In this course, we will collaboratively work on problems from Sergey Dorichenko’s book A Moscow Math

Circle. The goals of the course (and book) are (1) to interest students in mathematics, (2) to show that

mathematics is beautiful, (3) to teach them to reason, (4) to distinguish a solution from a nonsolution,

and (5) to show students that they are able problem solvers. We will intersperse the problems with

some game problems, in which the solution is to figure out the winning strategy. There are two student

prerequisites for the course: desire and perseverance. In most Math Renaissance Math Circles, a major goal is for students to develop frustration tolerance. We recommend that students enter this course

with some degree of frustration tolerance already established.

Tuition: $225
