*Help test Math Day Probe I and II questions! *

Math Day is an event that attracts hundreds of Nebraska high school students to the UNL campus. During Math Day students have fun challenges and try out their in math skills in Probe I and II. Instead of a talk, we will run this event workshop style. We will give each tester a subset of possible Probe questions we'd like feedback on. Primarily, we want to make sure the problems are accessible for high school students. Pizza and soda will be provided.

### Past Events

** Thursday, September 26, 5 pm in 351 Avery Hall: **

*Math Talk by Maciej Piwowarczyk *

Title: Exploring Pseudorandomness

If I were to ask you to give me a random number between 1 and 10, how would you come up with a number? Would you give me the first number that comes to mind? Would you pull out your phone and ask Siri, or use a Google search? If I wanted a truly random number, would you be more reliably random or would a machine be? Why should we even care about a number being truly random? These are some of the questions that we will explore in this talk about pseudorandom number generation! We’ll learn about the history of the tools, try out a few methods ourselves, and explore the many ways in which pseudorandom number generators can affect our daily and professional lives. Pizza and soda will be provided.

**Tuesday, September 24, 6:30-8:30 pm in 348 Avery Hall:**

* Game Night organized by the Association for Women in Math student chapter *

Come play games, eat pizza, and meet people. All are welcome!
