Join us at our last Math Circles event of the year!
Who: Erick Lee (HRSB)
When: June 10, 2015, 5:30-7:30pm
Where: Chase Building Room 117, Dalhousie University
What: Schur's Problem of Sum-Free Partitions
Join us for some fun partitioning numbers. Most students in elementary school learn how to work out problems that involve large numbers by splitting them into smaller units so they're easier to work with. Counting the number of ways that a number can be partitioned however is a mathematically difficult problem that leads to lots of interesting questions. We'll take a look at a partitioning game as well as some recent mathematical discoveries in the area of partitioning.
If you are planning to attend, please RSVP to mathcircles @ dal.ca so that we know how much pizza to order!
