Mathemagics! Math in Digital Age


  • Presented By: WTAMU Distinguished Lecture Series
  • Dates: October 27, 2021
  • Location: Zoom
  • Dr. Arthur T. Benjamin will join WT virtually October 27th at 6 p.m. to
    inspire and engage students to have fun learning mathematics and business statistics. This event
    is free and requires registration.

    In his presentation, Dr. Benjamin will highlight that mathematics is fun, and that one should feel
    joy when applying mathematics in their courses and in their future careers. By learning about the
    value of mathematics in relation to the digital age and to careers, this event will challenge many
    students’ “negative bias” toward mathematics and learn that mathematics is fun and interesting.

    Dr. Arthur Benjamin is the Smallwood Family Professor of Mathematics at Harvey Mudd
    College. He has been repeatedly honored by the Mathematical Association of America for his
    teaching and writing and was recently selected by Princeton Review as one of The Best 300
    Professors in America. He is also a professional magician and one of the world's fastest mental
    calculators. In the year 2020, he applied his talents to the game of backgammon and was the
    winner of the American Backgammon Tour.
