Recording of Meet a Mathematician with Viktor Blåsjö

This is a recording of a live-streamed event that took place on Thursday, August 12, 2021.

Appropriate for all ages.

Did you ever wonder what a mathematician does all day?  Or what made someone decide to become a mathematician?  Or even, what a mathematician does for fun?  You may be surprised by some of the answers!  Join host Alex Kontorovich as we bring diverse and talented guests to the MoMath stage to share their experiences, their stories, and their love of mathematics.

This month, meet Professor Viktor Blåsjö of Utrecht University.  Viktor is a specialist in math history with a particular interest in how it can be used in the classroom.  He has recently written a fascinating text detailing the life and mathematical abilities of the great astronomer Galileo Galilei.

Hosted by MoMath’s 2020-2021 Distinguished Visiting Professor for the Public Dissemination of Mathematics and Rutgers Math Professor Alex Kontorovich.
