M7499: Basics of RSA Encryption in Splash! 2013 (Nov. 23 - 24, 2013)
Learn about the basic theory behind a widely used cryptographic algorithm that allows transfer of information securely and conveniently between two parties!

X6244: The Amazing Race: Pokemon Regions in Splash! 2012 (Nov. 17 - 18, 2012)
Ever watch the show The Amazing Race? Want to travel across the Pokemon world like you never have? Think you know more Pokemon trivia than anyone else? Welcome to The Amazing Race: Pokemon Regions, a competition pitting you and others in a race, guided by collected clues as you pass stop after stop throughout the world of Pokemon! In a style similar to that of the show, you will be asked to perform various tasks within your game that test your Pokemon knowledge as you race around the Kanto and Johto regions!

M6551: Introduction to Fourier Series in Splash! 2012 (Nov. 17 - 18, 2012)
Interested in waves? Oscillations? Approximating period functions with arbitrary precision with JUST sine and cosine? If yes, come and learn about Fourier series, a useful tool with notable applications in waves, electromagnetism, and much more!

M6638: Problem-Solving, Solving Problems! Using Linear Algebra in Other Fields in Splash! 2012 (Nov. 17 - 18, 2012)
Math in high school may seem very hierarchical, with one field building off the last. But really, fields of math are arranged more like a network, and solving problems in one may require material from another. We'll get to see and solve some cool examples of this as connections between linear algebra and other fields. After going over the theoretical foundation of linear algebra, we'll use the theorems we've developed to solve puzzle problems in seemingly unrelated topics. Flex your brain and have some fun in this half-lecture, half-problem solving class!

X5421: The Amazing Race: Pokemon Regions in Splash! 2011 (Nov. 19 - 20, 2011)
Ever watch the show The Amazing Race? Want to travel across the Pokemon world like you never have? Think you know more Pokemon trivia than anyone else? Welcome to The Amazing Race: Pokemon Regions, a competition pitting you and others in a race, guided by collected clues as you pass stop after stop throughout the world of Pokemon! In a style similar to that of the show, you will be asked to perform various tasks within your game that test your Pokemon knowledge as you race around the Kanto and Johto regions!

M5424: Lapras used Transform! The Easy Way to Solve Differential Equations in Splash! 2011 (Nov. 19 - 20, 2011)
Differential equations can be a real pain in the asymptote, chaining you into countless uses of the product rule or ugly integration by parts. But with the wonderfully straightforward tool known as Laplace Transforms, few linear differential equations can stand in your way! In addition to teaching you this powerful tool, we'll also explain how it can be applied to unusual functions like piecewise, step, and impulse functions, and we'll teach you useful tricks for partial fractions (a technique that was invented specifically for Laplace Transforms).
