Studies In Mathematics

About This Page

Math 110-111 was (and maybe still is?) the University of Chicago's alternative course to calculus. The first quarter is number theory, and the second quarter is geometry and symmetry. When I taught the courses, I covered history of number systems, different base number systems and nim, modular arithmetic, cryptography, and public key cryptography. In the second quarter, we did axiom systems, non-euclidean geometry, and tesselations.

I'm now teaching Math and the Art of M.C. Escher at SLU, so that page is a lot more up to date. Go there.

This is no longer maintained, but is still on the web as a resource for teachers. Things that might be of interest:
