The main focus of
this course is to introduce core ideas in statistics that are needed to make
sense of what is found in media outlets, online surveys, and scientific
journals. Most concepts are introduced in a casestudy fashion; statistical software
will be used to analyze data and facilitate classroom discussions. The goal of
this course is to foster statistical reasoning, and to assist in making
informed conclusions about topics involving data. Intended
for nonmath majors.

Beginning with Zeno's ancient paradoxes, fundamental problems on the nature of
time and space and intimately related ones regarding infinity have
bedeviled thinkers through the contemporary period. This course will provide a
beginnerfriendly tour of some of mathematics' most profound discoveries
(irrational numbers, limits, uncountability) and the
concerns (e.g., how can there be the "same" amount of whole numbers as there
are fractions, yet "fewer" fractions than real numbers?) which arise in
answering such intractable questions. Other than a working knowledge of basic
algebra, the class requires only a willingness to explore new ideas and
construct convincing arguments. Prerequisite: Passing score on Part I of the

HEG 204 
MC 
MATC 
2 credits In this course
students will explore problem solving techniques in mathematics, and use them
to develop an engaging activity or project that involves serious ideas in
mathematics and encourages the development of mathematical reasoning,
analytical thinking, and open ended exploration. This course will also address
the culture of mathematics, designing workshops to engage students of differing
backgrounds and abilities. Through readings and short written
assignments, students will explore the factors that lead to fear and anxiety about
mathematics and lower rates of participation by women and minorities in
mathematics and other STEM fields. Class activities include guest speakers and
visits to venues such as mathematics classrooms in local schools, Bard Math
Circle events, and the National Museum of Mathematics, with an eye toward
developing ways to bring math to the public in a serious and fun way.
This 2 credit course is recommended for any student who is eager to
engage with mathematics outside the classroom, and to help create a more
mathematically literate populace. Math and science tutors, Bard Math
Circle volunteers, and students interested in pursuing careers in STEM
education may find this course of particular interest, but all students with a
calculus background are welcome to join the class.
