|Wednesdays (following a weekend class), time TBD, 30 minutes online (using the Zoom platform, sessions will be recorded and could be watched at a later time)|
|Class Structure||The class begins with a 45-60 minute lecture with the remaining time left as a problem session where students are encouraged to work together to solve problems based on the material they have learned as well as ask questions of the instructor and receive guidance on how best to approach the problems.
Students will be assigned 2-3 problems a week as homework with an expected minimum time requirement of 1-2 hours per week to be able to benefit from the class. However, students should not expect to achieve full mastery of the material by doing only the minimum, and to get the absolute most out of the class they should attempt more problems from the handout daily and seek advice during instructor office hours.
|Curriculum||Each semester will cover three topics from each of Algebra, Combinatorics, Geometry, and Number Theory. The topics covered over the course of two semesters follows:
|Additional Benefits||Building foundational skills of problem solving and mathematical concepts that can lead to higher-level thinking and ability to function in higher math, ability to reason through problems and concepts for the purpose of writing proofs and learning fun math!|
