Math Explorer’s Club
Cornell runs an outreach program called the Math Explorer’s Club aimed at introducing new mathematical concepts to high school students grades 8 – 12. The home of the math explorer club is here, where you can find details of previous topics. In Fall 2015 I ran two workshops with the theme ‘What is proof?’.
- What is mathematical proof?
- Proof by contradiction
- Graph theory and Euler Characteristic
- Proof by induction
- The square root of 2 and a brief history of numbers
Alternatively, all the worksheets have been bundled together for convenience: Worksheets on Proof.
