Martin Gardner Celebration at Butler University
Please put the following event on your website map. At our Oct. 20th Martin Gardner celebration at Butler University (9:30am-12nn) room 183 Jordan Hall, we will start with a brief demonstration of the 12 Scientific American covers inspired by Gardner’s column. A cake will have the first cover (November 1958) printed in frosting on it ( a square divided into smaller squares).
I will also hand out a Puzzle and Game of size 4×4 inspired by the November 1959 (the second cover) issue on Euler Latin squares. (see attached)
We then expect the students in our M. Gardner class to present their own puzzles and games – all with a Gardner theme.
