CMATH 1501 Problem Solving

This course focuses on the development of problem solving skills, strategies, and heuristics. Within this problem-solving context, the mathematical areas of number theory and functions, sets and logic, and combinatorics and probability are explored. Individual and group problem tasks will permit students to observe, analyze, and contrast problem-solving strategies and attitudes. Each student will keep a learning log noting insights into his/her own problem-solving ability, and written explanations to problem solutions are expected.
