Math Connections in Arts and Science – (Grade 8-10 Students)

Hidden inside art, humanities, pop culture, sports, and so many other fields, there is math. Each week, we will use math as a window to the world, studying the math hidden inside these fields. The math studied will be challenging, but grade-level appropriate, and the connections formed between math and other fields will be strong and explicit. The classes will be interactive; students will actually engage in the math of music, or the math of games, or the math of disasters, or whatever subject we happen to be studying that week.

There will be weekly home assignments and the final project.
