This track is both for math lovers and those who think they are just not a “math person”. We introduce math from a completely different angle than it’s usually done at schools. As a problem solving tool, as a language, as a tool to become better at anything that you want to do. Science, engineering, design, architecture, animation, art. Math is everywhere and it’s a lot friendlier than you might think.
These are the tools we use.
Every topic that we learn in mathematics was once unknown to mankind. It’s thanks to the effort of thousands of mathematicians that we have algebra, calculus, statistics and everything else. And all of these fields in math came to be because mathematicians wanted to solve interesting problems. Unfortunately, the spirit of math is not alive in most schools today. Students are given theory to absorb and memorize and asked to solve exercises that are variations of the textbook examples. Math is about discovery. We believe teaching math is allowing the students to discover things by themselves. If students are presented with well designed problems, they will make the right connections in their heads. That is much more powerful than any lecture or example, where someone else does it for them. And best of all, they will truly understand what they are doing and remember it.
