In this class, students will solve mysteries, untangle prickly paradoxes, and learn the tools of mathematical logic. Some of the greatest discoveries in science and math have come from careful observation, creative thinking, and the application of the tools of formal logic that we will be learning. Students will use mathematical logic to solve murders and find their way out of escape rooms. We will unpack tricky paradoxes and solve logic puzzles that connect to open problems in math and computer science. While the tools we will be using may seem like fun and games, they have far-reaching applications in the real world. Join us if you are interested in making better arguments, understanding more clearly the objective truths of science, or simply enjoy a great logic puzzle.
Mathematical Logic: Reasoning Through Paradoxes and Puzzles (WAITLIST)
For Rising 6th – 8th Grade Students
Your Summer of Discovery Awaits
MITY’s ExplorSchool provides rising 6th-8th grade students a unique opportunity to investigate new topics and dive deeper into their passions at a level that is challenging and motivating. Intellectually curious students take two classes, one in the morning and one in the afternoon, enabling them to explore different disciplines, experience things that are not possible within a normal school setting, and forge new friendships.
