M1151: Countable and uncountable infinities. in Splash Fall 2023 (Nov. 18, 2023)
In this class we will be talking about one of the core concepts of set theory, cardinality (aka the size of a set), and more specifically, the size of infinite sets. The concept of infinity is one most people are familiar with, however some infinities are actually larger than others! Come to this class if you want to learn the difference between countable and uncountable infinities.

M1152: Turing machines and the Halting problem in Splash Fall 2023 (Nov. 18, 2023)
Computability theory is the branch of mathematical logic that's concerned about what is and is not possible to achieve in math via algorithm. In this class we will be looking at a couple core concepts of computability theory: the basics of Turing machines, what it means for a function or set to be computable by a Turing machine, and a couple examples of incomputability via the halting problem.
