We will study various methods and techniques in solving mathematical problems (most will require a knowledge of first degree in Math and for the others I'll provide some short reading tasks before hand). We will also prove some classical and some very modern beautiful theorems from different areas of mathematics.
Every week about 10 new problems will be assigned and we will discuss the solutions of the problems from previous weeks.
Upon successful completion of this course students should be able to:
- Have experience in solving problems
- Master techniques and methods for solving problems in various areas of mathematics.
- Learn some classical theorems and their proofs from different areas of mathematics.
