Mathematics of Billiards

Free pizza, pool, and videos about the geometry of pool.


Billiards night was one of the first events that Christina and I plan for Math Club. It was a relatively simple event, focused on bringing together people For a night of pool and pizza. We played videos about billiards, including ones that went over the geometry of planning different types of shots on televisions in the background of the pool hall. We held this event several times over the years.


This event was held at the pool hall on campus, which meant that we got a discounted rate for renting the space. Funding was provided through the Student Government Association. billiards-poster
