This course is a panoramic view over all of mathematics. Each week covers an other area of mathematics.
The focus is to look at historical developments of mathematics, which includes also everything up to now.
History tells us much about the structure of mathematics and about the learning of mathematics.
Prerequisites are interest in mathematics and the courage to look also at completely new things.
Some calculus background is helpful but not needed. No book is required. We will recommend some.
The course will have a short evaluation part each class, a reading component as well as a final project.
The syllabus page shows a table-oriented view of the course schedule, and the basics of course grading. You can add any other comments, notes, or thoughts you have about the course structure, course policies or anything else.
