By NORMA SUE WOLFE
"We're not a problem-solving
type course.
"We lean a lot towards theory.
In fact, if We ever do anything
useful, it's by mistake," Prof. G. S.
Young said recently as he intro-
duced his students to Math 2.
Prof. Young believes that it
should be possible to find out
about any subject without major-
ing in it. This, he said, is the pur-
pose of his Introduction to Mathe-
matical Theory course.
"Most of my friends just laugh
when I 'say I completed Math 1'
and am now taking 2," Gaynl
Kessler, '62, said. "They ask if
I didn't take any math in high
school. Actually, it's a very stim-
ulatinghcourse - and it's hard
too," she, added.
In September, the students were
introduced to Boolean algebra, a
mathematical process of doing de-
Sductive logic. In honor of the
University's new students, Prof.
Young illustrated the process with
the followink example:
Freshmen Wish
1) All freshmen wish they could
drink beer.
2) People with sense like only
champagne.
Therefore, no freshman has
sense.
The study of Boolean algebra
was highlighted by historic side-
notes on its development. Then
the class delved into various num-
ber bases and amazed their
friends by saying that two multi-
plied by two was 10 (in the base
of 4, of course).
Ancient Egyptian multiplication
methods, an infinite number of
pool balls sliding down imaginary
chutes, proofs on prime and ir-
rational numbers and geometric
progressions were next presented
to the students.
They were introduced to pro-
gressions when Prof. Young be-
gan what they later identified as
his "walking habit." He stood
against the wall at one side of
the room, walked half way across
in two seconds and asked if he'd
ever reach the opposite wall by
consuming the same amount of
time as he continued advancing
half of the remaining distance.
Proves Doubt
His query was greeted by cries
of yes and no. Prof. Young then
proved to his doubting students
that under those circumstances,
h would never reach the wall.
They concluded the semester
with infinite sets and one-to-one
correspondences, ruler and com-
pass constructions of geometrical
figures and non-Euclidean geom-

etry. Geometry consisted of Rie-
mannian and Lobatchevskian (of
Nikolay Ivanovich fame) theories.
This phase of the course neces-
sitated imagining universes with
no or many lines through a given
point parallel to a given line. Stu-
dents also had to learn that a line
was no longer a line, a point not
a point and an angle not an angle.
Suddenly, triangles had angle
sums of more or less than 180 de-
grees.
Math 2 'Esoteric'
Math 2 opened with what Prof.
Young described as an "advanced,
esoteric" subdivision of mathe-
matics. Students who were re-
quired to have only one year of
algebra and another of plane ge-
ometry as prerequisites found
themselves deep in topology.;
Wrapped in mobius strips, Klein.
bottles, toruses, Euler characteris-
tics, and the undefinable fourth
dimension, the class suddenly,
seemed to resemble a bakery.
Next the class advanced to
group theory and is presently
working on congruencies. The re-
maining weeks will offer alge-
braic number fields and the study
of calculus.
"What we're trying to do is the
thing mathematicians do. No one
enjoys doing quadratic equations,"
Prof. Young said.
Teaches High Theory
According to =him; there's noth-
ing in the course that he studied
before becoming a 'graduate stu-
dent in mathematics.
Prof. Young also' said that there
is no logical, only a psychologi-
cal, reason why students cannot
tape this course and then begin
immediately on mathematical re-
search.
"This course is distinguished
from all other liberal arts crea-
tive math classes because it offers
a chance to show creative ability.
It is also distinctly more high-
brow," he added.
"In fact, I know of no other
undergraduate course like it in
the country," he concluded.
Sandy McAdam, '62, has found
the Boolean algebra-type logic
useful in writing courses, while
George Sparrow, '60, called it a
"tremendous" help.
"I've never really done too well
in mathematics before - couldn't
do it without understanding what
was behind it," Sparrow said. "I
saw myself undergo quite a
change after using the logical
point of yiew in outside proofs . .
such a valuable course, that I'd
like to audit it again next year,"
he said.
