MATH 3373 Numbers, Notations, and Recreations (Spring: 1 )


Course Description

This 1-credit course applies the introductory abstract mathematics of MATH2216 to parts of the secondary mathematics curriculum, in particular topics related to numbers systems and notations, and recreational math problems in these areas. Many examples which are directly useful in secondary mathematics will be included, and we will use ideas from MATH2216 to explain and generalize them. Specific topics include applications of modular arithmetic; decimal notation (and other bases) for integers, rationals, and reals; complex numbers; Fibonacci numbers and similar sequences; binomial coefficients and their applications.
