The 85 Ways to Tie a Tie
This talk presents a fun mathematical discussion of the number of ways to knot a necktie. Following a humorous look at the history of men's neckware, we will learn a mathematical notation for necktie patterns and use this to enumerate just how many ways there are to tie a tie. Attendees (of all genders!) are encouraged to bring a necktie or scarf to participate during the talk.
