The purpose of this class is to introduce some core mathematical concepts to students that may not be mathematically inclined. To do so, we will begin by exploring the mathematical expression of familiar concepts in sound and music. Examples include relating the pitch and volume of a pure tone to the frequency and amplitude of a sinusoidal function. We will build on the complexity of the concepts to include Fourier spectra and how they relate, for example, to the timbre of an instrument. The other key component of the class is exploring how these same concepts are used in understanding our planet, from its internal structure to variations in its climate.
