Join us for a cold drink and some enlightening conversation at the latest installment of Science on Tap! This series is sponsored by the School of Science & the School of Science Alumni Association and is a 21 and older event.
In January Michael R. Pilla will present "The Mathematics of Voting: How to Upgrade Our Democracy". Everyone is aware of the importance placed on the democratic process. Some even understand that there are different voting methods that lead to wildly different results. In this presentation, Michael will present a few voting methods and the paradoxes we must dance around. With a big election year in 2020, it is important we reflect on how we have gotten to where we are, if the electoral college is really part of the problem, and how we can improve our democracy. It turns out a little math can go a long way!
