Course Title • Mathematics in the Modern World

No. of Units 3 units

Course Description•

This course deals with nature of mathematics, appreciation of its practical, intellectual, and aesthetic dimensions, and application of

mathematical tools in daily life

The course begins with an introduction to the nature of mathematics as an exploration of patterns (in nature and the environment)

and as an application of inductive and deductive reasoning. By exploring these topics, students are encouraged to go beyond the

typical understanding of mathematics as merely a set of formulas but as a source of aesthetics in patterns of nature, for example,

and a rich language in itself (and of science) governed by logic and reasoning.

The course then proceeds to survey ways in which mathematics provides a tool for understanding and dealing with various aspects

of present-day living, such as managing personal finances, making social choices, appreciating geometric designs, understanding

codes used in data transmission and security, and dividing limited resources fairly. These aspects will provide opportunities for

actually doing mathematics in a broad range of exercises that bring out the various dimensions of mathematics as a way of knowing,

and test the students' understanding and capacity. (CMO No. 20, series of 2013)
