Math for Everyone Series: Juggling Probabilities

 
April 07 5:00 - 6:00PM
EVENT TYPE: Have a Little Fun, Work Your Intellect LOCATION: 101 Jordan Hall

Faculty Host:

From the right perspective, everything is mathematical – even juggling. In this talk, Greg Warrington from the University of Vermont will describe how juggling relates to traditional mathematical fields such as graph theory and look at what happens when a person starts juggling randomly. In doing so, she’ll illustrate how these mathematical underpinnings can be useful even accomplished jugglers. There will be numerous live demonstrations with the juggling of 0 to 7 objects.
