A maths school trip to New York will help to demonstrate to your students the importance of maths in the global economy!
New York is an incredible city and a global leader in business and finance. The city plays host to a number of influential organisations, such as the Federal Reserve Bank and Macy’s, the world-famous department store. Your students will have the opportunity to explore the staggering figures involved in financial transactions carried out in the city.
They’ll also examine the relevant principles of mathematics and how they are applied in the business world. And, for even more opportunities to learn outside the classroom, make sure you include a visit to the Museum of Mathematics, with its exciting, interactive exhibits! Thinking of making your trip cross-curricular? You could team up with almost any department but this trip would work particularly well as a collaboration between the maths and business studies departments.
Explore the Museum of Mathematics!
This fantastic museum is specifically designed to get people excited about maths and the way the subject illuminates patterns in our world.
The only museum dedicated to mathematics in North America, MoMath was founded in response to the closing of a much smaller mathematics museum on Long Island in 2006 - the Goodreau Museum.
This interactive museum will immerse your students in maths almost without them realising it. It’s the perfect choice of visit for a maths school trip designed to show your students the ‘real world’ application of the subject.
Did you know?
One of the most popular exhibits is the Square Wheeled Trike exhibit, where said trikes almost miraculously glide smoothly over a bumpy track, as the length of each side of the square wheels are equal to the length of the arc for each bump.
Visit the Museum of American Finance!
Learn all about the financial history of the USA at the Museum of American Finance!
Housed in the former headquarters of The Bank of New York, this is America’s only independent museum dedicated to finance and financial history.
The museum’s collection consists of documents and artefacts related to money, banking and the financial markets and includes items such as stocks, bonds, bank notes and checks.
Did you know?
The museum was founded in response to the stock market crash of 1987 to help improve education around the subject, provide historical perspective and ensure the same mistakes weren’t repeated in the future.
Take a tour of the Financial District!
This walking tour focuses on the birth of New York City and its establishment as a globally important finance centre.
The Financial District is where the city of New York was born in 1624 and also overlaps the New Amsterdam settlement, making this the oldest part of the city.
It’s now the beating heart of the American economy – as well as Wall Street, the world’s largest stock exchange (by total market capitalisation) and the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, the area was also home to the World Trade Center and now its successor, the One World Trade Center.
Did you know?
The One World Trade Center is not only the tallest building in New York – it’s the tallest in the Western Hemisphere! It’s 1,776 feet high – a nod to the year in which the United States Declaration of Independence was signed.
