Humans are born with imperfect mathematical intuition, to say the least, yet most decisions we make are based on “feel”, not calculation. At this talk you will be challenged by a dozen mind-boggling puzzles (some with solutions, some without) that are designed to help you keep your intuition from running off the rails.

There will be a informal dinner in the Aviation Room at 5:30 proceeding the talk; come join us !
