Develop an intuition for the power of exponential growth by investigating examples as diverse as- Ponzi schemes, spread of forest fires, length of passwords and cryptography, virus multiplication, AI and the singularity. In the final part of the course, students will learn about different techniques to slow exponential growth (or ‘bend the curve’).

Exponentials: Epidemics, Cryptography, Forest Fires, AI
