Love makes the world go round. But it takes mathematics to network in the
Information Age. From Google to Facebook; from YouTube to Netflix; from
Napster to Amazon -- every part of this Web 2.0 world is built on a
foundation of mathematics. Come find out how it all is done. You don't have
to be a math whiz to join us as we use some thinking and calculations to
grasp graphs, vectors, matrices, and page rank, but you do have to want to
understand how the Internet and the World Wide Web really work. This course
approved to satisfy one of your Core Mathematics requirements.
