Introduction to Mathematical Thinking About the Course NOTE: For the Fall 2015 session, the course website will go live at 10:00 AM US-PST on Saturday September 19, two days before the course begins, so you have time to familiarize yourself with the website structure, watch some short introductory videos, and look at some preliminary material. The goal of the course is to help you develop a valuable mental ability – a powerful way of thinking that our ancestors have developed over three thousand years. Mathematical thinking is not the same as doing mathematics – at least not as mathematics is typically presented in our school system. The course is offered in two versions. Course Syllabus Instructor’s welcome and introduction 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. Recommended Background High school mathematics. Suggested Readings There is one reading assignment at the start, providing some motivational background. There is a supplemental reading unit describing elementary set theory for students who are not familiar with the material.
