Today I was teaching probability in MAT 142 College Mathematics and told the story of some guys that discovered a bug in video poker machines. My students were fascinated with the story and it gave me an opportunity to relate probabilities to real like. I thought you all might be interested too.
Kyley Segers has worked as a member of the mathematics faculty at Pima Community College East Campus since fall of 2012. In that time she has grown tremendously as an instructor thanks to a fellowship in AMATYC’s Project ACCCESS (Cohort 10) and the mentorship of her fantastic colleagues. Currently she serves as a coordinator to Pima’s developmental mathematics emporium course, as a campus Honors Coordinator, and as one of the newest delegates representing ArizMATYC for the coming term. When she is not focused on school, Kyley enjoys playing games of skill (Settlers of Catan, anyone?), learning all sorts of new things, and road trips with good music.
