Course Summary

On this course the class will strengthen fundamental skills and techniques learned at school, and then they will be introduced to new topics. This will ensure students will get ahead of their peers during summer.

Additionally, students will develop presentation skills, graph drawing, and they will implement mathematical puzzles and riddles to learn about general logic.

In the second week the students will give short ‘previews’ of the mathematics taught in higher classes and an explanation of the practical importance of the subject. In this way, it helps prepare students for further studies in Mathematics, and may even assist them in deciding whether it is something that they would like to study at a higher level.
