MATH 1025 - Exploring Mathematics in the Everyday World♦


(5 cr.) How is math relevant and useful in our lives? How do we see math in the world around us? In this course, students will answer these questions and communicate an understanding of how mathematics applies to their everyday lives. Through the study of innovative mathematical topics, students will discover the relevancy, utility, and beauty of math. Students will practice reasoning and justification to evaluate contemporary mathematical problems while focusing on representations that best fit into their own lives. Throughout the course, students will investigate math in context as they study connections between math and culture, art, architecture, and nature. While critically thinking about these topics through a mathematical lens, students will apply techniques from topics such as graph theory, scheduling and critical paths, geometry, finances, voting, probability and combinatorics, and data analysis.
