Alissa Crans, from Loyola Marymount University, will discuss "The Mathematics of Tiling" and we will create sidewalk art at the Tome outdoor classroom area. Pizza provided and everyone is welcome.

Interest in tiling patterns dates back to 4000 BCE. Together, we'll construct two recent ones: the Conway Pinwheel and - hot off the press! - the March 2023 discovery of an aperiodic monotile called "the hat". Join us as we discuss the math behind these tilings and create sidewalk art.
