MT 1170 - Mathematics in the Modern World

A one-semester conceptual mathematics course designed to address topics in mathematics appearing in the world around us, through inquiry-based, hands-on activities and discussion. Emphasis will be on conceptual understanding and on how mathematics is applied in the real, everyday world. Students will be expected to demonstrate conceptual and applied understanding of mathematical topics through class discourse, written assessment, and the design of a project using mathematics to be included in a “Mystical Math Room.” Course projects will contribute to the development of a Mystical Math Room to be set up in October as an educational math experience for all math students and the public.
