The Mathematics of Being Human

While working together on a production of Tom Stoppard’s Arcadia at The Folger Theatre in 2009, two UMBC professors began a meaningful collaboration that has manifested into a seminar for Humanities Scholar Program students called "The Mathematics of Being Human," as well as a play of the same name.
