Natural Mathematics: Intuition and Insight
Professor Sanjoy Mahajan brings an enlightened approach to teaching mathematics by encouraging intuition and guessing. And he shows that this approach is not only more natural, it's also necessary in a great many of the real problems scientists and engineers try to solve. This is a way of thinking that is also applicable to problem-solving in general, not just in mathematics.
Here's an opportunity to celebrate our natural way of thinking. Professor Mahajan explains how to develop this as a genuine skill.
