This course will discuss general methods for attacking problems in
mathematics as well as a wide range of special tricks and methods which have
proven useful.  The problems will be drawn from the elementary parts of
algebra, geometry and analysis, but of course, elementary does not always
mean easy.  There are no formal prerequisites, but some prior experience in
writing down proofs will be very helpful.
