In the Fall 2016 semester, a Mathematics and Digital Art course was taught at the University of San Francisco for the first time. After a brief overview, course content for the first half of the semester is presented chronologically. Then the use of Processing and student Final Projects is discussed, as these two course components comprised the second half of the course. The intent is to give someone interested in teaching such a course a sense of what it would look like in practice. Several examples of student work are also presented.
