Liberal Arts Mathematics for Human Flourishing

Abstract

In his retiring address as president of the MAA in 2017 (and the subsequent book released in 2020), Francis Su laid out a vision for mathematics as integral to a life of flourishing. In this talk, we will describe and share resources for an inquiry-oriented liberal arts math course informed by the vision Su describes.
