Math for Human Flourishing
A critical examination of mathematics as a vehicle for human flourishing. We consider how mathematics supports the pursuit of intellectual and moral virtues such as truth, beauty, and justice by feeding the human desire to explore, play, struggle, and create something permanent and powerful. Students will investigate the cultural history and social construction of mathematics as a discipline, how mathematics benefits society, and how it can be taught in ways that better reveal its human dimensions.
