Abstract:
Math 034, The Mathematics of Money, is a new course that the mathematics department began offering this semester for undergraduate students in non-technical majors who need general education credits in quantification. This course provides an introduction to the uses of mathematics in personal finance applications. This seminar will describe the overall goals and structure of this new course, discuss the topics covered in the course, and present some example problems that students solve to master the material in the course. MATH 036, Insights Into Mathematics, is a course designed for students in non-technical majors who need general education credits in quantification. The course provides examples of mathematical applications in many areas including voting theory, fair division, apportionment, Euler and Hamilton circuits. This seminar will provide more details and examples of the course content and the teaching techniques used to actively engage the students in the course.
