|Calendar copy: A continuation of
some of the themes explored in AS/MATH 2590 3.0. Further topics
include elements of probability and statistics, the nature of
computers, elementary set theory and logic. This course will
continue in the spirit of MATH 2590 3.0. The course will provide
additional opportunities for students to develop a positive attitude
towards mathematics and to achieve success in thinking mathematically.
There will be an emphasis on problem-solving both in class and in
homework assignments. Students will be encouraged to reflect on their
activities by keeping a journal.
Many of the projects in the course will be drawn from the book Thinking Mathematically, by J. Mason, et al. (Addison-Wesley). Students should have a copy of this book. The final grade will be based on a combination of assignments, projects and participation.
