Math Encounters | Intuition Gone Awry (DVD)
Presented by Peter Winkler
Humans are not born with perfect mathematical intuition, yet we make most decisions based on “feel.” Expand your thinking as mathematician Peter Winkler uses mind-boggling puzzles to help you adjust your intuition when it’s about to run off the rails.
Presented by Peter Winkler, with a special introduction by Joel Spencer, Professor of Mathematics at the Courant Institute.
