Event Details

Dr. Colm Mulcahy will be giving this talk to the members of Drexel University’s Mathematics Student Organization. The duration of this talk will be 1 hour.

“Martin Gardner, The Best Friend Mathematics Ever Had, was best known for his 300 “Mathematical Games” columns in Scientific American, in which he introduced thousands of budding mathematicians to elegant problems and magical items which still lead to “Aha!” moments today. He sometimes asked simple questions that inspired serious research, and some of those questions remain unanswered today. In his centennial year we’ll survey what he achieved and the legacy he leaves behind.”
