Title: Can You Cut It?

Abstract: Can you cut a given rectangle with straight cuts and reassemble the pieces to get a square? What if the square and rectangle are replaced by other polygons? What happens in three dimensions? In this interactive talk, I will tell you the answers, and convince you why they are so.
