GEMS Workshop: Mathematics of Information with Professor Lucas Bang of Harvey Mudd College

November 2 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

TOPIC: The Mathematics of Information

We are surrounded by information. Words in books, ones and zeros in computers, mathematical equations, and DNA sequences are all examples of information, but can we say something more about it? In this workshop, we will learn about the mathematics of information, see how it is related to concepts from physics and artificial intelligence, and explore how it can be used to solve games.

WHAT IS GEMS:

The Gateway to Exploring Mathematics program (GEMS) is a series of workshops that helps excite the interests and curiosity of young students in mathematics and science.

GEMS meets once a month on a Saturday morning from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM.

GEMS is designed to reach 8th, 9th and 10th grade students who have an interest in mathematics and science.

Participants interact with excellent and award winning faculty, staff, students and alumni from each of the seven Claremont Colleges.
