Fall 2006 classes

Posted 21 September 2006 in class, northwestern-university, and schedule

With great pleasure I can now announce my official Fall schedule!

  • Math 310-1 : This is the probability course I mentioned before. I think it will be a lot of fun, although right now the classroom is absolutely packed. I'm pleased that I'll be saving $20 by printing the book off of the internet for free! (See my bookmarks for the link to the book's website.)

  • Math 354-1 : Chaotic Dynamical Systems. I have no idea what this class is about, although I know it has something to do with the math behind the "butterfly in china / tornado in Oklahoma" idea. (I definitely think they should just get rid of those troublesome Chinese butterflies.)

  • History 374-0 : Booyah! I ninja'd my way into this class. Jewish and Muslim Relations! The best part was where I got sick on some bad Chinese food and got to class 45 minutes late. I'll tell you what, though, my kindly professor can kibitz like the day is long. He invited the entire group to Norris after our first class, bought everyone coffee and crepes...and then talked with us for two hours.

  • Religion 221-0 : An Introduction to the New Testament. I think this will be a rewarding class. By far my favorite part of class today was where he discussed how some scholars draw a prophetic connection between the temple gate, forever shut in Ezekiel 44:2, and Mary, the virgin who gave birth in Matthew 1:22-23. Fantastic.
