Mathematical Logic and Proofs

What skills do we use to solve the toughest riddles? What is the best way to communicate mathematical ideas, such as the countable infinity of natural numbers to others who may not be as familiar with such topics? What mathematical applications allow us to analyze business practices, consumer trends, and design new product prototypes? If you see yourself as a future scientist, engineer, or mathematician, it is important to lay the foundation of understanding logic and proofs now. Discover how mathematical reasoning will impact your academic trajectory.

Learn about quantitative and qualitative methodologies and a selection of methods
researchers may use to investigate a phenomenon. Further your abilities in data & digital literacy by developing skills to create and communicate data as well as making informed aesthetic and rhetorical choices related to digital project design and creation. Discover how visual proofs use shapes like polyhedra to allow mathematicians to physically verify theorems. Participate in group debates and TED-style talks to enhance your communication skills and have the opportunity to present to your peers as well as members of the Duke community.

Through various methods of mathematical proof, explore negations, biconditionals, Cartesian products and more in the field of math. Engage with guest speakers from Duke to gain more knowledge about how mathematical reasons extend beyond the classroom. Acquire these abilities and solve the biggest riddle of them all: how to make the most of your summer!
