Have you ever followed a Fly?
Most students learn about Co-ordinate geometry in Grade 7 or Grade 8 and this is how we usually introduce this topic to them: We draw two perpendicular lines on the graph, name the intersection point as 'origin' and introduce x & y coordinates to represent any point on the plane. Then, we tell them the... Continue Reading →
Units are the Game Changers in Maths!
Let us take a look at a grade 3 problem: Find the perimeter of a rectangle whose length is 2 m and breadth is 10 cm. Most of the children are unaware of the significance of units, hence, they might simply ignore the units and attempt it this way : 2 + 10 + 2... Continue Reading →

Most of the students learn about Distributive Property in Grade 4 or Grade 5 and this is how they usually get introduced to this topic. a * (b + c) = a * b + a * c I feel that we can introduce this beautiful & useful mathematical property in a more interesting manner.... Continue Reading →
Linear transformations vs. Matrix
Can you visualize linear transformation vs. matrix? We studied matrices in grade 12 and most of us mastered the basic calculation methods quite easily. We moved on to higher grades and used matrices wherever required. However, many of us missed out on getting the visual understanding of matrices. With so much happening in the field...
