A9714: Intro to Musical Improvisation in Splash 2015 (Nov. 21 - 22, 2015)
Play an instrument/voice? Want to try/practice/experiment with improv? No prior improv experience necessary! No particular style (e.g., Pop, Jazz) is given a privileged role. So please join us for some improvsation games! Depending on the class size, we will divide the class into sections, and a battle of the bands will commence.

X9781: Products in Splash 2015 (Nov. 21 - 22, 2015)
What makes Gmail so successful as a product, when there are hundreds of other email services? What metrics can you measure to decide what features to add to a product? How can you understand what users want when they may not know themselves? Come ponder the myriad considerations that go into product development, and brainstorm your own product ideas! More questions will be raised than answered.

C9785: Functional Programming in Haskell in Splash 2015 (Nov. 21 - 22, 2015)
Come learn the basics of Haskell and why functional programming is awesome!

Z8814: Talking about Art, Gender, and Sexuality in Splash 2014 (Nov. 22 - 23, 2014)
What do the arts tell us about what gender and sexuality are? In this discussion-based course we will critically examine excerpts from literature and arts, and see how they motivate questions and shape our conceptions of gender and sexuality.

M8817: Non-Standard Analysis in Splash 2014 (Nov. 22 - 23, 2014)
What if dx were a number? Well, it can be! In this class we will explore the basics of the hyperreal number system, which provides an alternative framework for understanding calculus without all those nasty deltas and epsilons.

M7076: Projective Geometry in Spark! 2013 (Mar. 16, 2013)
Contrary to popular belief, parallel lines really do meet -- far, far away at a "point at infinity"! At least in projective space they do. Come learn why lines and points are entirely interchangeable in projective geometry, and how to do constructions with straight-edge only (no compass).
