Senior Sessions:
"Skipping Towards Infinity"

Thursday, May 16
2:00 pm to 2:45 pm ET


Is it possible to add infinitely many things and end up with a single finite number?  Sometimes, but the arithmetic of infinity obeys its own strange rules.  Achilles and the Tortoise never quite mastered them!  Explore this classic paradox and other surprising results that arise when considering the mathematics of infinity.  For senior citizens / mature adults.

Materials needed: pencil, paper (at least 3 sheets of 8.5 x 11 paper), and calculator (optional).

This is a live-streamed event.  Occasional video recordings are made available for a fee at
