Let's Code Math
Let's Talk Science and the UVic Math & Stats Department have been working together to bring you a day of mathematical fun!
This event will take place during the annual "Computer Science Education Week", and will introduce you to some of the ways in which mathematics and computer science work together. We will begin our day with an introduction to graph theory, an area of mathematics with close ties to computer science. Using graph theory, you will examine a special problem whose solution can be used to build sudoku puzzles!
We will also look at the connection between mathematics and computer science from the other direction, exploring ways in which computer-based computational methods can help theoretical physicists work with equations that are too complicated to be completely solved.
