|11:10 am Dec 11th||Science Interest Group lecture: Balls and Donuts and Butterflies! Oh My! West Science|
Prof. Jim Freeman from the Department of Mathematics & Statistics will speak. In the movie "The Wizard of OZ," Dorothy , the Scarecrow, and the Tin Woodsman chant "Lions and Tigers and Bears! Oh My!" to give themselves courage as they pass through the forest. Similarly in mathematics people are often intimidated by the fear of what they expect will be difficult mathematics. As with Dorothy and gang meeting the Cowardly Lion, our expectations rarely agree with the reality. In this talk, we will see how effective it can be to look carefully at simple, non-intimidating ideas to discover deep mathematical ideas. We will see what we can discover about balls, donuts, and "butterflies" by investigating how three pieces of paper interact. As this talk will get into some deep mathematical ideas that everyone in the audience will understand, the speaker expects to be asked questions for which he does not yet know the answer. So bring your inquisitive mind and enjoy a trip through the mathematical forest inhabited by balls, donuts and "butterflies."
