MATH V 2002y The Magic of Numbers

In this class, we will cover many interesting aspects of math that can be used in everyday life. The goal will be to cover fun, exciting topics that don't require any prerequisites, but still capture some of the mystery of mathematics. We will emphasize discovering concepts in combinatorics (the mathematics of counting), geometry (the mathematics of shapes), number theory (the mathematics of whole numbers) and more. This class will be interactive and include demonstrations when possible.
