This is a recreational math course, designed to explain some fundamental math concepts through engaging stories. It's not designed to any syllabus or classroom curriculum. I've been teaching math across levels for the past 20 years and my mission is to make math enjoyable and fun. This course will teach you basic math, logic and problem solving while having loads of fun.
As I worked with students of different ages across countries, I realized that almost everyone understands the importance of math. However, several of my students were afraid to dive in because they found math boring or scary. For me, my first love is Math. After completing my MBA and dabbling in the corporate sector for a few years - I soon went back to my first love and have been teaching math ever since. I've developed several techniques to make math teaching fun and easy to understand. Using stories to ignite the curiosity is one of the most powerful!
These are stories compiled from all over the world - I heard some of them from my grand parents, read some as fables, and created the rest on my own :). They are all engaging and witty - some will bring a smile to your face, others will make you wonder. Each story poses a practical real life problem, you get a chance to work on the problems yourself or along with your friends or family if you wish. Subsequently, I provide videos with illustrations and clear explanation of the solution for each story problem and then encourage you to explore further on your own. You learn some cool concepts like fractions, percentage, exponents, series, rates, proportions, patterns and mensuration while having fun all along!
Who this course is for:
- Middle / High school Students
- Students preparing for competitive exam
- Anyone who is interested in Math, Logic and Puzzles
- Anyone who loves numbers
- Anyone who dislikes numbers and wishes to give it another chance
