Logic and Problem-Solving

Run by The Harker School Ages 14-15 yrs

Prerequisites: None

Fee: $350

This course is for those who delight in solving challenging math problems and who would like to further develop both their problem-solving and their logical-reasoning skills. Problem solving is the activity of the mathematician, and logical reasoning will frame our activities. Though we will examine how formal math can be used directly to help solve certain mathematical problems, we will find that logical reasoning is not all there is to problem-solving. Good problem-solving skills include ingenuity, creativity, and the ability to apply a variety of strategies and techniques. In this course, students will practice using fundamental tools and standard techniques for problem-solving, and they will be given the opportunity to develop their mathematical ingenuity through practice on problems in a wide range of difficulty. The mathematical subject areas that the problems are drawn from will be varied, but there are no prerequisites for this course. All you need is curiosity and willingness to use your imagination and intuition!
