  • July Virtual Celebration of Mind (CoM)

    TODAY, Friday July 21, at 12 noon ET (16:00 UTC) Atlanta Local Time, we return for another Virtual Celebration of mind. The title of this months presentation is From Bourbaki to “Look-and-See” by Tom Edgar. This presentation will happen on Zoom Webinar. We’ll also meet in another Zoom Room, where everyone will be able to see eachother, right after this presentation.

  • G4G15 Registration is now Open

    From February 21st through 25th, 2024, in Atlanta, Georgia, G4G participants will gather, in Martin Gardner’s name, to celebrate recreational mathematics, magic, puzzles, skepticism, science, art, literature, and the intersections of these subjects. Countless exchanges of ideas and examples of magic will inspire and delight. Past attendees and nominated parts will have gotten an email.

    You are welcome to nominate new attendees for invitation to G4G15. Please let us know how your nominee will enrich the G4G community. Fill out the form once for each person being nominated, here.
  • G4G Weekly Socials

    Our weekly Socials are held on Sunday at 12 noon Atlanta time (check the time for you here).

    We are using the Zoom Meeting platform here (not Zoom Webinar as we do for our monthly CoM presentations on the 21st). So for these Sundays socials we will all be able to see each other.

    Upcoming Sessions:
    Sun 23 Jul – Tony Mann “A favourite from Gardner”
    We welcome theme suggestions for the G4G Weekend Socials. All information can be found here.
  • G4G Weekly Socials: New Recuring Theme

    This Sunday 23 of July Tony Mann will talk about “A favourite from Gardner”. In his words:

    I’ll talk about “The Tit-Tat-Toe Trick” from Gardner’s “Mathematics, Magic and Mystery”, when, when I read it as a student, struck me as a very remarkable mathematical magic trick (although I rarely manage to communicate that to my spectators when I perform it!).  This will expand (slightly) on a 5-minute online talk I gave at the MathsJam Gathering in 2020.
