“In topology, knot theory is the study of mathematical knots. While inspired by knots which appear in daily life in shoelaces and rope, a mathematician’s knot differs in that the ends are joined together so that it cannot be undone.” (Knot theory – Wikipedia). The mathematical study of knots is fascinating for both amateurs and experts. This hands-on course about the basics of knot theory is suitable for those with little to no background in mathematics.
