October 2012
This course will examine how the mathematics learned in high school is applied to real life situations. Topics may include personal finance, statistics, elections, symmetry, and scheduling. Some of the applications may be how the site of the Olympic Games is chosen, why spirals occur in nature, and how statistical data is collected and how it can be used to mislead the public. The course is designed for elementary education majors, fine arts majors, humanities majors, and those social and behavioral science majors whose further courses do not require College Algebra as a prerequisite.
