Updated: Jul 12, 2022
Open to everyone across the world, it is being offered in Online Mode, free of cost, and will focus on teaching about multiple approaches to problem-solving
To stimulate innovative thinking, the Indian Institute of Technology Madras (IIT Madras), India's number one educational institute, has established a course on 'Out of the Box Thinking' using Mathematics.
This training, a first-of-its-kind programme in India, is available to everyone in the world. Through this course, the Institute hopes to reach one million school and college students in India, as well as working professionals and researchers.
These courses will be available online for free to everyone in India and abroad through IIT Madras Pravartak Technologies Foundation, a sec 8 business of IIT Madras that will also award Grade Certification to students who take the tests for a modest charge.
The first batch of the three-month course is set to begin on July 1, 2022. Registration will conclude on June 24, 2022. Those interested can register at https://www.pravartak.org.in/out-of-the-box-thinking.html.
Recognized as an Institution of Eminence (IoE) in 2019, IIT Madras has been placed No. 1 in the 'Overall' Category for the third consecutive year in the Government of India's India Ranking 2021. From 2016 to 2021, the Institute was also placed first in the category of 'Engineering Institutions' in the same Rankings.
Prof. V. Kamakoti, Director of IIT Madras, explained the need for such courses, saying, "'Out of the box' thinking is the process of solving problems in an indirect and creative manner, employing reasoning that is not immediately obvious and involving ideas that may not be accessible through traditional step-by-step logic. Such thinking is stressed in this one-of-a-kind course by logically uncovering known and new facts of mathematics with an intriguing larger perspective of how to achieve it."
Mr. Sadagopan Rajesh, Mathematics Educator and Founder-Director of Aryabhatta Institute of Mathematical Sciences, will teach the courses.
The course will include four graded independent levels that students, professionals, and researchers may simply access. The course will cover a variety of problem-solving methodologies.
