Whether you love math or hate it, you're a natural mathematician. In fact, our innate math instinct is so hardwired that even newborn infants can detect errors in simple calculations of addition and subtraction. Keith Devlin, NPR's "Math Guy" and author of The Math Instinct, will talk with us about the natural number sense that allows dogs to catch frisbees, bees to build honeycombs, birds to migrate, ants to navigate, and much more. Books will be available for sale at the event.
