Book DetailsMSRI Mathematical Circles LibraryVolume: 25; 2021; 196 ppMSC: Primary 00; 11; 12; 20; 26; 40; 97
This book is a translation from Russian of Part I of the book Mathematics via Problems: From Olympiads and Math Circles to Profession. Part II, Geometry, and Part III, Combinatorics, have been published in the same series.
The main goal of this book is to develop important parts of mathematics through problems. The author tries to put together sequences of problems that allow high school students (and some undergraduates) with strong interest in mathematics to discover and recreate much of elementary mathematics and start edging into the sophisticated world of topics such as group theory, Galois theory, and so on, thus building a bridge (by showing that there is no gap) between standard high school exercises and more intricate and abstract concepts in mathematics.
Definitions and/or references for material that is not standard in the school curriculum are included. However, many topics in the book are difficult when you start learning them from scratch. To help with this, problems are carefully arranged to provide gradual introduction into each subject. Problems are often accompanied by hints and/or complete solutions.
The book is based on classes taught by the author at different times at the Independent University of Moscow, at a number of Moscow schools and math circles, and at various summer schools. It can be used by high school students and undergraduates, their teachers, and organizers of summer camps and math circles.
In the interest of fostering a greater awareness and appreciation of mathematics and its connections to other disciplines and everyday life, MSRI and the AMS are publishing books in the Mathematical Circles Library series as a service to young people, their parents and teachers, and the mathematics profession.
Titles in this series are copublished with the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI).
ReadershipHigh school students and their mentors and teachers.
