Pizza and Problem Solving Returns!

Posted on September 25th, 2019 by

Pizza and Problem Solving will resume on Friday September 27.

Come and help solve interesting, challenging, and just plain fun math problems and puzzles. Sometimes we even play games with some math content. You don’t need to have any particular background in math to join, i.e. you do not need to be a math major. We have many problems/puzzles to fit all kinds of skill levels and interests. 

Time: 3:00-4:30 on Fri, 9/27
Place: Olin Hall, Room 321

Here is a teaser problem. We put all four of our squares (of identical size) in a 2-dimensional dryer. When the dryer stopped spinning, it looked like the above picture.  What fraction of the large square is covered by the four shaded squares?
