S9528: Introduction to Quantum Mechanics in HSSP Summer 2015 (Jul. 12, 2015)
Being a particle in the world of Quantum Mechanics is tough. First, you're not just a particle. You lead the double life as a particle and as a wave, or more precisely, a ripple. When you're doing your daily run up the hill, you sometimes randomly end up on the other side. Your house has multiple addresses, depending on which space you feel like being in that day. Actually, that's pretty cool, but your friends can never be certain of where you are. And then there's you, you're never certain about anything. We are going to try to understand these troubled particles, because it turns out you and I, and the world around us, are all made up of them. In this course, we will gain an understanding for the basic concepts of quantum mechanics and develop the mathematical tools to solve Schrodinger's equation for basic one-dimensional problems, and most importantly, gasp as physics, perhaps for the first time, completely betrays our intuition. All in good fun.

M7906: The Mathematics of Love in Splash! 2013 (Nov. 23 - 24, 2013)
Love doesn't make sense. Or does it? Ever wished to find logic and pattern in this oh so mushy slushy mess called feelings? Be confused no further! Turns out love and happiness are mathematically analyzable - after all, to beat the system, you have to first learn it.
