Estructura del curso

Este curso contiene 20 videos en vivo de LIVE de 1 hora. 16 son lecciones y 4 son análisis de examen donde se comentan los 4 exámenes de práctica de 1 hora del curso (tarea). Dos de nuestras Stars enseñan la clase conjuntamente. En total, hay más de 150 problemas.

Cada lección contiene distintos problemas diseñados para que sean desconocidos para ti, para inspirarte a imaginar tus propias soluciones. En el formato de clase de video en vivo de LIVE, tu propones ideas y pensamos juntos para inventar varias soluciones alternativas con las ideas propuestas en clase. Así participas activamente en el descubrimiento de las matemáticas.

Cada examen de práctica contiene 20 problemas. La mitad son de dificultad media y la otra mitad son más complejos.
