Mathematical Logic & Puzzle Solving–Not Offered 2022-2023
This class explores the idea that learning can be understood simply as the process of finding the solutions to a series of puzzles. We will look specifically as to how this idea applies in the area of mathematics by solving, talking about, and creating a variety of puzzles. Using logic, number, and word puzzles, platform puzzlers, puzzle video games, Escape the Room, Rubik’s cubes, geocaching, and more, we will seek an understanding of what drives individuals to want to solve puzzles and how that relates to learning mathematical concepts.
Open to all students who have completed Algebra I and Geometry.
