MATH 12 — Math in the Wild: Using Mathematical Thinking to Solve Messy Real-World Problems
Much of this course will be a conversation between the two instructors, bringing in members of the class at intervals. Throughout, we will find ourselves constantly reflecting on what exactly is mathematics and what makes it so incredibly powerful as a tool to understand and achieve things in the world.
This course requires knowledge of high school mathematics through Algebra 2. While calculus is not required, some familiarity with calculus and calculus-based mathematics will be beneficial.
In addition to co-teaching this course, Keith Devlin will host a free public lecture titled “Finding Fibonacci” on October 17.
Grade restriction: No letter grade.
