Daniel Bartlett Memorial Lecture: How to Use Math to Get Rich in the Lottery*
For seven years, a group of students from the MIT exploited a loophole in the Massachusetts State Lottery’s Cash WinFall game to win drawing after drawing, eventually pocketing more than $3 million. How did they do it? How did the lottery finally catch up with them? And what does this all have to do with probability, geometry, and combinatorics?
This lecture will include an interactive segment, and will be friendly to K-12 teachers, middle and high-school students.
Seating is limited and on a first come first serve basis.
