Emilie Clark, Math Talk-April 24, 2013

Continuation of the Tangram Lemma 1: If sixteen equal isosceles right triangles are combined into a convex polygon, then a rational side of one triangle does not lie along an irrational side of another. Lemma 2: If sixteen equal isosceles right triangles are combined...

Mary Floyd Math Talk 17 April 2013

My second presentation of this semester will not be a continuation of my first presentation. Instead I will focus on education in mathematics, specifically in the instruction of undergraduate college courses in abstract algebra. This topic is extremely relevant to all...

Shannon Wood Talk Part II April 17, 2013

In the second half of my talk, I will continue on the topic of the condensation method for evaluating determinants. In the first half, I introduced Jacobi’s theorem, on which this method is based. In this talk, I will go though an outline of the proof. The...
