Who is this class for: This ten-week course is designed with two particular audiences in mind. First, people who want to develop or improve mathematics-based, analytic thinking for professional or general life purposes. Second, high school seniors contemplating a mathematics or math-related major at college or university, or first-year students at college or university who are thinking of majoring in mathematics or a math-dependent subject. To achieves this aim, the first part of the course has very little traditional mathematical content, focusing instead on the thinking processes required for mathematics. The more mathematical examples are delayed until later, when they are more readily assimilated.
