This course will present a number of combinatorial games and puzzles, focusing on those for which there exist mathematical techniques for solving them. (Links to previous instantiations of the course below suggest the kinds of topics we'll be covering.)

Time and Place: Tuesday Thursday 1:30-2:50 in WEH 5312

Grading will be fairly informal, and based on homework assignments and class participtation, and class presentation.
