Geometry and the Infinite: An Interdisciplinary Mathematics Course
Craviotto, Cathleen; Farmer, Jeff
PRIMUS, v13 n3 p193-208 2003
An interdisciplinary course centered on mathematical ideas (involving infinity and geometry) is described. The course was developed by the authors, both mathematicians, as a vehicle for engaging students in learning about mathematical ideas that are rarely found in the general undergraduate curriculum. The course was offered to honors students from various majors in a once-per-week format, using group discussion, exploration activities, lectures, student presentations and a research paper.
