An MCSP Conversation Series Talk: "Mathematics in Board Games: Making Better Decisions"

Come hear our very own Dave Taylor of the MCSP department talk about ways that you can play better and best your friends in board games :-). Abstract: "Mathematics plays an ever-increasing role in today�s world, whether it be modeling complex processes in the body, predicting winners for March Madness, or showing that a particular chemistry study has statistical validity. It can also be applied to many games, providing a way to make better decisions in your quest to win. As the owner of over 70 board, card, and dice games, I�ve had a lot of experience playing games and over the last few years I�ve studied the mathematics and probability that goes into these games. The result of my studies is my very own textbook on �The Mathematics of Games� and this very talk. This conversation series event will focus on the two games of Yahtzee and Monopoly, looking into the mathematical framework that can be used to answer interesting questions about these games. Let�s have some fun!"

Walking the Labyrinth

The tradition of walking the labyrinth as a spiritual exercise dates back to around 4500 B.C.E. The labyrinth appeals to seekers of every faith tradition and seekers with little or no faith tradition. The labyrinth reminds us with every walk we take that our spiritual journey flows back & forth, from the outside to the inside, from the inside to the outside. The labyrinth links body & soul. We walk the labyrinth with intention. We un-knot, un-wind, un-tangle. We let the circle guide us (passive) as we walk the circle (active). The Labyrinth will be available in Garrett on Wednesday, April 1st from 10am until 3:00 pm. There will be �how to� cards available for those who have never walked the labyrinth before. All are welcome. For more information please contact Chaplain Chris or Kathy Russo at 375-2300.
