Problem solving is both an art and science; it is a most intellectually entertaining activity. In this course, we will bring joy and rigor simultaneously to solve challenging math problems. The class will look at problems in a wide range of difficulty from diverse range of areas: logic, combinatorics, inequalities, probability, number theory, geometry, algorithms and puzzles. We will acquire a toolkit of useful techniques and problem-solving strategies and also develop a disciplined style of thinking that is both creative and logical. There will be ample opportunity to apply these tools and sharpen your thinking skills in solving intriguing problems and puzzles, discuss with your peers and present your solutions. Besides elementary algebra, the only prerequisite for this course is your strong craving for fun.
