"Injecting life into real-life applications"

We often tell our students that math is everywhere, but they can rarely recognize it because they just don't know what to look for: there are no polynomials hanging out in mid-air and no ladders sliding down random walls. A map app finding the fastest route home, accuracy of the weather forecast, frivolousness of buying a lottery ticket and, most recently, spread of an infectious disease -- these are just some of the things that students experience every day that they do not think of as being mathematical. In this seminar, I will describe how I inject real modern mathematics into the set and seemingly rigid curriculum. I will share several concrete examples of mathematical stories from my calculus courses, how I weave them into the curriculum, what opportunities students have to engage with the applications and what effects this approach has had on my students' learning.
