For my MAT 380 presentation this Wednesday, I will be talking about some basic background on how to play a Blackjack, what is it, and how can you win the gambling when you are playing the Blackjack. I will slightly touch on Set Theory, Formula, and some examples. I will also explain some basic methods of Blackjack while playing the games. Additionally, I will then explain how can a Card Counting help you guarantee your win.

Hey Pema, great slides man. Well thought out and it’s obvious that you did your research on the topic. I love learning about gambling and math behind gambling, so even though I’ve presented on this in the past, I was very interested to learn what you had to say. Your 380 is meant to be a learning experience to slowly build up to your 480 and by the way this looks you’re on the right path.

Great job on this presentation. The concept was easy to follow, and the material was presented in a fluid manner. Additionally, I thought the math written was concise and explained well. Overall, it was a fantastic 380 introductory presentation.

Hello! I found your presentation really interesting! I watched a movie about card counting once, and always wanted to know how it worked. Your presentation gave a great introduction into how card counting works, and how useful math can be in gambling. Nice job!

Great presentation Pema! I am interested in this topic so I have heard much about this before, but I thought you did an excellent job explaining it. It was easy to follow and the math was precise and well explained. Great job!

Great job on the presentation! I always think explaining phenomena like this in terms of set theory is conceptually interesting and easy to follow. Excellent first presentation!

This was a great presentation on an interesting topic! Also, I just wanted to say thank you for creating a video to go along with your presentation. Although we cannot be in class together it was nice to hear you walk through your presentation. I also appreciated that you included an example and walked through the example in your video as it made it very easy to follow along. Well done!

Great work, better keep me away from the casinos now. I suppose the real struggle here is finding out how many decks are in use—I imagine that casinos are pretty hush hush about the makeup of their deck and do anything they can to throw card counters off their trail. I’d be curious what strategies you would take if you knew that the dealer had six decks but removed two aces. Good work!

Hello Pema, good work with your presentation. You simplified the material and made the presentation easy to follow. I think it was a good idea that you did a video recording and presentation slides. I felt like I was in the class room listening to your presentation. Thank you for making me feel normal for a few moments. Even though I listened to Jake’s presentation last semester on this topic, it was still interesting. I think “The Blackjack and Card Counting,” topic is classic. Nice work!

Great work Pema! I always love finding out about how we can incorporate math into our daily lives without us even knowing it and you did a very nice job explaining one of those! Very nice!

Great presentation. I really enjoying presentations that show how math concepts can be applied to real life situations. Your slides were well organized and easy to follow along, even for someone who has never played blackjack.

Excellent first seminar presentation. Some pretty math, and well put together slides. You did a much better job using Latex than many of us did for our 380 presentations. Stuff like this is always fun to learn about. Great job.

Hello! I am excited to know how math concepts can be applied to real life situations. Actually, I I have never playing gambling but it makes me want to play it. Great job!
