Last week, we had a wonderful talk about Pick's theorem by Connor Simpson. For more info, or just to read a bit about Pick's theorem and how it appears in various areas of math, check out this article from the Institute of Mathematics & its Applications.


We were so happy to see so many of you who came.


We look forward to seeing you all again on March 1st for a talk by Colin Crowley.


Shout out to Liam for their solution to our egg-dropping stumper!
