Mathematics Day 2020
Tuesday, March 17
'Mathemagician' Dr. Arthur Benjamin to speak on campus
This year's event will feature nationally renowned mathematician Dr. Arthur Benjamin, also popularly known as the “Mathemagician," who has given a number of popular TED talks. Benjamin will speak in the Alumni Memorial Union's Multipurpose Room at 10 a.m. and at 1 p.m. The event will be free and open to the public.
Benjamin's goal is to teach math in interesting ways. He's the type of speaker that can make numbers dance. “There are three reasons we learn math: calculation, application, and inspiration," Benjamin said. “Yes, inspiration!" For more information about Findlay's Math Day event, contact Chandra Dinavahi, Ph.D., associate professor of Mathematics, at [email protected].
In his day job, he's a professor of math at Harvey Mudd College in Claremont, California. When he's not teaching, he's talking in front of a different audience, usually in a tuxedo performing high-speed mental calculations, memorizations, and a variety of astounding math stunts.
