LAMS201 Algebra and the Computer 3 cr.


Algebra is introduced in a context relevant to adults working as artists and designers. Data sets from practical applications are used to develop a numeric, verbal, graphic and symbolic understanding of linear, quadratic and exponential functional relationships. Applications include use of data sets by artists, design of parabolic devices, motion graphics, tumor growth, pollution decay, and financial issues such as taxation, bank interest and credit card debt. Custom software is used to explain algebra in an interactive visual way particularly suited for visual thinkers, and commercial spreadsheet software is used for processing and graphing data.
