Subject: Mobile Math Circle Special Event “Fusing Dots, Antidots, and Black Holes” with Harold Reiter, UNC Charlotte
The Mobile Mathematics Circle presents a guest lecture by Professor Harold Reiter from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte entitled Fusing Dots, Antidots, and Black Holes. For decades, Harold Reiter has been a math missionary for students in North Carolina. His day job is to teach math to college students at UNC Charlotte. But he spends many Saturdays at math competitions, camps and festivals that he established for gifted middle and high school students who were not sufficiently challenged in the classroom. He has chaired the American Mathematics Competition committee and he has served on the Question Writing Committee of MATHCOUNTS as well as the USA Mathematics Olympic Committee. Some of his problems were featured in Wordplay, the New York Times’ crossword blog, and he has been a contributor to the Problems Section of the London Times. The lecture is free of charge and open to high school and middle school students as well as teachers and parents. The e vent is sponsored by the Alabama Space Grant Consortium and the Department of Mathematics of the University of South Alabama.
