**The definition of a math problem is a problem where the path to the solution has not yet been figured out.**

With this in mind, prepare yourselves to be mathematicians. I am not going to tell you exactly how to solve every problem ahead of time. Struggle strengthens minds. When I give you a reading assignment or a challenge problem it is your responsibility to make an effort, on your own, to struggle through the assigned task. Try your best to investigate and explore.
