The Power of Five: MoMath, the National Museum of Mathematics, recently celebrated guest number 555,555. Efrem Fisher (38), from Brooklyn visited MoMath with his family on Tuesday, September 6 in the early afternoon and was immediately greeted by the Museum staff to mark the historic occasion. MoMath showered Mr. Fisher and his family with five special gifts from Additions, the MoMath gift shop, free admission to MoMath for the next five months, plus a MoMath tee shirt.

Tuesday marked the first time that Mr. Fisher and his family visited MoMath and coincidentally, Fisher comes from a math family. His father is a math professor at Northwestern University and his mother is an award-winning PhD who is an advocate of women and minorities in mathematics.
