Session leader: Emily McCullough
Session topic: The Hidden Algebra, Geometry and Combinatorics Behind Perfect Shuffles

Session Abstract:
Algebra is the study of number systems, their operations and structures; Geometry is the study of figures in space and the relationships between them; Combinatorics is the study of the enumeration of sets of elements. How are these three fields of mathematics related to Perfect Shuffles — the interlacing of an even number of cards after a perfect cut? Join us to find out!

About the leader:
Emily is an East Bay native. She has always loved learning and playing sports and continues to seek out both. Emily’s background is math and math education. She holds a BA and an MA in pure mathematics from San Francisco State University and additionally received a math secondary education teaching credential from that institution. Emily has taught mathematics in many settings including high schools, universities and the Art of Problem Solving’s online school. But Emily is most at home in the Math Circle community where she can fully embrace her dual-identity as mathematician-math educator.

Morgan Hill Math Teachers' Circle on Wednesday, November 20, 2019 @ Morgan Hill Community and Cultural Center | Morgan Hill | California | United States

Please join us at the Morgan Hill Math Teachers’ Circle on Wednesday, November 20, 2019, from 5:30 – 8:00 pm, for dinner and problem solving! Dr. Brian Conrey, Director of AIM, will be leading an exploration of the JRMF activity Puppies & Kittens. We will learn how to play this game popularized by Paul Zeitz, and discover some good strategies that lead to connections with the Fibonacci numbers.

Eat dinner, mingle and socialize with fellow math teachers starting at 5:30. The workshop will begin at 6:00.

If you would like to attend, please RSVP at: https://form.jotform.com/93094896222970

Please join us as Joshua Zucker leads us through an exploration of spirolaterals!

Spirolaterals are a simple yet deep mathematical doodle, most recently popularized in Anna Weltman’s marvelous This Is Not A Math Book. We’ll go round and round and generate new questions as we proceed. We’ll start with the usual quad-based ones and maybe explore some triangle or hexagonal variations too!

Joshua has been leading math circles since 1998 and is part of the team that began the math teachers’ circle program in 2006. In recent years he has run the Big Sur marathon and been a member of team USA at the world sudoku championships.
