Paradoxes and Infinity Seminar

In this class we'll explore several popular paradoxes and attempt to wrap our brains around the world of infinity. For example, we'll discover a hotel that's never full: somehow, this hotel can always add another guest, or two, or three. We'll also run into paradoxes about goats, haystacks, pop-quizzes and more. If you're interested in mind-bending ideas and theories and have a background in basic algebra, this class is for you!

Lesson 1 Paradoxes
Lesson 2 Infinity

I really enjoyed taking the MATHCOUNTS/AMC 8 Advanced course and I definitely learned a lot. I was taught skills/tricks that could apply to several problems and therefore help me in math contests, rather than being told how to solve a specific problem only. I liked how there were several assistant teachers as well who answered my questions if I wasn't able to follow the class for a particular problem.
