Math 105  Math In Society  Hybrid Course
Welcome to Math in Society! For Fall 2022, all videos and materials will be in D2L. Feel free to look below to get a feel for the content and style of the course. You can see previous syllabi below as well.
Flipped InPerson Hybrid Class: See the old intro video to the right for an example of my style. You will be watching video lectures outside of class and working together in a group on problems and activities during class. I will send you the syllabus and information before the first day of class. I look forward to meeting you! Free online textbook: Math in Society You can order a lowcost print copy from the bookstore We will use a free online homework system called MyOpenMath Previous Syllabi Fall 2021 Syllabus  Wednesdays 
This is an older hybrid intro video. I will update this before Fall 2022 begins. We will be meeting for 3 hours a week instead of 2. You can use this to get a general idea of the fit of this course for your learning style but not the specific assignments.

Hybrid Class: Make sure this is the right format for you! The hybrid class is 60% in class and 40% online so we will only meet once a week and you need to have more selfmotivation and responsibility. The guideline is 12 hours per week outside of class. People vary so you may need more or less time. You will be watching video lectures outside of class and there is a class prep due on the first day. We will spend our limited class time working on the hardest problems together in groups.
