It is surprising how mathematics can be used to analyze the world around us and to make predictions. For example, Newton’s simple law of cooling can help you determine when your coffee will be cool enough to take a sip. In this course, we explore the idea of mathematical modeling and then brainstorm together on a topic chosen by the class.

Kathleen Fowler is an associate professor of mathematics at Clarkson University. She enjoys teaching and using mathematics to find optimal ways of doing everyday things!

NOTE: Bring pencil, paper and a calculator (if you have one).
