S13327: Paradoxes of Relativity in Splash 2019 (Nov. 23 - 24, 2019)
Have you heard of Einstein’s theory of relativity? The theory about time dilation, length contraction, and...weird paradoxes??? This class will give a quick overview of the theory and focus primarily on resolving a few of relativity’s mind-blowing enigmas. You will come in with questions, and come out with more questions, and with your view of the world completely changed.

M12978: Divide and Conquer in Spark 2019 (Mar. 16 - 17, 2019)
If you don’t know how to do a problem, subdivide it! Learn techniques to answer many types of questions, from rolling dice to summing factors.

M12445: Solving the Cubic Equation in Splash 2018 (Nov. 17 - 18, 2018)
In elementary school, you learned to solve linear equations $$ax + b = 0$$. In middle or high school, you learned to solve quadratic equations $$ax^2 + bx + c = 0$$. But nowhere in the curriculum is there any method on solving cubic equations $$ax^3 + bx^2 + cx + d = 0$$. If you feel you have been cheated out of your math education or simply want to learn about the intriguing history of this innocuous-looking equation, this class is for you! Bring scratch paper and a creative mind.
