|Title:||Mathematical Puzzles that S-t-r-e-t-c-h Your Intuition|
|Speaker:||Peter Winkler, Dartmouth College|
|Humans are not born with perfect mathematical intuition, to say the least, yet most decisions we make are based on "feel", not calculation. Today you will hear some mind-boggling puzzles (some with solutions, some without) that are designed to help you adjust your intuition when it's about to run off the rails.|
