Course description

Reckoning with infinity is one of the major accomplishments of mathematics. Start with basic counting and work your way up to the many types of infinity, culminating in the profundity of Cantor's theorem. Explore the stunning beauty of fractals, where it's turtles all the way down, and tesselations in hyperbolic space, where the infinitely large is bounded by a simple circle.
