How to Bake Pi:
An Edible Exploration of the Mathematics of Mathematics

Mathematics can be tasty!
It’s a way of thinking, and not just about numbers. Through unexpectedly connected examples from music, juggling, and baking, Dr. Eugenia Cheng will show that math can be made fun and intriguing for all. Join us for hands-on activities, examples that everyone can relate to, and funny stories. You’ll learn surprisingly high-level mathematics, including some advanced abstract algebra usually only seen by math majors and graduate students.

Join us for a reception with refreshments following the lecture in EMS Building, Room E495.

Sponsored by the Miriam and Morris Marden Fund, the Department of Mathematical Sciences, and the College of Letters & Science. For more information, contact math-staff@uwm.edu or (414) 229-4836.
