M13880: Probability puzzles: Linearity of Expectation in Spark 2020 (Mar. 14 - 15, 2020)
The theory of probability is full of fun puzzles, a lot of which have amazingly short and intuitive proofs. One essential tool for solving many such problems is using the linearity of expectation. We're going to explore puzzles where this fact plays a central point in the solutions. More importantly, we're going to have fun and we're going to eat candy!

M12806: Probability Puzzles in Spark 2019 (Mar. 16 - 17, 2019)
We will look at some fun probability puzzles and paradoxes, and if there's time, we will play some fun games involving some math.

M12063: Probability Paradoxes, Puzzles and Games in Spark 2018 (Mar. 17 - 18, 2018)
Nothing scary - we will go over some fun paradoxes and play some games involving gambling candy (no need to bring your own candy).

X12064: Intro to Linguistics in Spark 2018 (Mar. 17 - 18, 2018)
We will go over the field of mathematical and computational linguistics, look at problems from NACLO and discuss participating in high school competitions and Olympiads on national and international level.

M11882: Random Probability Paradoxes in Splash 2017 (Nov. 18 - 19, 2017)
Can you solve the following question? On average, how many times must a die be thrown so that one gets a 6? Yes? Nice. No? It's fine, you can still come. We will just play around with some fun probability puzzles and paradoxes.
