This course allows Penn students to teach a series of hands-on activities to students in math classes at University City High School. The semester starts with an introduction to successful approaches for teaching math in urban high schools. The rest of the semester will be devoted to a series of weekly hands-on activities designed to teach fundamental aspects of geometry. The first class meeting of each week, Penn faculty teach Penn students the relevant mathematical background and techniques for a hands-on activity. During the second session of each week, Penn students will teach the hands-on activity to a small group of UCHS students. The Penn students will also have an opportunity to develop their own activity and to implement it with the UCHS students.

**MATH 2800 Entropy Math Evolution**

The goal of this is to explore a new theory of evolution developed by L. Demetrius at MIT based on the second law of thermodynamics. The essential idea is that life exists because if increases overall entropy quicker than other process es. The course will include an introduction to thermodynamics as well as to the information theory difinition of entropy. Eventually I want to apply this to other systems. For instance, I think the theory explains why political candidates who create chaos, tweet and require more bits of information to describe each day are favored by the second law. Demetrius makes a distinction between robust high entropy environments and precarious low entropy environments which is a very interesting in many different systems.
