Title: Big, Bigger, and Really Big Numbers

Abstract:

We will at look how large some numbers are that we see everyday and how to think about numbers much larger than a calculator can deal with. Then we will look at a math problem whose answer breaks most computers. By the end of our journey we will see that it turns out that infinity is a lot farther away than we thought.
