UCLA Olga Radko Endowed Math Circle

4/28/2013 -- Junior Circle: Proofs (Eli Kirshbaum and Oleg Gleizer)

Some students will be called to the board to discuss their solutions to the problems from the second handout. Then we will learn a formal approach to proofs and use it to prove a few facts regarding medians of triangles in the Euclidean plane. Some students, as well as their parents, keep asking us to add more algebra to our classes. To cater to their needs, we will begin learning quadratic equations at the end of the session (if time permits).
