Interesting Maths Topics

Hello everyone. I'm going to be running a maths club when I go back to college (in September), so has anyone got any suggestions for interesting (but, not overly complicated) maths topics that I could cover? Any ideas would be great, thanks :)

It is a great expirience open a math club in your school, congrats! I won't recomend you a certain topic because all topics could be interesting. Instead of I suggest search beauty problems which impulse them developing creativity. Also try to show them surprising solutions in order to keep them interested and without boring.

Some topics are: -Pascal triangle and Newton's binom -Polynoms -Vieta's formulas -Medians -Constructions(geometry) -Clever manipulations (algebra) -Counting of two ways -Coloring on boards -Game strategies (tic-tac-toc, timbiriche, four in a row) Paola Ramírez · 1 year, 2 months ago

How about the topic covered by this note?

Constructible Regular Polygons

It's a great tie-in for a wide range of subjects in mathematics, including Galois Theory. You mentioned "complex numbers with geometry", right? Michael Mendrin · 1 year, 2 months ago

Gabriel's horn is very interesting but a little complex.I would choose complex numbers with geometry and proving fundamental theorem of calculus at first but take more complex topics later Clinton Kelly · 1 year, 2 months ago

@Clinton Kelly Anything in particular. I am currently thinking of doing complex numbers with geometry, fractals, Gabriel's Horn, proof of the Fundamental Theorem of calculus etc... Curtis Clement · 1 year, 2 months ago
