Jaci Luisi: on random graphs…

The material that Jaci covered in her talk about graph theory was completely new to me, but I thought the way she presented it was very clear and also interesting and fun! I had heard of the six degrees of freedom but wasn’t quite sure of what it meant or how it worked. After learning about it, I would be very interested in taking graph theory in the future. The talk sparked my interest and I loved that we could see how connected two people were from each other. I recently learned that there is only 5 degrees of separation between Leonardo DiCaprio and myself!
