MATH 1250
Math Thinking in Real World

Course Description

An inquiry course open to all undergraduates. In this course, aimed at students in the humanities and social sciences, we study some of the greatest ideas of mathematics that are often hidden from view in lower division courses. Topics selected from number theory, the infinite, geometry, topology, chaos and fractals, and probability. Taught in a computer classroom.


Three years of high school mathematics or a grade of C- or better in MATH 1200. (An understanding beyond MATH 0260 is needed.)
