Class Experience

- Application of critical thinking to data sets
- Practice identifying and describing patterns, as well as making predictions

Students will also be exposed to 
- world languages (both commonly known languages and some less common languages)
- diversity in the world's languages and different linguistic structures
- a brief introduction to linguistic concepts (phonology, syntax, morphology, writing systems, number systems)

Some students who take this course are merely curious about languages; some are hoping to join a linguistics olympiad team in high school; and others really love to solve math puzzles and logic puzzles.
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
