Capturing Sea to Sky COVID Stories: Writing Workshop

COVID-19 has turned our lives upside down.

No writing experience required. All levels of writing ability welcome! Adults and teens are invited to participate.

To register, email jbruce@whistlerlibrary.ca!

Quest Lecture Series
Mathematics Through Interesting Problems: The Königsberg Bridge
Wednesday, April 21, 7:00 - 8:30 pm

Networks describe relationships and are currently used to answer many different kinds of questions.

Many of these questions are about optimizing, for example, marketing (what audience do we target?), vaccinations (what populations ensure the greatest coverage?), while others are about paths through the network, for example, racism and misconduct in police forces, how ideas are spread (e.g. the Arab Spring).

Join Asia Matthews and you’ll get a chance to draw out a fundamental mathematical truth.
