## Ninth Annual Thomas Pirnot Lecture in Mathematics

*"The Joy of SET®: The Mathematics In a Card Game"*

**Dr. Elizabeth McMahon and Dr. Gary Gordon, Lafayette College**

The card game SET® is played with a special deck of 81 cards. There is quite a lot of mathematics that can be explored using the game. We’ll look at questions in combinatorics, probability, linear algebra, and especially geometry. The deck is an excellent model for a 4-dimensional finite affine geometry. If you’d like some practice before the talk, go to www.setgame.com for the rules and a Daily Puzzle.
