• Here is a bundle of activities and games connected with the triangle decomposition problem on graphs.
  • Here's a video exploring a dice switching game communicated to me by Richard Nowakowski. I think it has a really cool inductive solution!
  • Here's a video on generating random latin squares, using a method of 'improper trades' due to Jacobson and Mathews.
  • In March 2020, I organized an IdeaFest talk and activity session on latin square completion.

    Undergraduate Mathematics Competitions:

  • The UVic Math Competition is held annually in early fall.
