"A Single Straight Cut"
Friday, April 22 at 6:30 pm ET (New York)
Join Steven Strogatz on a mathematical adventure using just paper and a pair of scissors, and discover how you can cut squares, triangles, and other shapes out of the middle of a piece of paper using only a single cut along a straight line. Sounds impossible, right? But that's the magic of math! With the right clues from geometry and some fun-filled playing and experimenting, everyone — young and old — will discover just how far you can go with a single straight cut.
