M5696: Caffeinated Calculus in HSSP Spring 2012 (Feb. 18, 2012)
In this class, you will learn to use Calculus, for fun and profit! We'll start by trying to understand how Calculus is a very natural result of nature and geometry, and not something scary and random. In fact, Calculus can be our best friend when we try to solve various problems, most notably in optimization. Ever wondered how you can maximize profit or minimize wastage? With the power of Calculus, you can convert your everyday problem into a math problem, and solve it using some very simple tools. By the end of the course, you will realize the role math plays in everyday life, and more importantly, how we can use calculus to hack it!
