If a stick is broken at two random points, what is the probability it will form a triangle? This question, called the broken stick problem, first appeared about 150 years ago in an examination at Cambridge University. It attracted the interest of 19th century French probabilists, and more recently was popularized by Martin Gardner. Learn about this classic problem and its applications in mathematics.

Come join us for this interactive talk from 2-3:30pm at UTD. SLC 2.303

A hexaflexagon (also called a kaleidocycle) is a folded geometric figure that can be “flexed” to expose many sides. We will examine Flexagons in general and explore in detail several of its variations. In particular, we will create our own paper hexaflexagons and explore the combinatorial properties that it has.

Please join us between 2-3:30pm in room 2.305 of the ECSS building on the campus of UTD for this exciting talk. Austin Marstaller, a mathematics major at UTD, will present the topic of Graph Theory. A graph consists of some points called vertices connected together by some lines called edges. Many interesting questions arise in graph coloring problems in which the edges and/or vertices are colored following some restrictions. In this talk, I will introduce graph theory and explore some interesting graph coloring problems such as representing Sudoku as a colored graph.

*****Important Notice*****

If you wish to sign up for the AMC 10A/12A (February 2nd) and/or the AMC 10B/12B (February 17th), registration will take place IN PERSON during this event. There is a $10 fee per student per test.
