      2019 Parsons Lecture by Ronald D. Taylor – The Patterns of Play: A Recreational View of Mathematics

      Ronald D. Taylor, professor of mathematics at Berry College, will deliver the 2019 Parsons Lecture Thursday, March 21, at 7 p.m. in Lipinsky Auditorium. This talk is free and open to everyone. Taylor will examine mathematical structures found in games, card tricks and origami, and look at how math can be applied for enjoyment.

      Taylor has researched graph theory, number theory, and recreational mathematics. He received the Deborah and Franklin Tepper Haimo Award for Distinguished College or University Teaching of Mathematics in 2018 from the Mathematical Association of America.

      UNC Asheville’s annual Parsons Lecture is funded through an endowment from a mathematics alumnus in honor of Professor Emeritus of Mathematics Joe Parsons. The goal of the Parsons Lecture is to bring to Asheville a nationally renowned mathematician able to communicate mathematical concepts with a general audience.
