Why Take This Course?
Learning math is more than working with numbers—math gives you the tools to be an awesome problem-solver and critical thinker in every area of your life. In this course, you’ll study tools to help you learn the language of math and how to make sense of it, including equations, linearity, functions, congruence and similarity, geometric transformations, and exponents. You will also get to dig into the works of historical math masters including Euclid, who will teach you the skills to win any argument and become a logic ninja.
