Tuesday, March 7 at 6:30 pm


It’s March and time for the Madness of the NCAA Division 1 men’s and women’s basketball tournaments.  Millions of fans are looking for tips on bracket-making as they try to predict the winning teams!  Come and learn how to use mathematics and develop your own bracket-making method in MATLAB, an application that helps mathematicians, scientists, and engineers analyze data, develop algorithms, and create mathematical models.  Learn how math can help tame the Madness of March!

Hosted by Dr. Tim Chartier, MoMath’s Distinguished Visiting Professor for the Public Dissemination of Mathematics, and featuring special guest, Dr. Wesley Hamilton of MathWorks, the company that makes MATLAB.

Participants will be working with the MATLAB application.  Any registrants who do not have already access to the MATLAB application will be provided with a complimentary, temporary workshop license for their use during this event. 

This online session is appropriate for adults and students in middle school and up.
