We offer one class per ten-week quarter, meeting Tuesday and Wednesday evenings from 6:30–8:30 PM in Palo Alto. On Tuesdays, new material is presented in an interactive lecture format. On Wednesdays, there are problem sessions, where students work in small groups in order to solidify their understanding of material presented the day before, and also go over problems from the previous week. In the last week, students give presentations on a topic of their choice related to the class material. Students also write an expository paper on the topic of their presentation, and especially dedicated students will have the opportunity to work on open research problems.
In the 2015–2016 year, we offered classes on abstract algebra, cryptography, and complex analysis. In the 2016–2017 year, we offered classes on combinatorial game theory, proofs from THE BOOK, and ring theory/algebraic geometry.
In the future, we will offer many other classes, based on the interests of students and teachers, including various classes on number theory, analysis, combinatorics, topology, probability, game theory, and more.
We are now accepting applications for the Fall 2017 class on combinatorics. Click here to apply! Applications are due by July 30th.
