Mathematics for Those Who Hate Arithmetic
Learn how to do math
Did you hate math at school? Did it consist of rote learning, sheer drudgery, and application of procedures and formulas you did not understand? Did you solve quadratic equations or simultaneous equations or trigonometry by the “miracle method”— plug in the formula given you, and the right answer miraculously appears? Welcome to the “real” mathematics; there are “aha” moments, challenges to logical thinking, and an appreciation of beautiful logical structure. We do real mathematics requiring only the simplest minimal background, and show some applications to real life. The Study Group for those 50 and over led by Fred Beutler is held on Monday February 17.
