M4368: How the heck does e^(pi*i) make any sense? in Splash Spring 2015 (Apr. 11 - 12, 2015)
You may have heard that e^(pi*i) = -1. What?!?! I made a video giving a non-calculus intuition for why this is true here: http://youtu.be/F_0yfvm0UoU, and in this class I will go into more detail and discuss the intuition outlined there.


M3836: Into the fourth dimension in Splash Fall 2014 (Nov. 08 - 09, 2014)
Every wondered what exactly people mean by the "fourth dimension"? Have you ever been skeptical of those who say it's impossible to visualize anything beyond three dimensions? Bollox! I say it absolutely is possible for humans to visualize higher dimensions, and while I believe it takes longer than one short class to do so, I can at least explain how you might start. We will first go over the basics of what the fourth dimensions is, then I will devote most of the class time to going through a series of visualizations for various four dimensional shapes and figures. If you enjoy any one of math, philosophy, pretty pictures, or having your mind twisted in a knot, this class is for you.
