Wednesday, October 3, 2018
First-Floor Auditorium, Keating Hall
Rose Hill Campus
Can we become better at solving real-world problems by learning creative puzzle-solving skills?
We solve countless problems—big and small—every day. Despite so much practice, why do we sometimes struggle in classes or have trouble making simple decisions? Are we doomed to this muddle? Or is there a practical way to learn to think more effectively and creatively?
In this lively presentation, Edward B. Burger, Ph.D., a former stand-up comedian, professor of mathematics, and an award-winning educational leader, will offer some practical practices that will help us become far better at learning and at solving the puzzles of our daily lives.
All are welcome—young and less-young alike.
This event is co-sponsored by the Department of Mathematics, the Graduate School of Education, and the office of the Dean at Fordham College at Rose Hill.
