Habits of Graphing: "I just don't like that!"
Feb

Habits of Graphing: "I just don't like that!"

Imagine a rider at a carnival going around a Ferris wheel at a constant speed. What is the graph of the rider’s height and the total distance the rider traveled around the
wheel? This may sound like a typical problem asked in a trigonometry class used to introduce students to sine and cosine functions. However, what ways of thinking about
the graph are influenced by our image of the situation itself? What habits of graphing confuse us in accurately representing the quantities in the situation? In this talk, we
explore certain habits of graphing that might constrain students from developing consistent understandings of relationships. We will play with a collection of animated
tasks to see what habits of graphing we have formed and what we can learn from these habits in designing activities for students.

Coffee, Tea, and Cookies!

The Life And Times of Rosie the Riveter

Bay Area Filmmaker Connie Field’s critically acclaimed documentary on the wartime experiences of women workers. Juxtaposing old photographs and newsreel footage with reminiscences of five former Rosies, the film forms a bittersweet statement about American attitudes and hypocritical doctrines. “These were no tap-dancing girls swaying rhythmically at Lockheed, as Hollywood imaged them, but earnest individuals who had their dreams of economic survival, who really did praise the Lord and pass the ammunition.” - Albert Johnson  Selected by the Library of Congress to be preserved in the United States National Film Registry. Director Connie Field will be present to introduce the film and answer questions after the screening.Released: 1980

78/52

Sonoma County Premiere! The screeching strings, the plunging knife, the slow zoom out from a lifeless eyeball: in 1960, Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho changed film history forever with its taboo-shattering shower scene. With 78 camera set-ups and 52 edits over the course of 3 minutes, Psycho redefined screen violence, set the stage for decades of slasher films to come, and introduced a new element of danger to the moviegoing experience. Aided by a roster of filmmakers, critics, and fans—including Guillermo del Toro, Bret Easton Ellis, Jamie Lee Curtis, Eli Roth, and Peter Bogdanovich—director Alexandre O. Philippe pulls back the curtain on the making and influence of this cinematic game changer, breaking it down frame by frame and unpacking Hitchcock’s dense web of allusions and double meanings. The result is an enthralling piece of cinematic detective work that’s nirvana for film buffs.

Director Alexandre Philippe will introduce the film and answer questions after the Friday screening.

Social Justice Film Series Presents: Hidden Figures

As America stood on the brink of a Second World War, the push for aeronautical advancement grew ever greater, spurring an insatiable demand for mathematicians. Women were the solution. Ushered into the Langley Memorial Aeronautical Laboratory in 1935 to shoulder the burden of number crunching, they acted as human computers, freeing the engineers of hand calculations in the decades before the digital age. Sharp and successful, the female population at Langley skyrocketed.

Many of these “computers” are finally getting their due, but conspicuously missing from this story of female achievement are the efforts contributed by courageous, African-American women. Called the West Computers, after the area to which they were relegated, they helped blaze a trail for mathematicians and engineers of all races and genders to follow. Join us as we watch, enjoy FREE Pizza, and discuss the film afterwards with Dr Sara Kassis, Adjunct Professor of Engineering

Science and the Director for Women In Tech.

Inverted Chessboards and Kissing Circles: A Look at Inversive Geometry

Inverted Chessboards and Kissing Circles: A Look at Inversive Geometry

Geometric transformations of the plane (e.g. reflections, rotations, translations, and dilations) are studied in high school geometry classes. Rather than reflecting points (and
sets of points) over a given line, what happens when we “reflect” them over a given circle? (This is Pi Day, so circles should pop up.) We will dive into the strange world
of inversive geometry where points are “reflected over a circle.” This session will include some active work in pairs. If you can, bring a screen that can be viewed by two
people (e.g. a notebook computer or tablet).

Lost in Paris

North Bay Premiere! "Fiona (Fiona Gordon), a shy and nerdy librarian, visits Paris for the first time to assist her myopic octogenarian Aunt Martha (Emmanuelle Riva). All manner of comic catastrophes ensue, mainly involving Dom (Dominique Abel), a gently anarchic homeless man who has yet to have an emotion or thought he was afraid of expressing, or an appetite he hasn’t tried to immediately satisfy. Gordon and Abel, the writer-directors of cult classics L’ICEBERG and THE FAIRY, and contemporary heirs apparent to Keaton and Tati, again construct a quietly dizzying succession of chance meetings, mistaken identities, impossible coincidences and elaborate stunts and gags. In their eccentric alternate universe, a backpack, old photos and some stray bottles of champagne somehow become magical erotic talismans. And you won’t want to miss the film’s main theme song, written by Loudon Wainwright III and sung by Kate and Anna McGarrigle." - Telluride Film Festival.

Social Justice Film Series Presents: Lion

In 1986, Saroo was a five-year-old child in India of a poor but happy rural family. On a trip with his brother, Saroo soon finds himself alone and trapped in a moving decommissioned passenger train that takes him to Calcutta, 1500 miles away from home. Now totally lost in an alien urban environment and too young to identify either himself or his home to the authorities, Saroo struggles to survive as a street child until he is sent to an orphanage. Soon, Saroo is selected to be adopted by the Brierley family in Tasmania, where he grows up in a loving, prosperous home. However, for all his material good fortune, Saroo finds himself plagued by his memories of his lost family in his adulthood and tries to search for them even as his guilt drives him to hide this quest from his adoptive parents and his girlfriend. Only when he has an epiphany does he realize not only the answers he needs, but also the steadfast love that he has always had with all his loved ones in both worlds.

Join us as we watch, enjoy FREE Pizza, and discuss the film afterwards with Dr Don Romesburg, Professor of Women’s and Gender Studies.

Alliances and Interventions: US-Israel Relations and the Syrian Civil War

Ft. speaker Uri Marantz, PhD. Candidate, Carleton University’s Norman Paterson School of International Affairs, Ottawa

The United States and Israel share a “special relationship,” a pivotal alliance with major implications for a region beset by civil war. Although the US and Israel share the same geopolitical orientation, their strategic objectives and military interventions in Syria – one of the worst civil wars in modern history – have not always been compatible. This presentation explores the history of the US-Israel alliance, places it within the context of the Arab Spring uprisings, and unpacks the alliance politics of foreign intervention in the Syrian civil war since 2011.

Inversion in the Plane

Inversion in the Plane

Everyone knows the Pythagorean Theorem, and some may even know that, roughly, it has as many proofs as there are math fans around the world. Yet, do you know what
the most proof-abundant geometry theorem might be that is situated on the circle? And what might be its most profound yet super-clever proof that reduces it to a statement
a 3rd grader would have no trouble accepting? In this talk, we will delve into the method of Inversion in the Plane, which will not only solve this particular problem, but
will open up opportunities for attacking a whole array of geometry problems that would otherwise be close to impossible to solve. Inversion in the Plane was one of the
very first topics I learned while training on the Bulgarian team for the International Math Olympiads, and even to this day, it is still one of my favorite math topics that has
taught me to never assume any boundaries on human imagination. Standard geometry background, no calculus, and a certain amount of daring will be needed to engage in
the talk.

Modeling and Computational Simulations of Pulsating Soft Corals
Apr

4:00 PM16:00

Modeling and Computational Simulations of Pulsating Soft Corals

Soft corals of the family Xeniidae are a subset of octocorals that actively pulse their tentacles. Evidence indicates that the pulsing helps facilitate photosynthesis and
decreases photorespiration of the symbiotic algae that live on the corals. One way to investigate this complex behavior of pulsing is through mathematical modeling and
numerical simulations. This presentation will be an overview of numerical methods for modeling the coral motion and the resulting fluid flow, and then we couple the
resulting flow with advection and diffusion of a concentration, since these play a role in photosynthesis and photorespiration.

Arabs in Israel’s Three Branches of Power: Politics, Identity, and Leadership

Arabs in Israel’s Three Branches of Power: Politics, Identity, and Leadership

  • Schroeder Hall, Green Music Center (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Featuring speaker Rami Zeedan, PhD.  Visiting Assistant professor and Israel Institute Visiting Faculty, University of California, Berkeley

In light of the historical development and contemporary trends of “integration vs segregation” of Israeli Arabs in the three branches of power in Israeli political system, this study discusses the development of politics, identity, and leadership among Arabs in Israel. It concludes that Arabs in Israel are minimally integrated in the Israeli political system and in many respects, are separated from it. The major problems among the Arabs in Israel rely on external factors, in regard to national politics, but more importantly on internal ones, in regard to the local kinship-based politics. This presentation explores the history of the US-Israel alliance, places it within the context of the Arab Spring uprisings, and unpacks the alliance politics of foreign intervention in the Syrian civil war since 2011.
