Math 105  Math In Society
Welcome to Math in Society! For Fall 2020, everything will be in D2L due to our remote situation, and our class will meet on Zoom. Feel free to look below to get a feel for the content and style of the course.
Flipped Class: 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!
The free textbook is being updated to an html version. The old version is here: Math in Society
(Lowcost print copies $18 at the bookstore) + Section D1 and Section D3
We will use a free online homework system called MyOpenMath
Hybrid Class: A hybrid class is 40% in class and 60% online so we will only meet once a week and you will have more to do outside of class and online. You will be watching video lectures outside of class and there will be a class prep due on the first day. We will spend our limited class time working on the hardest problems together in groups.
