"Counting and Beyond!"
May 21 and June 25
How many possible Sudoku solutions are there?  How many ways are there to scramble a Rubik’s cube?  These examples show that counting isn’t always as easy as 1-2-3!  Combinatorics explores ways of managing complicated counting exercises like these, using techniques that touch on many other areas of mathematics.  Let’s learn the basics!

Sessions in July and August will cover the following topic:

"Computation is Universal"
July 23 and August 20
Incredibly, there are mathematical questions that one is able to mathematically prove can never be answered.  Learn more about this sometimes surprisingly simple, yet mystifying, math.

Payment in the form of a major credit card is required at the time of online registration.

Space is limited, and students will be registered on a first-come, first-served basis.  There are no refunds or credits for missed classes.  Also note that ineligible students who register will not receive a refund nor will they be permitted to attend.
