This paired learning community is geared for those whose majors do not require a specific math class and who would like to explore cultural issues in depth. These courses will examine stereotypes of gender, race, and class from ancient to modern times through the lens of mathematical studies. We will examine how these three categories intersect and become intertwined in social reality. How can math be used to describe and analyze those realities?
