2019 Festival: Mathematics for Human Flourishing (11:30am showing)
Saturday May 4, 2019 from 11:30am - 12:15pm ET
Some think of mathematics as cold, lifeless, and unemotional. But mathematics can be a hopeful vehicle for building virtue and helping people flourish, and the practice of mathematics can help people connect to their deeply human desires — to play, to seek truth, pursue beauty, to explore freedom, to build community. I will share what a prison inmate has taught me about doing mathematics well.
This presentation will be repeated from 2:00-2:45pm.
