M366: Sending Secret Messages in Splash Fall 18 (Nov. 04, 2018)
How can you encrypt a message so that only the intended recipient can read it? Starting from the secret codes we all used to send each other in elementary school, we'll build up to the foundations of modern cryptography, and learn the math behind how it's possible to keep secrets over the internet.
M410: Unrelated Math in Splash Fall 18 (Nov. 04, 2018)
For too long have we submitted to the tyranny of unifying themes. How many bears can you run away from forever? How can electrons prove inequalities for us? Why is traffic so bad on your favorite roads? How can physics prove the Pythagorean Theorem? And most importantly, how many of these kinds of things can we answer in under an hour?

X277: Puzzle Hunts 101 in Splash Fall 17 (Nov. 04, 2017)
Enter a world where a puzzle can be a list of pictures, a gibberish sound file, or just six words. What are the rules? Figure them out!

M208: Math Brainteaser Grab Bag in Splash Fall 2016 (Nov. 19, 2016)
Some problems are really easy to describe, addictively fun to think about, and when you finally come up with the solution, it's *really* satisfying. Come think about problems like that, and learn a little bit about math and algorithms along the way

X57: Puzzle Hunts 101 in Splash Fall 15 (Oct. 10, 2015)
Enter a world where a puzzle can be a list of pictures, a gibberish sound file, or just six words. What are the rules? Figure them out!
M58: Unrelated Math I in Splash Fall 15 (Oct. 10, 2015)
For too long have we submitted to the tyranny of unifying themes. How many bears can you run away from forever? How can electrons prove inequalities for us? Why is traffic so bad on your favorite roads? Are there theorems that are true but can't be proven? How can physics prove the Pythagorean Theorem? And most importantly, how many of these kinds of things can I answer in under an hour?
M59: Unrelated Math II in Splash Fall 15 (Oct. 10, 2015)
Same idea as Unrelated Math I (M58) except the topics will be  you guessed it  totally unrelated! So sign up for either or both of these; there will be no overlap between the two.
X69: Impromptu Speaking in Splash Fall 15 (Oct. 10, 2015)
I'm putting you on the spot: everyone who comes to this class will give an impromptu speech! Learn to think on your feet and come up with something coherent to say with little preparation. Get useful tips on how to be a better presenter.
A70: Improv Games in Splash Fall 15 (Oct. 10, 2015)
Okay, we're going to take turns writing this class description, each person says one word on their turn:
"In every life experience there will be three random lessons: why not write songs parodying all characters, unless one of them ate your shoes."
Come unleash the spontaneous, quickthinking improv artist inside. Gain confidence and problemsolving skills while having a ton of fun!
M71: What Are Higher Dimensions? in Splash Fall 15 (Oct. 10, 2015)
Our world is only 3D, so how can there be higher dimensions? Isn't the 4th dimension time? What about the 11 dimensions in string theory? We'll talk about how mathematicians can think about thousands of dimensions, try to visualize 4 spatial dimensions, and maybe think aboug some cool higherdimensional math problems
