Mathematics Seminar looks at geometric figures

For the final Mathematics Seminar of 2017, instructor Alejandro Saldivar will discuss a seemingly simple topic from geometry that leads to intriguing examples and unexpected consequences: Given two figures with the same area, can we always cut one into pieces so the pieces can be reassembled to form the second figure?

The presentation is suitable to a wide range of students — no mathematics background is required! It runs 3-4 p.m. Dec. 6 in room 103 of Cook. Pop and cookies will be served at 2:45 p.m.
