Add to plan Remove from plan



All Day

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.
