Problem Solving

(Taught in HSSP Summer 2011)

This class will extend basic mathematical concepts introduced in high school to a more sophisticated level and apply them to solving problems and puzzles. We will cover probability, combinatorics, geometry, algebra, and number theory. Emphasis will be placed on conceptual understanding and connections between mathematical ideas rather than on computation. These techniques will be useful in high school mathematics competitions as well as in college. All levels of problem-solvers are encouraged to enroll!
