X225: Game Design Workshop in Splash Spring 2017 (Feb. 25, 2017)
Game designers face an interesting set of challenges. We'll see how to create meaningful choices for players by working to modify existing games, playing them together, and using player feedback to refine our designs. No previous experience is required. E-mail jackson.warley@pomona.edu for more information or if you have any questions.


M226: Modern Geometry in Splash Spring 2017 (Feb. 25, 2017)
In high school, geometry is often presented as an old and stagnant field of math. Recently, however, geometry has been a very active field of research, and modern geometry looks a lot different from the geometry you may have seen in classes. This class will survey some of the most exciting parts of modern computational geometry, including some important algorithms and applications from computer science to origami. Please e-mail jackson.warley@pomona.edu if you have any questions.


M134: To Infinity and Beyond in Splash Spring 2016 (Feb. 27, 2016)
The idea of infinity is easy to state, but a closer look at the concept can quickly lead to bizarre conclusions. When we are faced with the infinite, our preconceptions about number and distance often mislead us, and certain fundamental truths of arithmetic appear to break down. We will try to develop an intuition for the way that infinite quantities behave by examining some of the most fascinating and mind-blowing paradoxes of infinity.

X73: Game Design Workshop in Splash Spring 2015 (Feb. 28, 2015)
Game designers face an interesting set of challenges. Making people have fun is a difficult task and the design process often involves many trade-offs and tough choices. We'll discuss the hallmarks of good game design, play and analyze different games, and use what we learn to improve existing games or design new ones.
