Born out of a passion for mathematics. Aimed at the adult enthusiast.
MathCamp4Adults will expand your knowledge of and appreciation for math.
If you enjoy working with some of the classics of mathematics, think that ‘recreational mathematics’ is not an oxymoron, and want to ‘do math’ in a supportive environment with other math fans—then this is the summer vacation for you!
After all, why should the kids have all the fun?
Wide Variety of Topics
The Remainder Theorem: A Deeper Dive Infinite Series…Divergerent, Convergent? Telescoping? Squaring the Rectangle…Triangle…Lune…and finally, the Circle. Everyone knows that the Area of a Circle is πr^2. But, can you prove it? The Uncountable Infinity of the Real Numbers [Despite the countable infinity of the algebraic numbers (rational and irrational numbers) — the real numbers are uncountably infinite.] The Infinitude of Primes & Goldbach’s Conjecture (Every even number >2 is the sum of two primes.) What is the probability that two random numbers are coprime? Believe it or not, the answer involves Pi! Pythagorean Triples: Going beyond 3-4-5. Way beyond! Fibonacci and Phi (not Pi!): Divide two neighboring Fibonacci numbers and the result approaches Phi. We’ll figure out how to prove this amazing fact! Euler’s Formula: e^(i π) + 1= 0 (How can these five basic concepts be related?) The Five Basic Assumptions Needed to do Geometric Constructions Fermat’s Last Theorem Gabriel’s Horn Banach-Tarski Paradox Constructing a Mathematical Proof
