Discrete Stochastic Processes, Spring 2011
Discrete stochastic processes are essentially probabilistic systems that evolve in time via random changes occurring at discrete fixed or random intervals. This course aims to help students acquire both the mathematical principles and the intuition necessary to create, analyze, and understand insightful models for a broad range of these processes. The range of areas for which discrete stochastic-process models are useful is constantly expanding, and includes many applications in engineering, ph

City to City: Comparing, Researching and Writing about Cities: New Orleans, Spring 2011
City to City, as a class, will jump into the complexity of planning in New Orleans, a post-disaster city. City-to-City will ask how a post-disaster city grapple with its ideas of identity, what it is, who it represents, and how it projects its sense of self to residences, businesses, tourists, and to the outside world. In considering its people, how do city planners think about who lives where and why? At the same time, how can city planners celebrate a city's history and its culture and how can

Scope on the Skies: Urban Legends
Urban legends become widespread from people simply not asking “Are you sure?” or looking into the topic and learning more before making a decision. But urban legends are also a great way to teach students to become good questioners—skeptics if you will—whenever they hear or read about these kinds of claims. A recent urban legend is generating interest due in large part to statements made by doomsday predictors, news media, and—coming to a theater near you—a movie celebrating our demi

Green Science: Investigating green—Creating surveys to answer questions
Being green means different things to different people. Some suggest that being green means saving energy, not wasting paper towels, going solar, harnessing wind, using less fertilizer, or buying products that are organically grown. Given that being green can mean a lot of things, what does “being green” or “going green” mean to both you and your students? To find out, we need to make informed decisions by collecting data. Therefore, the purpose of this article is to become familiar with

Function Notation
Function notation is a method for writing functions that is easy to read and understand.  This video explains that functions have dependent and independent variables.  When function notation is used, the independent variable is commonly x, and the dependent variable is F(x).  To write a relationship or equation using function notation, we must first determine if the relationship is a function.  (2:04)
