My Sophomore Interdisciplinary Studies course, Genius, Madness, and Creativity, has a huge project coming up which I am mildly stressed out about. However, the best part is that I got to pick my subject matter. My presentation is on a famous Indian mathematician named Ramanujan.
He made lots of awesome contributions to mathematics, but the part I have enjoyed most about the project is learning about his creative process in mathematics. He used really unique ways to come up with his conjectures.
This project has made me realize that sometimes convention is not the most important thing. The most important thing is creativity and imagination. Thus, I am inspired to try and stretch my own creativity by taking more fun music courses next semester.
I really enjoy how the classes at McDaniel change your perspective. I cannot wait until next year’s courses!
