Professional math will introduce the applications of mathematics in areas such as cryptography, history, music, weather, architecture, baseball and crime scene analysis. Students in this course are not expected to have especially strong math skills or scientific backgrounds; most calculations will be elementary although advanced material is taught as needed. Students will be exposed to number theory, trigonometry and calculus, group theory, geometry, probability, and mathematical modeling. Concepts will be applied immediately to the problems that motivated them.
