Topic: Candy Sharing

Session Leader: David Patrick, Art of Problem Solving

Session Description: If we give a bunch of children several pieces of candy, and force them to share with their neighbors in a particular way, can we end up with each child having exactly 1 piece of candy or will we end up in an infinite sharing loop?  We'll discuss this and other related sharing scenarios.
