    Learn to Love the Floor is contemporary urban floor movement, the democratization of floor based movement & dance styles for people who are attracted to the floor based dimensions of Breaking or Capoeira but can't commit to the entire art form and culture. Curated movements and in depth biomechanics (the how to) so the movements and floor-based movement as a whole can be safely incorporated into your movement vocabulary. For folks who are more familiar with floor based movement it is a learning laboratory. For anyone it is an hour and a half of movement love and a communal experience of creativity.


    Armando Davila
    is an Oakland Born, Berkeley and east bay raised; artist, spiritualist, and activist who orients within the intersection of justice, environmental restoration, spiritual awakening, and survivable futures for the biosphere. He hopes to overcome the patterns of trauma and abuse in this world through innovative literacy on the human condition on the collective scale.

    Math and Statistics Lecture Series: Identifying Car Acceptability Using C5.0 Decision Trees and Rules

    Identifying Car Acceptability Using C5.0 Decision Trees and Rules by Ruby Suarez, Sonoma State University

    The C5.0 decision tree algorithm and rule learners are two machine learning methods that also make complex decisions from sets of simple choices. Decision tree learners are powerful classifiers, which utilize a tree structure to model the relationship among the features and potential outcomes. Decision trees are built using a technique called recursive partitioning, also known as divide and conquer which splits the data into subsets which then split into even smaller subsets until the algorithm determines the data within the subsets are sufficiently homogenous.

    Enjoy tea and cookies at the Math and Statistics Lecture Series every Wednesday at 4PM.

    Math and Statistics Lecture Series: Re-presentation and Multiple Representations

    Re-presentation and Multiple Representations by Kevin Moore, University of Georgia

    In this talk, using the function concept, I clarify potential issues with “using multiple representations” as typically framed. I describe how these issues can explain the mixed results typically found with using multiple representations. In doing so, I draw on my research group’s work to illustrate a productive approach to “using multiple representations” that relies less on the type or number of representations and more on the act of re-presenting covariational relationships.

      Math and Statistics Lecture Series: Some Applications of the Combinatorial Nullstellensatz and the Discharging Method

      Some Applications of the Combinatorial Nullstellensatz and the Discharging Method by Sogol Jahanbekam, San Jose State University

      The discharging method is a tool in a two-step approach to inductive proofs of some problems in graph theory. It is used to prove that a global hypothesis guarantees the existence of some desirable local configurations. The Combinatorial Nullstellensatz is an algebraic tool in combinatorics and number theory. In graph theory it is applied to prove the existence of certain configurations or labelings in graphs. In this talk we briefly talk about these two techniques. We then apply them in some graph coloring problems.

      Mr. BURNS: A post-electric play

      Mr. BURNS: A post-electric play

      A nuclear event has destroyed all power plants and collapsed the electric grid. In the post-doomsday wasteland, ragged bands of survivors gather together for protection. Trying to forget how scared they are, they speak of anything but the tragedy, conjuring up memories of old Tv shows, pop culture, cartoons. When someone (mis)remembers a Simpsons episode (you’ll want to re-watch “Cape Feare” S5 E2), a new performance ritual is born. Mr. Burns is a bizarre, funny, bleak, and wonderful exploration of the power of storytelling and the origins of civilization.

Together, we will consider different problem-solving practices employed by mathematicians, discuss strategic applications of these mathematical habits, and practice applying these strategies to new problems.

              Math and Statistics Lecture Series: Analysis Meets Arithmetic

              Analysis Meets Arithmetic by Ken Jacobs, Northwestern University

              One of the first things we learn about in arithmetic is that every real number can be written in decimal expansion. Years later, we learn in calculus that lots of functions can be written as Taylor series. These two topics, typically learned years apart, are strikingly similar, and the analogy between them motivated Kurt Hensel to introduce p-adic numbers. In this talk, we'll explore Hensel's construction and the beautiful mathematics that have since unfolded.
