Online Courses with Matt Katz (a better way to spend your summer!)


The course is a 5 week, intensive, online class, and it basically the same course that Matt Katz teaches to Graduate and Undergraduate students at Alfred.

It is available to everyone, and is offered for transferable credits for undergraduate students.

The course will be offered and twice this summer May-16th-June 24th and June 27th-August 5th.

The class is presented as a series of videos, that are posted Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. You can watch them at your leisure. The only restriction is that once a week we have a live discussion on the three previous video, so If you are behind, you may miss out on part of the discussion.  After the class is done, you should have access to the videos for another 4-6 weeks to go back and re-explore. Additionally, we will have readings and optional labs.
