MATH5133 - Conceptual, Cultural, and Social Diversity in Mathematics

Credits: 3
This course challenges learners to investigate historical aspects of mathematics as they relate to diversity and numbers. Different perspectives are explored as seen in the development and applications of elementary and abstract algebra, Euclidean and non-Euclidean geometry, and elementary trigonometry and hyperbolic functions. Investigating culturally significant contributions to historical aspects establishes an appreciation for mathematics as a global experience while helping students to understand the changes in fundamental constructs.
