"What Can Puzzles Do for Us?"
with Peter Winkler

Special introduction by Jim and Marilyn Simons

Mathematical puzzles can challenge, entertain, befuddle, intrigue, and inspire.  They can help us think outside the box and keep our minds sharp.  But a great puzzle can also open our eyes to a gem of mathematics or a flaw in our intuition.  Join us to learn about some eye-opening puzzles as we officially welcome Dr. Peter Winkler as MoMath’s 2019-2020 Distinguished Visiting Professor for the Public Dissemination of Mathematics.

Tickets are available online via the registration link below.
