Tween Primes, the MoMath book club for tweens and teens

Tweens and teens, join MoMath at Tween Primes to discuss The Numbers Behind NUMB3RS: Solving Crime with Mathematics by Keith J. Devlin and Gary Lorden

Using the popular CBS prime-time TV crime series NUMB3RS as a springboard, Keith Devlin (known to millions of NPR listeners as the Math Guy) and Gary Lorden (the principal math advisor to NUMB3RS) explain real-life mathematical techniques used by the FBI and other law enforcement agencies to catch and convict criminals.  From forensics to counterterrorism, the Riemann hypothesis to image enhancement, solving murders to beating casinos, Devlin and Lorden present compelling cases that illustrate how advanced mathematics can be used in state-of-the-art criminal investigations.  Special guests actor David Krumholtz, who played math genius Charlie Eppes on NUMB3RS, and Ed Pegg Jr., math advisor for the series, will be joining us to participate in this discussion.

For this special event, parents may accompany their children; all attendees, including parents, must register.  Adults without children will not be permitted to attend (and will not receive a refund).  MoMath plans to repeat this event in Volumes, the MoMath book club (for adults) in the coming months.

Copies of The Numbers Behind NUMB3RS will be available for sale at Additions, the shop at MoMath, while supplies last. 

Join the fun on Sunday, May 5, at 5:30 pm.
