M707: Mathematical Modeling of Systems in Splash! Fall 2010 (Oct. 02, 2010)
"Come learn about the financial crash, potential advances in medicine, the future of energy, and what science may look like in 50 years. With the advent of computers, the practical ability to use math to represent systems grew substantially. As computers become more and more prevalent in our scientific research, a trend towards mathematical modeling is growing. There is a large amount of potential in this field, and having an understanding of the basic concepts, abilities, and limitations of modeling complex systems is a useful for future mathematicians, scientists, and engineers. This class will cover those specifics in a relatively non-technical manner while drawing from real life examples of systems modeling."

M708: Mathematical Finance in Splash! Fall 2010 (Oct. 02, 2010)
"Professional casinos or a foundation for economic growth? Come learn how math and computers have affected the finance industry and the world as a whole. This class will investigate both the methods and social worth of math in the markets. First, the basic methods and concepts used to predict markets and make money will be introduced. Then we will study the effects of investment and speculation through historical examples, both old and recent."
