The Astounding Mathematics of Lines in Circles
Thursday, May 7 at 6:30 pm EDT (New York)
Join MoMath favorite James Tanton to explore a classic puzzle, presented wordlessly. One, of course, is meant to guess that the next number in the pattern below is 32, and then second-guess oneself and suspect not. (How many pieces do you actually get if you use lines to connect six dots placed on a circle?) Let's spend an hour playing, doodling, and exploring the astounding mathematics of drawing lines — straight or bendy — within circles. Just come with pencil, paper, and an open brain! All ages welcome.
