Approx. Ages 7-10 | Fall 2021 |

We’ll explore the differences between axioms, conjectures, theorems, and proofs. (An axiom is a self-
evident truth, something that we assume to be true without having to prove it. You can’t prove something
from nothing so we have to start somewhere.) We’ll delve into set theory, formal logic, symmetry,
isomorphism, and number theory. Douglas Hofstadter’s Pulitzer-Prize winning book Gödel, Escher,
Bach: an Eternal Golden Braid will be a guiding influence. We’ll take intermissions from these
studies to engage in some nontraditional math games.
