The Joy of Thinking New

Fun, joy, pleasure, aesthetics, intrigue, beauty, richness, texture, power, and life are words not normally associated with mathematics. However in this course, mathematics becomes an artistic and creative realm that contains some of the greatest ideas of human history-ideas that have shaped cultures. Each lesson will develop ideas by starting from commonplace observations and building from there. Mathematical thinking leads not only to insights about our everyday lives and everyday world, but also points us to worlds far beyond our own. One of the joys of life comes from playing with ideas that are not bounded by mere reality. There is no reason why our minds cannot go where no mind has gone before and live to tell the exciting tale. A mathematical point of view can take us far and bring us back home with a new perspective on everything.
