Math with Bad Drawings
by Ben Orlin
Join MoMath's 2022–2023 Distinguished Visiting Professor Tim Chartier and author Ben Orlin for a discussion of Ben's Math with Bad Drawings, which reveals to us what math actually is; its myriad uses, its strange symbols, and the wild leaps of logic and faith that define the usually impenetrable work of the mathematician. Truth and knowledge come in multiple forms: colorful drawings, encouraging jokes, and the stories and insights of an empathetic teacher who believes that math should belong to everyone. Math with Bad Drawings is a life-changing book for the math-estranged and math-enamored alike.
This is an online-only event; all registrants will be participating remotely. Occasional video recordings are made available for a fee at videos.momath.org.
Participants should read Math with Bad Drawings ahead of the event.
