Syllabus Spring 2022
In this panoramic view of mathematics, we cover each week an other area of mathematics. The focus is to look at historical developments, which includes also developments up to now. History tells us much about the structure of mathematics and about the learning of mathematics. Prerequisites are interest in mathematics and courage to look also at new things. Some calculus background is helpful, but not needed. No book is required. We will recommend some texts. The course will have a short evaluation part each class, a weekly homework component as well as a final project.
