MGF 1107 - Explorations in Mathematics


This course is designed for students who plan to major in fields that do not require an in-depth study of mathematics. The major topics introduced in this course are financial mathematics, exponential growth and decay, numbers and number systems, and elementary number theory. Additional topics include graph theory, modular arithmetic, voting techniques, elementary topology, and non-Euclidean geometry. Fractal geometry may be introduced. It is strongly suggested that students who plan to take MGF 1106 and MGF 1107 complete MGF 1106 first. (CBE)
