      • MAA Representative and Student Luncheon Speaker: Doug Ensley, Deputy Executive Director MAA - "Invariants Under Group Actions to Amaze Your Friends!"
        • By understanding invariant properties of a group action (a.k.a., shuffling) on a deck of cards, a magician can find order where the spectator believes he or she has created disorder, often resulting in a surprising, perhaps even magical effect. This presentation will highlight some specific card tricks that illustrate the mathematical ideas of permutations and invariance
      • Opening Talk/Polya Lecture: Erica Flapan, Pomona College - Intrinsic Properties of Graphs Embedded in R3
      • Anderson Lecturer: Ed Burger, Southwestern University - "Effective Thinking and Creative Puzzle-Solving"
        • Here's a Puzzle: How can we joyfully and impactfully engage our students to thrive in their math courses? How can we inspire our students to see the beauty and power of mathematical thinking? Here we will offer some practical strategies of thinking that will allow our students to not only make greater meaning of mathematics, but use those mindful practices beyond their math classes and for the rest of their lives. We will illustrate these strategies of effective thinking through some illustrative puzzles.
