Description:

The Illinois Geometry Lab (IGL) is a facility at the Mathematics Department focusing on mathematical visualization and community engagement.

At the lab, undergraduate students work closely with graduate students and postdocs on visualization projects set forth by faculty members, as well as to bring mathematics to the community through school visits and other activities.

The IGL follows in the footsteps of the Geometry Center at the University of Minnesota, which pioneered computer visualization in the 90's. They are associated with the Experimental Geometry Lab at the University of Maryland College Park, and with the Experimental Algebra and Geometry Lab at the University of Texas Pan American.

Public Engagement

The IGL is committed to public engagement and mathematical education. Their passion for mathematics extends beyond the walls of the classroom through community activities like Science at the Market, Leal Science Night, Champaign Urbana Schools Foundation Freshman Focus, and various open houses. IGL has a vested interest in the education of students in community schools. They organize classroom visits and field trips to the lab for students from preschool to high school.

If you are a teacher or program coordinator and would like your students to experience what over 500 students from over a dozen community schools, or you would like to the IGL to participate in a community event, then please contact the Illinois Geometry Lab (contact information on left).
