Math Awareness Month

The University of Washington, Bothell will celebrate Math Awareness Month with the showing of the movie "I.Q." on April 30 from 6-8 p.m. in Room UW2-003. The movie features Catherine (played by Meg Ryan) a gifted mathematician who lives with her uncle, Albert Einstein (played by Walter Matthau). Einstein and his professor pals, including the famous mathematician Kurt Godel, conspire to match Catherine with Ed (played by Tim Robbins).
   There will also be weekly contests throughout April. Each week, a problem will be posed from a movie. Anyone who solves the problem correctly will be entered into a drawing for a prize. Details can be found at www.bothell.washington.edu/qsc/mam.
   The movie and the contests are free and open to the public. Space is limited for the events. Parking is $1. For more information, call Cinnamon Hillyard at (425) 352-3169.
