Not Available. Past Classes(Clicking a class title will bring you to the course's section of the corresponding course catalog)M9771: The Axiom of Choice in Splash 2015 (Nov. 21  22, 2015)
An explanation of what the Axiom of Choice really says and a discussion of its equivalents and implications.
M9778: Understanding Infinity: Ordinals and Cardinals in Splash 2015 (Nov. 21  22, 2015)
This course deals with understanding what it means for a set to have infinite size and for two sets to have equal size (or "cardinality"). We prove Cantor's Theorem that the power set $$\mathcal{P}(A)$$ has cardinality strictly larger than $$A$$, examine the comparability of sizes by studying ordinals and cardinals (with an appearance by the Axiom of Choice), the arithmetic of cardinals, and a brief discussion of the Continuum Hypothesis.
M7309: AP Calculus BC in Delve Fall/Spring 201314 (Sep. 15, 2013)
This course prepares students to take the AP Calculus BC exam in the spring.
M6559: Introduction to Axiomatic Set Theory in Splash! 2012 (Nov. 17  18, 2012)
Set Theory serves as one of the primary foundations of mathematics, with nearly every advanced mathematics discipline requiring at least an adequate knowledge of the subject as a prerequisite. Set Theory serves to provide explanation to some of the most widely assumed things in mathematics: numbers, functions, relations, etc.
