Each week we tell viewers what they can get for free. On this week's free list: 1) Museum of Mathematics 2) Tony Hawk Skates
What: Celebrate the spectacular world of mathematics with The Museum of Mathematics' FREE, PUBLIC Math Encounter's Presentation Series when NPR's "Math Guy," and Stanford University mathematician and award-winning author discusses "Fibonacci & the Golden Ratio: Exposed Common Myths & Fascinating Truths." The golden ratio is a fascinating number, but how much of what you read (or believe) is true and what are the common myths? NPR's "Math Guy" examines the evidence and separates fact from fiction. The audience is invited to participate in an interactive workshop following the presentation.

While the surfers stick to the Long Island shore for the Quiksilver Pro, skateboarding legend Tony Hawk's bringing his friends to Manhattan's concrete--or rather a huge half pipe set up along the Hudson. Fellow pros such as Kevin Staab, Jesse Fritsch and Mitchie Brusco among others will join Hawk to catch massive air.
Quiksilver Presents the Tony Hawk Vert Jam to officially kick off the Quiksilver Pro New York supported by Vitamin Water on Friday, September 2 with a massive halfpipe demo free to the public at Hudson River Park's Pier 54.
Then on Saturday, September 3, Tony and his Birdhouse crew will skate the street park at the Quiksilver Pro New York surf festival location in Long Beach, New York. These events will be the final stops for Tony's east coast summer tour, Quiksilver Presents the Birdhouse MIA to NYC Tour powered by Tech Deck.
