How do you make a good educated guess? How do you easily remove wrong answer choices on an exam?
In this class, we will learn how to simplify and approximate a wide range of questions ranging from quickly estimating square roots to guessing probability in drawing cards. This class will also involve mathematical puzzles and how to tackle them.
By the end of the class, students will be able to gain a deeper intuitive understanding of the mathematical and physical laws that shape our universe.
