Welcome - Mathematical Problem Solving: Techniques & Methods MATH 3790   Mathematical Problem Solving: Techniques & Methods
CREDIT HOURS: 3
This class will provide an introduction to techniques for solving mathematical problems of the sort encountered in competition (such as the mathematical olympiad or the William Putnam competition). There will be self-contained modules developing techniques from several branches of mathematics including number theory, combinatorics, geometry and analysis. The majority of the class time, however, will be devoted to examining examples. Students will be expected to prepare and present in class solutions to assigned problems.
