Mathematical acumen plays an important part in the development of Programming skills. It helps programmers in two important ways -
- Problem Abstraction: This is the most important transferable skill from mathematics. It is the ability to strip away the unnecessary details and focus on the most important parts of a given problem.
- Perspective: It is the ability to change one’s point of view to suit the needs of a given problem. The idea is simply this – the problem may be presented to you in a particular way, but you should be flexible to change your approach as and when required.
We enrol all of our students in the modern-day digital classrooms of Khan Academy which helps to mentor students by identifying their problem areas and assigning relevant assignments. It gives comprehensive stats on the student’s performance and helps us to monitor the growth as well as improvement sections of the students.
