The M*A*T*H Colloquium: What Even Are Fractals? With Andrea Arauza Rivera, CSUEB

We will begin with a "you know it when you see it" introduction to fractal sets. For many years mathematicians avoided working with fractals and referred to them as the "monsters" of mathematics. Recently, however, mathematicians have begun to explore fractals, as they can be used to describe the chaotic nature of the real world. We will embark on a historical journey where we'll meet important mathematicians who study fractal sets and on the way we will explore some of the basic properties that make fractals so monstrous.

Sonoma Film Institute: The Third Wife

Born and raised in Vietnam, writer/director Ash Mayfair has drawn upon her familial history (both grandmother and great-grandmother were in arranged marriages at a young age) to create the fictitious 19th century drama of 14-year-old May, who becomes the third wife of an older man. With a largely female cast and crew, THE THIRD WIFE portrays the strictures of patriarchy, the rules by which a woman can gain some degree of prestige and power (as the mother of a son), and the consequences any deviance will engender. But most of all, this is a story of emotional bonding among three generations of women, in a setting that is both exquisitely beautiful and painfully repressive.

The M*A*T*H Colloquium: Euclid and Euler: The Evolution of Number Theory with Phil Kutzko, University of Iowa/Math Alliance

When we who are working mathematicians carry out our duty of explaining mathematics to our students, we often forget how important it is to explain the way in which mathematicians think. This is by no means an entirely scientific matter and, in fact, there is a big cultural component to how we think about mathematics. If we neglect to discuss this component, we deprive our students of the “secrets” of our profession and then they must discover those secrets by themselves. And this is especially true if our students come from backgrounds where they have had little exposure to the dominant scientific culture and way of thinking. We will look at the question of whether or not there is an infinite number of prime numbers first from the point of view of Euclid and then from the much more technical and cultur- ally specific point of view of Euler.

The M*A*T*H Colloquium: Collegiate Mathematics Education Research Sampler with Shandy Hauk, SFSU

This session is a sampler across four studies. First, are results of a recent examination of Khan Academy use in community college algebra. Then come preliminary findings from a study on flipped approaches to teaching calculus at institutions in the Cal State system. Early results from a third study, on a mini-course for faculty who teach future K-8 teachers, indicate there are special kinds of mathematical and cross-cultural knowledge needed for teaching future teachers. Finally, the collo- quium will dig deeply into a fourth area: how to build attention to equity and instructional responsiveness into mathematics graduate student preparation. Series supported by Instructionally-Related Activities Funds

Coffee, tea and cookies at 3:45 p.m.

Join us for a movie night featuring the 2019 movie “Yesterday.”

Summary: In Lowestoft UK, Jack Malik is a frustrated musician whose musical career is going nowhere despite the faith that his friend/manager Ellie Appleton has in him. However, on the night Jack decides to give up, the whole world is momentarily hit with a massive blackout during which Jack is hit by a bus. Upon regaining consciousness, Jack learns to his astonishment that he is apparently now the only one who knows the music of the Beatles. Realizing this improbable opportunity, Jack begins playing the music of the greatest of the rock bands, claiming it as his own. It pays off quickly and Jack becomes a worldwide musical sensation. However, Jack finds himself drifting away from Ellie, only realizing his love for her when she has become intimidated by his success, which depends on a blatant plagiarization that no one could find out. Now, Jack must make a fundamental moral decision about his music to satisfy his conscience as he decides what he truly needs.
