Welcome
to Math 105
Math
in Modern Society
Brief Description: This course shows how mathematics,
including some of the mathematics learned in high school and some mathematics
which is different from what was learned in high school, can be applied to
practical situations. Topics covered
are chosen on the basis of applicability, accessibility to students with a
limited mathematical background, and use of relative new mathematical
techniques. The topics include money
management, statistics, elections, networks and traveling salesman problems. Among the applications covered one might
see how the site of the Olympic Games is chosen, how the voting is done to
select a movie to win an Academy Award, how the lending process is done when
purchasing a house, and how statistical data can be collected and used to
mislead the public. The course is
designed for students majoring in disciplines that require little or no
additional mathematics or mathematics related classes.
