For flights of fancy on Father's Day flit to the Baltimore Museum of Industry from noon to 5 p.m. Sunday. You can watch model airplanes fly, assemble your own, pretend to be a pilot or part of a flight crew, and you can compete for prizes in a paper airplane contest.

MATH YOU CAN PLAY WITH
Beyond Numbers, a new $1.3 million permanent exhibit at the Maryland Science Center about mathematics, opens to the public Sunday. This isn't just a static display, and neither is it the math you learned in school, in the words of D. D. Hilke, the center's exhibits director, who adds that "it is filled with puzzles, art, science, culture, nature and real-life applications."
The exhibit was created by George Washington University mathematicians and the Science Center staff with an $844,000 grant from the National Science Foundation and another $495,000 from IBM. Admission. Information: 545-5964.
