Learn what connects seemingly diverse topics such as theoretical chemistry, internet security, kidney stone treatment, satellite dishes, and credit cards on Wednesday, Nov. 20, from 4-5 p.m. in Room 126 DePaul Hall on the Niagara University campus. Dr. Robert Rogers, distinguished teaching professor of mathematics at SUNY Fredonia, will explore the mathematics behind these topics, which involves only drawing, counting, numbers, some geometry, and some imagination.
