Cindy Lawrence, the director of the National Museum of Mathematics, in New York, put on her special Möbius-strip earrings when she was getting ready for a recent evening of math dinner theatre. The star of the show would be Peter Winkler, a Dartmouth mathematics professor and formerly MoMath’s Distinguished Visiting Professor of Public Engagement. Winkler has been leading his intimate “Probability and Intuition” sessions (as the dinner theatre is called) since 2019.
