Willingness to learn
"I perfectly understand the subjects but have difficulty solving the problems or proving the theorems!"
"I understand the undergoing logic when I look at the solution/proof of a problem/theorem, but cannot think of it on my own!"
"I do not know how to prove things in mathematics!"
"I always overcomplicate the simplest mathematical concepts, and get lost easily!"
If you have a similar problem like the above ones that bothers you, THIS COURSE IS THE PERFECT CHOICE FOR YOU!
This is a perfect course for the ones who want to excel at rigorous math and who want to be a discoverer or inventor in math with a heuristic mindset!
Heuristic is the study of discovery and invention. Heuristic mindset is the basis of all discovery and invention in the history of human beings.
In this course we will see the general outline of MATHEMATICAL THINKING and MODERN HEURISTIC.
The course has 3 main parts:
In this part we will see the basic and advanced concepts in logic that lay the foundation of building rigorous mathematical understanding and arguments.
Here, we will cover general proof techniques in mathematics. Proofs techniques include:
Proof by contraposition
Proof by contradiction
Proof by cases
Existence and uniqueness proof
Proof with sets
Proof by mathematical induction
This part includes the general steps and advices in approaching problems/theorems. We will use the steps and advices mentioned in this section combined with logic and proof techniques to learn how to solve complex problems and how to prove mathematical statements.
Possible subjects are (prone to change according to the students' feedback):
Concept of Infinity
Probability and Statistics
The course will be updated several times a month with new problems and sections according to the demand of the students. Especially Modern Heuristic section will be updated every week with new concepts and problems.
I hope you enjoy the course!
