We offer focused, miniature classes—what we will call "Math Magnifications."^{®}
These will consist of interactive learning with small (six maximum) groups of students of subjects that either
 are often missed in traditional math curricula; or
 deserve special attention or an informal motivational introduction because they are both pivotal and deep; or
 might be of interest; or
 will give students a better picture of the breadth of math.

We will choose subjects sufficiently important to warrant some repetition for students who have seen it in some form already.
Since math builds on itself, solidifying your knowledge of a subject always greatly improves and simplifies future learning.

These classes will be more traditionally pedantic than our workshops in the sense of having particular skills that students
will learn and demonstrate, on paper and on a chalkboard during the class, and in homework that we'll assign for outside the
classtime.

The cost of the class includes email discussions with students about the homework assigned and corrections of their homework.
The goal will be for them to eventually do all the problems correctly.

Each class will have a maximum of 6 participants, and will last approximately one and onehalf hours.

Here are some specific topics that we are considering offering or have offered. The number of classes spent on each topic will vary depending
on the intellectual mass of the topic; many will require only one class, some might require more.
 Fractions
 Consumer math
 Compound interest
 Number bases
 Descriptive statistics
 Use of variables
 Probability: Venn diagrams and other organizations of events
 Probability and counting
 Probability: when to add and when to multiply
 Statistical inference (confidence intervals and hypothesis testing)
 Infinite sequences and sums
 Vectors
 Matrices
 Complex numbers
 Rigid motions and symmetry
 Population growth
 Fractals
 Conditional probability
 Asymptotics (longterm behavior and equilibrium)
 Different infinities
 Rate, including unit multipliers, distance, slope, ratios, and a type of problem very popular on ACT and SAT exams
 Frequency, wavelength, and amplitude
 Quick introduction to calculus: by focusing on a parabola, we will make both the big deals in calculus—differentiation
and integration (rate of change, slope, and area) less mysterious

We welcome statements of preferences from the list above and requests for other topics.
