Games of Chance: A (Fun!) Study in Probability

Presented by: Bill Mandella, Mathematical Sciences

Fridays: March 4, 11, 18, 25 at 8pm
Sunday: March 13 at 2pm
Probability is an often-over-looked but essential part of our everyday lives. But let’s face it – we humans generally have pretty bad intuition when it comes to probability. However, that doesn’t mean we can’t have some fun learning about it! An effective way to improve our understanding of probability is through “game playing.” In this talk, we will explore many important probability concepts that naturally emerge in the process of determining the “fairness” of a game. Take a chance and join us.

Free and open to the public!
