Part of our dedication to teaching shows up in the careful design of our courses. In the major courses, we balance innovative assignments to spark creativity and engagement with full topic coverage to ensure full preparation for industry and graduate school. For INQ and May term, unique courses give students a window into diverse areas of mathematics, including the mathematics of games, the mathematics of sports, the mathematics of the television series Numb3rs, and so on. Even in major courses with standard syllabi, we include related diversions such as magic tricks and juggling. (There are several problems about juggling in our calculus book. This, of course, requires a demonstration!) Mathematics is fun!
Say goodbye to ordinary introductory courses in the core curriculum.
