An Invitation to Mathematics
MATH 163
Fall 2014
Section: 01  

This course aims to introduce students to some of the great ideas of mathematics. We will investigate a variety of topics in number theory, set theory, probability, game theory, topology, and geometry. One major goal is to give students a chance to "think like a mathematician." Thus students will be encouraged to explore and to discover mathematical patterns and ideas for themselves. We will also gain an understanding of what constitutes a mathematical proof, and why mathematicians are so insistent about them.
