We’re very happy to say that friend of the Math Club (and fellow math blogger) Tim Chartier was selected by the MAA to give their MAA Distinguished Lecture Series this year. On February 28, Dr. Chartier gave a talk entitled “March Mathness”where he talked about how to use linear algebra to rank sports teams.  Just the thing if you’re making your March Madness bracket!

There is an article about Dr. Chartier and his invited lecture here on the MAA website.

Or, if you’d like to watch the lecture and have a Math Club at home, the MAA has posted a video:

Thanks to our own Keri Kornelson for pointing out that Dr. Chartier received this honored invitation.
