P: M119 or M211. For students who have not taken M211, M118 is also
recommended. An elementary introduction to a variety of fascinating
topics, including number theory and cryptography, groups and symmetry,
knot theory, probability and games of chance, voting schemes, and
fractals and chaos. Students will explore these topics through
mathematical experiments, individually tailored reading assignments,
homework, class discussions and a project. Section 3115 will count as
a COAS Intensive Writing section and also requires registration in
COAS W333.
