MATH 022 SC - Great Ideas in Modern Mathematics


Advances in mathematics have had far reaching influence across academia and society. A mathematical approach to problem solving is critical in the ever increasingly technological world in which we live. In this class we will study some of the most important results and ideas in modern mathematics. Topics will include the infinite and countability; knot theory and topology; dynamics, fractals, and chaos; symmetries; four-dimensional geometry. Additional topics may include cryptography; irrational and transcendental numbers; tilings of the plane; probability, expected value, and coincidence; and fair division. This course will satisfy the Scripps Math general education requirement. The course cannot be used to satisfy requirements in the math major or math minor.

Course Credit: 1.0
