Today’s class is about meeting each other, getting to know the class, and INFINITY, our first topic this semester. Along the way we are going to hit some of the following:

What do you think about infinity? Is infinity real or not? Is it fair to ask you to think about imaginary things in math class? What is your reaction to Hilbert’s Hotel?

P.S. Don’t forget that your first assignment, Mathematical Experiences Writing Assignment is due on Monday 1/28. You should bring a copy to class (or have your computer with you with a copy accessible). Be sure that you take a look at the syllabus so that you know what you are getting yourself into with this class!
