Let's Square Some Circles

  • Thursday, November 1, 2018
  • 3:40 PM–4:30 PM
  • North Hall 276

Mike McDaniel, Aquinas College

They said squaring the circle was impossible...

Bring your drawing compass and straightedge and construct hyperbolic and elliptic regular quadrilaterals and circles of equal area. Then, we can add squaring the circle to the list of things which are impossible in Euclidean geometry and possible in non-Euclidean geometry.

Refreshments precede the talk at 3:30 p.m. in NH 282.
