    This MOOC deals with a cross-cutting theme in engineering and architecture – curves – approached from the point of view of mathematics and linked to other subjects: construction, industrial design and production, and road safety. The course combines rigorous training with the excitement that comes from posing a problem, together with the discovery of its solution and practical applications to sustainability challenges.

    Each of the three subjects consists of three modules with the following structure:

    The first, introductory, module describes the practical setting and a real world example or problem whose study involves curves.

    The second module presents the materials, ideas, and methods that will be used. The third module serves to deepen understanding and describe connections with related topics. Some modules finish with a collection of links to go further and some videos to know more about curves and surfaces in connection with sustainability issues.
