Before class starts in earnest, make sure to familiarize yourself with the Course Syllabus, Moodle, and all of the course resources available to you for these next few weeks. Do not assume anything: if you are not sure about something, ask your instructor!
ACTIVITY 1 TEAM DISCUSSION: WHAT IS MODERN MATH?
Everyone has some preconceived notions of what it’s all about because everyone has taken a math class before. To get things started in this class, we want to find out two things:
What do you think Modern Math is?
What do you want Modern Math to be?
With your group, discuss these two questions. Be prepared to report out to class.

Continuous Fair Division Methods: Your note booklet and the Task videos describe methods for dividing up things that are very “cuttable.”
With your group, come up with a way to fairly divide the four items provided. Download worksheet.
