The University of Findlay will celebrate the 25th annual Mathematics Day on Wednesday, March 14, with activities in the Alumni Memorial Union.
Doug Ensley, Ph.D., professor of mathematics at Shippensburg University, will present “Invariants Under Group Actions to Amaze Your Friends,” at 10 a.m. in the Multipurpose Room. Ensley will highlight card tricks that illustrate the mathematical ideas of permutations and invariance. Magicians often use these devices to find spectators’ cards in a seemingly chaotic deck.
Ensley will present “Permutations in Graph Puzzles” at 1 p.m. in the Multipurpose Room. Ensley will discuss fundamental ideas from group theory and graph theory in regards to a variety of puzzles.
