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.
