MATH 0924. Honors Mathematical Patterns. 4 Credit Hours.

This course is typically offered in Fall and Spring.

News stories, everyday situations, and puzzling vignettes will be used to illuminate basic math concepts. Learn probability, for example, by discussing the gambler's fallacy and gambler's ruin, the drunkard's random walks, the Monty Hall problem, the St. Petersburg paradox, the hot hand, monkeys randomly typing on a typewriter, and many others. A similar approach involving estimation problems and puzzles will be taken in the units on basic numeracy and logic. Throughout the course, lectures and readings will examine the mathematical angles of stories in the news, suggesting fresh perspectives, questions, and ideas on current issues from google searches to the randomness of the iPod shuffle.
