Club Minutes: Oct. 2, 2014

Math Club Minutes Oct. 2, 2014:

We had casino night and the Mexican cokes were a hit.  Also, the croissants were fantastic.  I am glad Cody brought in some of his own snacks for the club.  Everyone thank him when you see him. 

Professor Tong and Professor Lapuz joined us for the casino fun madness.  I hope they had an excellent time helping with the probability questions and gambling…well faux gambling anyway.  I thought it was really interesting learner how the gambling odds are actually not the same as the actual probability to win….WHAT?!!  I know…the casinos lie to us. 

I lost some fake money last night, too.  Math club was rolling in my fake, loaned money.  The monopoly man would have been proud.

The last 15 minutes were spent talking about blackjack.  We played a couple hands while Alain talked about how easy it is to count cards…showoff.  Well I think overall the night was extremely successful.  We played two different games, talked about some math (occasionally) and had a good time while doing it.  The only thing that would make it better would be if we could somehow convince the school to allow alcohol to the meetings.  Man, life would be good.

Aj Out!!!!
