This course takes a mathematical approach to playing games and solving puzzles. In this course, you will be introduced to all kinds of games, from games of pure strategy (like chess) to games of pure luck (like many casino games) to games that mix strategy and luck (like blackjack, backgammon, and poker). You will analyze puzzles that have stumped people for centuries to modern favorites like Sudoku and Rubik's Cube. You will improve your ability to play these games and solve these puzzles, but you will also learn some interesting mathematics along the way.
