MATH 217. Introduction to Cultural Mathematics. 3 Credits.

This course covers mathematical concepts within the context of cultures. Mathematical ideas are investigated in topics such as number systems, calendars, art, kinship relations, divination, and games. Examples are taken from cultures in many parts of the world. The main emphasis in the course is on learning how cultural activities can be considered mathematical and often include non-trivial mathematical ideas. One or more case studies of particular cultures will also be included. The case studies will consist of investigations into several cultural aspects that have mathematical connections. Prerequisite: A grade of C or better in MATH 103. S, odd years.
