An Invitation to Mathematics
MATH 163
Fall 2009 not offered

One of the main goals of this course is to introduce a sampler of the many roles mathematics plays. We will investigate "real world" questions such as: How is information coded and protected? What is the likelihood of drawing an inside straight in poker? What voting system is best? This will allow us to consider a range of topics such as probability, numerical patterns, prime numbers, cryptography, and game theory.
