The Math Connections Theatre Lab

The Connections Theatre Laboratory is an investigative multiuse space housed in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics.

Math Connections was initially designed for hands-on experimental projects that help students gain an enhanced understanding of physical and mathematical modeling, and facilitate team-building skills as students work and innovate together. The space also was designed for development and live presentation of short productions that use experiments from science/engineering to motivate mathematics for small groups of calculus and pre-calculus students, providing a tangible connection to concrete applications that brings greater relevance to the mathematical theory.

The Connections Theatre Laboratory is the hub for the Mathematics Connections Theatre (MCT) team to meet, discuss, brainstorm, develop, test, script edit, rehearse, create (math, comedy, props, scenes, etc…) in preparation for each season’s Mathematics Connection Theatre production. This is a live sketch-comedy production culminating from the academic year collaboration between MCT math/science majors and JMU’s sketch comedy group, Maddy Night Live.
