GEN 231 - Numb3rs in Lett3rs and Fi1ms


Mathematics in Literature and Cinema.  This course explores the connection between mathematics and the written/theatric creative arts - a connection that is both rich and deep.  Students will read fiction and watch films in which mathematics concepts provide the framework or play a pivotal role within the creative piece.  Students will also study the mathematical topics related to these works in order to better understand the author’s intent.  Lessons might include mathematical lectures, hands-on group activities, problem sets, class discussions of readings and viewings, written responses and major expository papers.

Pre-req: MATH 085   and ENGL 120  
Cross-listed with INTD 231
