Fall; Grades 10–12
Prerequisite: Accelerated Calculus or equivalent; Linear Algebra and/or Multivariable Calculus recommended (prior or concurrent); placement process may be required
Taught by: Hopkins School
This course is designed for those students who have successfully completed Linear Algebra and Multivariable Calculus (in MSON or outside). The college-level topics are chosen according to the interests of the students and the instructor and may include subjects such as differential equations, dynamical systems and chaos, number theory, complex analysis, topology, combinatorics, or the history of mathematics. Faithful to the idea of a seminar, the course requires students to be responsible for much of the mathematical inquiry. They may be expected to write papers, give presentations, create class investigations, solve problem sets, and lead class discussions.
