Not Available. Past Classes(Clicking a class title will bring you to the course's section of the corresponding course catalog)X2771: The Mathematics of Juggling in Splash! 2009 (Nov. 21  22, 2009)
What on earth does juggling have to do with mathematics?!
Siteswap notation is a means of expressing juggling patterns through strings of numbers. After introducing siteswap notation, we will use it to show some interesting and unexpected mathematical properties of juggling.
S2775: What is speech? in Splash! 2009 (Nov. 21  22, 2009)
We use speech every day.
And yet, did you ever stop to wonder how the vocal chords actually WORK? Or why vowels sound different from each other? Or what the heck Tuvan throat singing is? Or how to tell size of a Rhesus Monkey without looking at it?
In this class, we show how human anatomy and fundamental concepts in physics give rise to surprising trends that we see in Linguistic Theory.
S1902: Linguistics : an intro to physiological acoustics and phonetics in Splash! 2008 (Nov. 22  23, 2008)
What is sound?
Why do some vowels appear more commonly across languages than others?
How can I determine the size of a Rhesus monkey with my eyes closed?
This seminar will use concepts from mathematics and physics to rigorously investigate the way in which we communicate using the tools of the human vocal tract.
J1903: The Mathematics of Juggling in Splash! 2008 (Nov. 22  23, 2008)
(Hobbies and Mathematics)
What on earth does juggling have to do with mathematics?!
How do you juggle "441"?
Siteswap notation is a means of expressing juggling patterns through strings of numbers. After introducing siteswap notation, we will use it to show some interesting and unexpected mathematical properties of juggling.
