Recording of "Math Flash!  A New Look at an Old Problem" with Po-Shen Loh

This is a recording of a live-streamed event that took place on Monday, April 6.

Appropriate for ages 18 and up.

People have been solving quadratic equations for thousands of years, with millions (or perhaps even billions) of people using a memorized — but not necessarily understood — formula.  Join Po-Shen Loh, social entrepreneur, Carnegie Mellon math professor, and national coach of the USA International Mathematical Olympiad team, as he shares a simple alternative to rote memorization.  As recently described in The New York Times, a sequence of simple steps, components of which have been known for hundreds (or even thousands) of years, can be combined in a retrospectively obvious way, bringing clarity and beauty to the solution of these age-old problems.
