Transformational Mathematics is different from any math course that most have ever seen. This is really a walking tour through many of the basic languages and principles of mathematics. Our desire is to end up not only more comfortable with mathematical concepts, but hopefully enjoying, and actually finding amazement in these very ancient forms of human inquiry. Furthermore, we hope to feel the sort of comfort that allows us to employ mathematical concepts in our daily lives. And for some, we hope to inspire further and deeper investigation into these mathematical concepts.
By the end of this course, you should be able to:
"I loved this course — it was very well planned and the gradual increase in challenge is very thoughtful."

Prior to coming to Ubiquity University, Dr. McGarrity taught algebra at Waubonsee Community College for six years after receiving his Masters of Arts degree in Education, with a concentration in mathematics, from Loyola University Chicago.
Through Transformational Mathematics, Dr. McGarrity encourages us to take a fresh look at mathematics before heading out into the world. Overcoming any fears or mathematical discomforts, Dr. McGarrity inspires us to re-acquaint ourselves with the languages and principles of mathematics, so that we might speak them freely and confidently in our daily lives. He has created this course not just about transforming our understanding of mathematics, but that by doing so, we might truly transform our lives. His students at Waubonsee and Loyola felt the transformative energies that underlie this course.
All courses and all Learning Journeys are open to lifelong learners and all students for credit toward their degrees and also for certificates.
