Continued fractions are interesting mathematical structures with many useful properties. Learn about how you can use continued fractions to approximate pi, discover why the golden ratio is so special, and explore chaotic systems.
M4525: Mathemagical Puzzles in Splash Fall 2015
Explore a world of mathematical thinking and problem solving in this interactive workshop. Topics will be presented and then students will break into groups to further explore the concepts for themselves. Likely topics will include geometric intuition on algebraic ideas, logic puzzles and possibly a foray into high dimensional geometry! The emphasis of the class will allow for students to grapple with problems and work with others to develop their own intuition on approaching new concepts.
H4191: Introduction to Sabermetrics in Splash Spring 2015
An introduction to the statistical analysis of baseball. Learn how we evaluate players, project outcomes, and calculate statistics like BABIP, FIP, and WAR.
B4192: A Brief Introduction to Population Genetics in Splash Spring 2015
The human genome is comprised of three billion base pairs, of which, 99% are identical across the entire human population. Only a very small fraction of the genome harbors any variation. It is this small, variable fraction that plays an important role in natural selection and can inform us about events such as demography.
With genomic sequencing technology becoming increasingly cheap and accessible to the public, we are now entering an exciting era of personalized genomics and medicine. In this course, we will learn about the signatures of genetic variation that can help us understand our susceptibility to diseases and our human demographic history.
M3776: Introduction to Sabermetrics in Splash Fall 2014
An introduction to the mathematical analysis of baseball. Find out how people evaluate players, predict outcomes, and come up with statistics like BABIP, wRC+, and WAR while learning important principles in statistics and probability theory.
