Academy of Lifelong Learning

The Joy of X Revisited - Session 2

Dick Lance
Tuesdays, March 22 – April 26 (six weeks)
4:15 – 5:15 pm
Lecture/Discussion
A guided tour through the elements of math from preschool to grad school for anyone who’d like to have a second chance at the subject—but this time from an adult perspective. In this step-by-step approach, guided by the text “The Joy of X” by Steven Strogatz, the material is arranged in six parts: Numbers, Relationships, Shapes, Change, Data, and Frontiers. Although a textbook is not necessary because of handouts, attendees will benefit from reading the book by Strogatz, which is available at bookstores and as an iBook from Apple. Additional readings will be posted on the Academy website.
