Math Club: "Coin Tossing and The Weierstrass Approximation Theorem"

Description: The Weierstrass Approximation theorem is a central result on the approximation of continuous functions.  We present a probabilistic proof of the theorem that is both constructive and that offers us explicit error bounds.  The proof serves as an example of the importance of probability theory as a tool for proving analytical results.
