Beginning with non-mathematical functions, then function machines, and finally – probably – ending with algebraic expressions and graphing on the coordinate plane, we will have fun discovering what a function is and how to express it in various mathematical ways. I say “probably” because Math-Circle is student-directed and the students’ mathematical interests could take them elsewhere once I present the initial premises. At the same time, we’ll challenge ourselves to solve some of mathematician Raymond Smullyan’s logic-based Inspector Craig mysteries. [NOTE: the functions part of this course also ran in 2017.]
