"For beginners" courses

It is never too late or too early to start training your brain :) But we strongly recommend doing the assessment (blue button) to help decide which of the courses you should do! It will be quick.

So the educational process consists of
  • online lessons with a teacher (a student from the University of Cambridge). They happen online in a cool 2-D virtual world, you can try its demo version here;
  • working on the work sheets that we share with our students. They contain a lot of problems, some theory and maybe hints;
  • messaging us and asking questions or checking if your solutions are correct;
The courses below are about extra-curricular mathematics for those who have no or little experience with it. Brainteasers, formal proofs, constructing algorithms, etc... are the main focus.
