The following is NOT HOMEWORK unless you miss part or all of the class. See the Main Class Web Page for ALL homework and due dates.

Modeling critiques for Project 4 via the theme of success in mathematics:

Plimpton Cuneiform 322 and interpreting data

Usury is Piracy Discuss 142 years compounding monthly versus annually. Each student comes up with their own formula. Lump sum philisophy. Real-life bank situation. Past student was told that her c.d. will be compounded monthly at 8% for 8 months, and is told that this 8% will apply each and every month. Let's say that she put in $1000. How much would her c.d. be worth at the end of 8 months? What did the bank really mean? Discuss other possibilities for unknowns - the time length, the rate, or the number of times compounding per year.

Riemannian geometry -> Einstein's theory of relativity. Riemann integral. One of the Millenium Prize Problems worth 1,000,000 dollars: Riemann hypothesis about roots in number theory is still unsolved, although computer calculations have shown that the first 10 trillion cases work.

Complex Numbers

Numerical Analysis to aid in the design of missile fuses and trajectory and orbit analyses for the Vanguard, Mercury, and Apollo space projects:

I found employment in government and private industry, where I had to study on my own areas of mathematics (mainly numerical analysis) needed to do the projects assigned to me. Whenever I speak to groups of young people I always advise them that learning never ends. The projects I worked on were in no way related to my thesis topic. (Granville, 2007)

My favorite challenge to teachers and children is to solve the following problem using three different methods: Rabbits and chickens have been placed in a cage. You count 48 feet and seventeen heads. How many rabbits and how many chickens are in the cage? (Granville, 2007)
