Abstract: Questions involving probability can be both fun and maddening. They can be fun because they're easy to state and only elementary mathematics is needed to solve them. They can be maddening because their solutions are sometimes so surprising and subtle. In this talk I will discuss some probability puzzlers, starting with the famous "Monty Hall Problem" which puzzled the even more famous mathematician Paul Erdos.
Biography: He received his Ph.D. from Princeton University. He did his undergraduate work at the University of Chicago and he has been teaching at Edgewood College since 1988.
