(Try to) solve a series of apparently simple and unrelated puzzles and uncover the mathematical elegance behind the solutions.
Follow me on Twitter, where I write about Python, APL, and maths.
The aim of this workshop is to have the audience play around with many deceptively simple puzzles they already know and have them realize that mathematics has a say on everything.
This workshop is suitable for people of any age and depending on how much time I get, I pick a set of puzzles and then I do the following:
The puzzles I end up picking are usually related to graph theory, but that is just because graphs can easily hide in plain sight. A problem I talk about very often is the problem of the seven bridges of Königsberg.
