh bell curve, as hundreds of plastic balls fall through a maze of 200 pegs into a series of slots, invariably forming the same pattern. Other features include an Image Wall of mathematical visualizations, a History Wall that documents the evolution of mathematics (mainly Western) since 1100 A.D., and other interactive exhibits.
