Professor Stewart’s Cabinet of Mathematical Curiosities
by Ian Stewart
Sunday, November 24, 5:30 pm
Professor Ian Stewart has spent years filling his cabinet with intriguing mathematical games, puzzles, stories, and factoids intended for the adventurous mind. Inside, you will find hidden gems of logic, geometry, and probability – like how to extract a cherry from a glass (harder than you think), a pop-up dodecahedron, and the real reason why you can’t divide anything by zero. You never know what enigmas you’ll find in the Stewart cabinet, but they’re sure to be clever, mind-expanding, and delightfully fun.
