Eugenia Cheng - Featured speaker
Mathematician and author of "How to Bake Pi: An Edible Exploration of the Mathematics of Mathematics"

MATHEMATICS CAN BE TASTY!

It’s a way of thinking, and not just about numbers. Through unexpectedly connected examples from music, juggling, and baking, I will show that math can be made fun and intriguing for all, through hands-on activities, examples that everyone can relate to, and funny stories. I'll present surprisingly high-level mathematics, including some advanced abstract algebra usually only seen by math majors and graduate students. There will be a distinct emphasis on edible examples.

Registration is sold out!
