Mathematics is a subject that is best understood through the lens of its problem solving techniques. Math is less of applying formulae and more of an art. It is a continuous learning approach, which starts from the formulation of the problem statement. Problem solving is a skill that is acquired through patient thinking and experience. The Art of Problem solving (AOP) course exposes students to a variety of proofs and problems, including famous theorems proved by great mathematicians.
This course will help students go beyond simply numbers; to inspire and to develop the ability to manipulate variables and to discover patterns or approaches leading to new insights for problem solving. This will broaden their knowledge and understanding of well-known results and how to apply them in various new situations – a useful skill for further progress in understanding 21st century mathematics.
Each module in this course picks up an interesting topic and makes various meaningful connections to it for deeper conceptual understanding. Much of mathematics is developed in response to the needs of other disciplines. Problems will include real-life applications. These problems come packed with fun activities, which involve students working in groups, with the use of technology and modern software to understand the mathematical principles.
This course assumes a basic knowledge of geometry and algebra. The course focuses on a holistic upgrade in math reasoning skills, thereby laying a strong foundation for many competitive exams such as American Math Competition (AMC); The Center for Education in Maths and Computing, University of Waterloo (CEMC), and advanced Math courses in high school. It also aims to help students adapt to mathematical applications and technology that can enhance understanding of these concepts.

This course was completely different and much more fun from school math. I learn’t a lot more and this course has really expanded my knowledge in math to a great extent.
These classes were very helpful for building my foundation for Maths. They not only taught the “what” aspects of Math, but more importantly the “why” aspect of Math, through multiple activities and videos that always kept me engaged. They had scheduled doubt clarification sessions (according to our preferred timings) and they solved every question I had in great depth! The teachers made the class extremely engaging and I could not be distracted from Maths for a single second. Lastly, they always gave a good amount of homework to practice, which really helped me remember these Maths concepts. Overall the “Art of Problem Solving” course was one that I will never forget!
