Do you like Sudoku? Do you like to play Set? In this activity, we will make connections between Latin squares (Sudoku is a specific type) and the game Set. Don't worry, no prior knowledge or puzzle/game experience is required! Join us if you want to have some fun with some math puzzles and games!
Publishing in MAA Periodicals: Invited speaker Dr. Susan Jane Colley will briefly survey the variety of journals published by the MAA, highlighting what the Editorial Boards seek in submissions. She will be glad to entertain questions at the end, especially with respect to submitting to The American Mathematical Monthly.

Additional informal faculty discussion to follow, based on participant interest.
EPaDel attendees are welcome to attend any portion of the session. The first hour will provide a brief introduction to the PASSHE project and information about the national movement toward co-requisite math support classes for underprepared students. This may be the most interesting part of the session for non-PASSHE participants. Those who wish to get into the finer details are welcome to stay as long as they like. The Zoom link is included in the email with your EPaDel Zoom links.
