In this course we'll cover a variety of topics not typically seen in traditional math courses, including voting theory, financial mathematics, statistics, and graph theory. There will be an emphasis on developing these mathematical ideas to apply them to interesting problems and to model real-world situations. The goal: to learn some new math, think hard, and have some fun!
