60 Evans Hall

Mathematics Professor Alberto Grunbaum will discuss a number of games, some of them similar to ones you encounter in a casino. In this real-world example of probability, in many of these cases you discover -- usually too late -- that the house will always beat you in the long run even if the rules of the game appear to be perfectly fair.
