Rethinking Math: Enticing Shapes and Sexy Numbers
This two-week math course will be a composite of history, anecdote, a bit of homework, group work, jokes, art, and obviously math.
First class: we will learn some neat math that is taught in schools using numbers (blisteringly mindnumbing) but I'll illustrate using simple shapes (intuitive, titillating, and alluring).
Second class: we will leave behind shapes and push our brains to the limit as we explore the insanity of the past, present, and future number theory.
No arithmetic or math skills past the 4th grade required!
This class, like all the rest, meets at 515 Court Street, in Carroll Gardens BK.
