Then don’t miss Sudoku: Questions, Variations, and Research featuring Laura Taalman, Associate Professor of Mathematics at JMU, after school this Thursday in the auditorium (3:30-4:30). Professor Taalman’s research includes singular algebraic geometry, knot theory, and the mathematics of puzzles. She’s also the author of the book Color Sudoku. This event is sponsored by Mu Alpha Theta.
If you like puzzles and/or mathematics, consider checking out a puzzle or math book from the library to peruse over winter break. You’ll find the math books in about the middle of the bookcase on the wall behind the Ender’s Game book display. Even though they’d normally be on the bookcases nearer to fiction, the puzzle books are on the same bookcase as the math books – on the bottom shelf.
The library still has copies of Ender’s Game available for check out too. Drop by today!
