3/13/2016 -- Intermediate: Resolving Zeno's paradox. (Oleg Gleizer)

We will resume studying of the 1/31 handout from Problem 13. We will further use geometric series to resolve the most famous of Zeno's paradoxes, the one about Achilles and a tortoise. If time permits, we will start learning from the Algebra book by Gelfand and Shen.
