Paul Zeitz End of Semester Colloquium: A Revamp of the Second Meanest Math Question in the 20th Century
  • Abstract: In 1999, a couple of mean-spirited math contest creators came up with a problem designed to trip up everyone. But it has a really fun solution that combines geometry, probability, combinatorics, and science fiction.
