##### Try Axiomatic Mathematics, MTH 503, this summer 2019

Look for a sample in the MA in Mathematics? Try MTH 503, Axiomatic Mathematics, this summer 2019 in the 100% online format. This course will begin by solving some amusing logic puzzles, then consider the logical formalism which can help us solve such puzzles, which will lead us to some deep and beautiful mathematics and metamathematics. Metamathematics is the branch of mathematics which takes mathematics as its subject. An important metamathematical problem is: Are there mathematical truths which cannot be proved? As we shall prove (!), there are. Learn more by emailing us at graduate@umflint.edu.

##### SMALL CLASSES

You’ll complete your MA in Mathematics with a small cohort of fellow students who share your passion for numbers, problem-solving, and mathematics. This structure enables you to develop a strong support network for personal and professional development. Class projects create a collaborative environment that allows you to build practical skills.
