You’re probably wondering why there is a picture of two people wrestling in a blog about International Math Competitions. Well, the reason is to convey the importance of these competitions by drawing a simple yet interpretive comparison between wrestling and how competing students wrestle with mathematical ideas, as they grow to be a community of problem solvers.

**What are AP Courses and how do you know which ones to take?**

Are you a high school student, or are you about to begin high school? If yes, it’s important to know that Advanced Placement (AP) Courses are essential when looking for that extra college credit.

Students studying IGCSE, IB, A-levels and any other national curriculum (ICSE, ISC, CBSE, etc) can sign up for these courses and give the final AP exams. However, before you decide to take an AP class for any subject, there are a few things you must know.

A STEM curriculum introduces students to science, technology, engineering, and mathematical concepts and can be taught using a cross-curricular method, such as combining robotics and mathematics.

Whether you’re a Math student undertaking your IGCSE or a Computer Science student completing the IB, anyone pursuing either of such core subjects is a part of the STEM community.

On 14th August 2021, at 5:00 pm IST, CourseLeap organized a unique and impactful webinar – How to Excel in Mathematics: High School, University and Careers. Mrs. Yogesh Dhingra, the founder of CourseLeap, initiated the session by explaining how, for a 21st – century learner, mathematics is more relevant than ever before : be it in the fields of statistics, applied math, numerical analysis or computing to begin with.

CourseLeap’s powerful vision statement as formulated by our Founder, Mrs. Dhingra, stands strong: “Our vision is to empower students and academic institutions to achieve excellence through the application of strong academic principles and practices within various international curricula.
