"Farm to Table Math: Play with your food and learn!"
featuring Kathleen Kavanagh
Wednesday, October 4 at 7:00 pm
When you think about where your food comes from, how to prepare it, and why it tastes good, you probably don't think mathematics has much to do with it. Surprise! Join mathematician Kathleen Kavanagh — whose collaborations with farmers and passion for cooking led her to explore agriculture processes, cooking techniques, and food pairings — for a hands-on (and tasty!) exploration of the ways in which mathematics plays a role in what we eat.
Special introduction by Suzanne Weekes, Chief Executive Officer, Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM).
Math Encounters is MoMath's popular free public presentation series celebrating the spectacular world of mathematics, produced with support from Simons Foundation International.
