An invariant is a quantity whose value never changes no matter what you do to the operation under consideration. For example, when you shuffle a deck of cards, the number of cards in the deck remains unchanged. Mathematicians consider invariance one of the most important concepts children need to know as they go through their math educations. In this course, we’ll engage in problem solving, games, flowcharts, storytelling, and a hands-on exploration of the Euler Characteristic to search for and understand invariants.
