Math Adventures in Problem Solving: Sequences & Series

Explore and visualize tantalizing mathematical secrets hiding in patterned lists of numbers, while opening pathways to a deeper understanding of real-world phenomena - from finance to ecology.

(This course is targeted at children entering Grades 8, 9, 10 in 2020-21)

Mathematicians are not human calculators. They are observers who learn to see what the untrained eye does not notice and thinkers who use logic to look beyond the obvious.

In this course, you will explore and visualize tantalizing mathematical secrets hiding in patterned lists of numbers, while opening pathways to a deeper understanding of real-world phenomena - from finance to ecology. 

The highly interactive sessions will involve working independently and in small groups as well as sharing and discussing your work with others. After each interactive session, students will work on their own to extend the problems further and frame questions for future exploration. Students will submit the assignments and their questions and will receive feedback and responses from the instructor.
