## Course description

Ever wonder where a mathematical fact comes from or why you should believe it? What does it mean to prove a theorem and how do people discover or create these proofs? In this course we see how proofs are build from the basic tools of logic; along the way we gain a better understanding of mathematical structure. The course follows a discovery approach in which students create mathematical results together via inquiry based learning while focusing on making conjectures and analyzing mathematical arguments.
