About The Course

This course will demonstrate, with several examples, the need for and benefits of abstraction in mathematics. The examples would include school level problems in arithmetic and geometry, however, their resolution will make us question, and develop new understanding of, notions of numbers and arithmetic as well as realize commonality between numbers and geometrical objects.
