CH 1010 - World Religions-West
Credits: 4.00
This course provides an introduction to the three major religions that share a common belief in the God of Abraham: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. We will look at the history, beliefs, and practices of each religion separately, as well as the way they interacted. These interactions - sometimes peaceful and creative; sometimes violent - have been a major shaping force in Western civilization, from the development and transmission of Greek philosophy through the Crusades, the Holocaust and the ongoing definition of "Western values." The study of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam leads to a deepened understanding of principles of theology and ethics, as well as current issues in religious and community life.

CH 1020 - World Religions - East
Credits: 4.00
It is often said that what is needed in modern life is more "spirituality" - a balance of inward and outward awareness that is often associated with eastern religions. But what do these traditions really mean for people who practice them? This course provides an introduction to the major belief systems and practices of eastern and southern Asia: Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism, Taoism, and Shintoism. We will look at the evolution of each of these religions, consider the ways they have inspired individuals and shaped civilizations through cosmology, ritual, literature, and art. We will also look at the ways that these traditions influence societies, including our own, that are far from the religions' places of origin.

Fat Maharajas atop bejeweled elephants, naked holy men sitting silently along the roadside, ragged children begging for scraps of food, maddened zealots attacking each other from caste hatred or religious fanaticism-these are the stark images that dominate American and Western ideas about India. But India's 5,000-year history offers much more. From the intricacies of an acient Sanskrit-based culture and the grandeur of Mughal tombs to the vibrancy of modern Bollywood films and the contending ethnic/religious identities of post independence India-india's history tells the story of how diverse populations wove together their different ways of life to create the multi-dimensional tapestry that is India today. This one semester course explores the vibrant diversity of India's past with an emphasis on its multiple legacies and the ways 20th and 21st century Indians have used these legacies to construct modern identities and a modern, democratic nation.

MA 2500 - History of Mathematics
Credits: 4.00
The course is a survey of the history of mathematics from the beginnings through the 19th Century. Special attention will be given to the interactions between culture and mathematics with emphasis on topics germane to the high-school curriculum. Students will examine each mathematical development in the context of the culture in which it arose. The students will learn that, although the truths of mathematics are necessary, their discovery is both an individual endeavor and a cultural enterprise. . The following topics will be covered: 1). Mesopotamian, Egyptian and Hellenistic mathematics, Non-European mathematics during the "dark ages". 2).Indian subcontinent, China, the Middle East, Mesoamerica. 3). early renaissance mathematics: Fibonacci, the Treviso arithmetic, bookkeeping, Renaissance geometry. 4). The birth of calculus: Descartes, Fermat, Leibnitz, and Newton. 5). The flowering of culculus: Euler, the Bernouilli brothers. 6). The origin of modern concepts of function (Fourier, Cauchy) and of number (Cantor). 7) The social and global implications of science and technology, and the impact of science, culture, and society on one another. . The NCATE/NCTM requires History of Mathematics. . The course satisfies components of General Education in the area of major culture and history. We are submitting this course for approval by the General Education and by the Teacher Education Department in the domain of Major Culture, History of Art History. . This course stresses "the social and global implications of science and technology, and the impact of science, culture, and society on one another". This course will examine each mathematical development in the context of the culture in which it arose from, so the students will learn that, although the truths of mathematics are necessary, their discovery is both an individual endeavor and a cultural enterprise.
