The Problem with Pentagons — Scarsdale High School
I’m excited to be visiting Scarsdale High School, where I’ll be talking about the recent classification of pentagonal tilings of the plane. In my talk, The Problem with Pentagons, I’ll show how a math problem accessible to high school geometry students has a solution that ultimately spans centuries, cultures, and disciplines. The talk is based in part my recent article for Quanta Magazine.
I’m looking forward to meeting students and teachers, visiting some classes, learning more about Scarsdale HS, and talking about tilings!
