MATHS-200

What is infinity? What is the fourth dimension? (Or the 1.5th?) What is a fractal? How can math be used to study knots or wallpaper patterns? Was Euclid right that parallel lines can never meet, or is the universe shaped differently than he thought? We'll use math to discuss these and other fun questions. Along the way, we'll discover areas of math which are beautiful as well as useful, and we'll develop our skills as effective thinkers. The only prerequisite is your willingness to participate and have fun.
