Breindel, Clair; University of Chicago  
The University of Chicago's alternative course to calculus. The first quarter is number theory, and the second quarter is geometry and symmetry. When Bryan Clair taught the courses, he covered the history of number systems, different base number systems and nim, modular arithmetic, cryptography, and public key cryptography. In the second quarter, they did axiom systems, noneuclidean geometry, and tessellations. The main parts of this page that still function are: Clair's favorite puzzles; his syllabus; Web resources; and homework assignments. The Puzzler Of The Week is no longer active, but you can see the twenty weeks' worth from 1996.
