“Can You Spot It?” June 3 at 6:30 PM
with Alex Kontorovich

Can you find the deep mathematics underlying a simple card game? Why would the New York Times devote a long article to a children’s game that doesn’t exist? Join Rutgers math professor Alex Kontorovich to find out as you explore an award-winning game of visual perception. Come for the fun, stay for the mystery, and learn about the surprising ways math shows up in the everyday world.
