## Questions

### Subject: Geometry

What is Geometry ?

The basic high school geometry is a place where student's get the first taste of proving. Taught in a right manner this can inculcate a life long love for mathematics

### Subject: Discrete Math

What is Discrete Mathematics ?

I really love discrete math because here the problems are interesting that can be understood by students with not much background in math. However there are wealth of amazing insights one can develop by mastering this subject. Traditionally a first course in discrete math course includes combinatorics, linear equations, some graph theory, simplex methods and logic.

### Subject: Calculus

What is Calculus about ?

Calculus is about three big ideas limits, differentiation and Integration. Historically the subject developed in reverse order first came Integration then differentiation and then limits. In high school math we learn lot of techniques to solve a variety of problems ranging from calculating limits, solving optimization problems using derivatives and finding areas and volumes using Integrals. I use variety of tools like Desmos, Geogebra and SageMath to make calculus alive. Most students struggle in Calculus not because its difficult its because they don't have a good background in Algebra and Trigonometry. So I cover these topics along to give my students a firm foundations in basics that leads to mastery of calculus.
