- Knowledge of 4 operations: Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication and Division

Description

Understand and strengthen your Math Fundamentals so that you are better equipped to learn higher math.

- It is observed that most students who cannot cope up with high school math and hence dislike it is because that do not have a sound understanding of the math fundamentals.
- The students also have questions as to where are we going to use this? Why are we learning this? So in this course we are also going to find the answers to the above questions. It would be like re-discovering math.
- This course will help you understand Algebra and Higher order math in a better way.
- This course explains fractions and decimal fractions and the underlying principle that dictates the different rules and the hows and the whys of the rules.
- Commercial math has also been given special preference as they are the everyday math we use and also at the same time lays the foundation of Algebra through the use of symbols, letters, variables and its substitution. These topics include Profit and Loss, Commission, Simple Interest and Discount.

So see you in the course.

Who is the target audience?

- Anyone who wants to pursue Algebra and higher Math
- Anyone of any age who is or remained weak in Math
- Who is interested in knowing why and how of the various concepts
- Parents of children having trouble with pre Algebra
