My name is Rachel Chang(and my Chinese name is Yu-Tzu, Chang ) I am from Taiwan , and this is my first year in Penn State, so apparently I am a freshmen. I am actually not a math person, but unfortunately I still need to take the math course. Since I was little, I just don’t understand how math is related to our daily life? Of course, we need addition or subtraction, but, for example, when we are buying something in the supermarket, we won’t need any other math such as trigonometric function. So when I see Penn State have provided this course, which is actually related to our real life, I find it very excited.
One topic that I find it interesting, which related to sustainability, is actually a video from TED. Talking about what other method we can take after people die. Most people nowadays choose cremation as a result, because it is much cheaper and convenient. However, this speaker provides us another solution to rethink what our family can do after we die. Hope you guys enjoy it. 🙂
