M4368: How the heck does e^(pi*i) make any sense? in Splash Spring 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
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.
