This course is meant to give you a chance to work on interesting things that you wouldn’t get to do in a typical, math computer science, or physics course. You will be work on cross-displinary problems and learn skills from all three fields
You will generally work on the problems in groups. After your solutions are done, your group will present its solution to the class. You will often get more than one cycle to work on a problem.
On some class days we will have observers from the MapCores FYS class who will come to listen to your solutions.
In this course you will gain:
The grade for this course will be based on your group’s solutions to the problems and your presentations of those solutions.
