Conversations About Our Scholarly Lives

12:00 PM  - 1:00 PM
Monday Apr 1, 2019
suite 309, DeWitt Wallace Library

Joseph Benson, Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science, will present “Measurement of Earth: The continued importance and relevance of geometry."  All high school students in the United States take geometry, but for most of them, this is the last time they will ever seriously think about the subject. Using this as a starting point, I will demonstrate the developments of geometry through the centuries, and I will provide examples of its continued relevance in modern mathematics and science. All faculty are welcome. Lunch will be provided.
