ah Bartz\, Associate Professor of Mathematics\, University of North Dakota\
n\nAbstract: Mathematics has a rich history of posing and solving challenge
problems and puzzles. The figure above is the graph of the polar curve r =
sqrt(cos(2t)) + (7/5)cos(t) in the Cartesian plane for values of t where s
qrt(cos(2t)) exists. Originally posed by Gregory Dresden in Math Horizons\,
can you determine with justification whether the graph is a circle?\n\nIn
this talk\, several examples of challenge problems will be presented aimed
at general undergraduate and graduate audience. Additionally\, opportunitie
s for UND students and broader community to engage in problem solving and p
roblem competitions are discussed.\n\nSo\, is it a circle or not a circle?
Find out next Monday at 4:00 PM.
