Title: Mathematics of Games/Puzzles
Course Section Number: MAT-178-01
Department: Math
Description: 2nd Half Semester This course serves as an introduction to mathematical thinking through examples in games and puzzles. We will look at the mathematical structures in puzzles like Rubik's cubes and Sudoku. We will also study mathematical games, that is games involving only logic, strategy, and chance. One of the main goals of this course will be to develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills that will aid you outside of mathematics courses. This course does not count toward the mathematics major or minor. It will count toward the quantitative literacy requirement.
