Lead Speaker:
Al Cuoco

Problem: find a function that agrees with a table of data. In this interactive session, we will look at classical methods that reveal connections among algebra, combinatorics, and arithmetic. Useful across a range of high school topics, the methods feature special appearances by some favorite mathematicians: Newton, Pascal, Lagrange, and Mahler.
