discover the mmaca modules

At MMACA we are constantly working to create and improve materials that allow us to experiment with mathematics. All our modules allow readings at different levels. We want all visitors to leave our exhibitions having lived a positive experience.

Modules of the museum by rooms

Discover the modules of each room of the permanent exhibition of Cornellà "Mathematical Experiences"

You can download the MMACA Module Catalogue (Completed in 2017) or see the modules of each of the rooms of the permanent exhibition "Mathematical Experiences" of Cornellà.

Lobby, shop and planet earth

Calculation and number of gold

Combinatorics, tiling and Leonardo bridge.

Optical illusions and mirrors

Geometry, curves, polyheders and inductive formulas

Space for the first years of primary school

More information about some modules

Through the web we want to facilitate the explanations, orientations, guides, readings, historical contexts, suggestions and questions of each module.  We are making material for each of the modules and, little by little, we will continue to expand this section. We encourage you to collaborate in this collection and documentation task.   Send us feedback, suggestions.


The curves that are obtained by rolling circumferences of different sizes.

The tables where using 4 mirrors we see all the important polyhedras.

Look at the sections of objects illuminated by the red LEDs of this ring.

It varies the angle of the mirrors and thus creates the different polygons.

Try putting the tetraeder and octahedre in the cube.

Two balls, one low in a straight line, the other curving. What's the point before?

Put the blue poles, perpendicular to the edges of the dodecaedre to build the icosaedre.

With all the pieces we build 3, 2 or 1 equilateral triangles

The artisanal wooden cone that shows its sections: Circumference, ellipse, parabola and hyperbola.

With the same pieces, it reconstructs two polygons.

Six boxes with interior mirrors that allow you to see a huge variety of mosaics.

The old known multiplication table, turned into sculpture.

A tiled tiles with tiles in the form of a lizard designed by the artist M. Escher.

Multiple ways to visualize and understand this famous theorem 

A non-periodic tiling.

Build polyhedras with magnetized pieces.

Build this bridge, without any support, devised by Leonardo

How do more cylinders fit?
In gridded mesh or in triangular mesh.

We raise these arches with pillows.

A surprising room where geometry makes things change in size.

Workshop where these self-sustaining structures are built.

How do the lengths, surfaces and volumes of similar objects change?

Strategy, combinatorics

Three rings to link them in a very special way.

Displaying numeric properties with buckets and other pieces.

It is necessary to move the tower by moving the discs one by one and always leaving the little ones on the grains.

Put the pieces so that the colors are not on the side. It is a version of the 4 color theorem.

Make as many different sets as possible got-spoon-knife. 

The puzzle of rebuilding the chessboard that seems difficult, but that the organization facilitates.

Put the skyscrapers taking into account how many you see from each position.

With the chain we take a tour that passes through all the vertices of the dodecaedre

Put the fences of the pens, the figures indicate the amount of fences around them.

Place the 16 pieces without either repeating colors or numbers in rows or columns.
