What I would highlight The instructor has some good ideas to present the material. However, from my point of view, he didn't realize it that well! I liked the fact that proofs were given and explained. But again, proofs were given in a way which could be highly improved in terms of explanation strength and presentation! Furthermore, the course actually requires more prerequisite knowledge than presumed.

What could be improved Everything OK.

What I would highlight This course can be taken comfortably in 4 afternoons or evenings with a 2 hours effort each . It was nice to have the topics which the course covered presented to me , but i do not think the course content was always clear or suitable for someone without mathematical background whilst the course probably aims at this audience : Its worth taking to get some impression , but this is all the course may do then , whilst for the mathematical minded person this course may be unsatisfying . With a bit of improvement this course could become a very nice experience in future .

What could be improved Nothing bad.

GCSE Mathematics
Prime Numbers

Course programme

Prime numbers are one of the most important subjects in mathematics. Many mathematicians from ancient times to the 21st century have studied prime numbers. In this math course, you will learn the definition and basic properties of prime numbers, and how they obey mysterious laws. Some prime numbers were discovered several hundred years ago whereas others have only been proven recently. Even today, many mathematicians are trying to discover new laws of prime numbers. Calculating by a pen and paper, you will explore the mysterious world of prime numbers. Join us as we tackle math problems, and work together to discover new laws on prime numbers. Let's study and have fun!
