Math 110-111 was (and maybe still is?)
the University of Chicago's alternative course to
calculus. The first quarter is number theory, and the second quarter
is geometry and symmetry. When I taught the courses, I covered history
of number systems, different base number systems and
nim, modular arithmetic,
cryptography, and public key cryptography. In the second quarter,
we did axiom systems, non-euclidean geometry, and tesselations.
I'm now teaching Math
and the Art of M.C. Escher at SLU, so that page is a lot more
up to date. Go there.
This is no longer maintained, but is still on the web
as a resource for teachers. Things that might be of interest:
- Syllabus for 110 and
- Homework - My homework assignments.
- Resources - Web sites with information
related to the course material. Rapidly
