Para quién es esta clase: This ten-week course is designed with two particular audiences in mind. First, people who want to develop or improve mathematics-based, analytic thinking for professional or general life purposes. Second, high school seniors contemplating a mathematics or math-related major at college or university, or first-year students at college or university who are thinking of majoring in mathematics or a math-dependent subject. To achieves this aim, the first part of the course has very little traditional mathematical content, focusing instead on the thinking processes required for mathematics. The more mathematical examples are delayed until later, when they are more readily assimilated.

Great course! I enjoyed the course very much. Learned a lot about writing proofs.


Here you will learn the basic skills for writing and judging proofs.

At core, the taught material consists of the content of Keith Devlin's book 'Introduction to Mathematical Thinking', which is available for low fee. But at this course are come lots of students together and they can help each other at struggling through the plenty exercises which accompany the lectures. And there is also some help from several mentors.In the last week you have to write your own proofs at ten problem sets and peer reviewing them for lots of other students.

negatives: Because the instructor suggested group building over the net, It happened at my course that the course participants was split to plenty small groups. And although it's a pretty good Idea that the Instructor presents the learning stuff at the videos by writing it on a small sheet with a pen, his handwriting is sometimes so terrible that it's hardly to read.
