Counting Connections

Here's an innocent and well-known question: What is the maximum number of pieces of pizza you can get with n straight cuts?  Join visiting mathematician Paul Zeitz, University of San Francisco Professor of Mathematics and Co-Founder and Chairman of the Board of Proof School, in an investigation that starts with this question and then dives even deeper.  Ultimately, an imaginative reinterpretation of geometric counting leads to a truly mean-spirited multiple-choice question that may just be the 20th century's second-meanest math question ever.
