  • the course which will be offered online mode
  • It will focus on teaching multiple approaches to problem-solving.

The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Madras launched a course on ‘Out of the Box Thinking’ in July 2022. The first-of-its-kind initiative aims to reach around one million students, working professionals, and researchers.

The course, which will be offered online, will focus on teaching multiple approaches to problem-solving and is open to everyone living in India and foreign countries.

Professor V. Kamakoti, Director, IIT Madras, said that candidates will be taught to find solutions to problems by “using reasoning that is not immediately obvious and involving ideas that may not be obtainable by using only traditional step-by-step logic”. 

 About the Course-

The logic being the undercurrent in the study of mathematics, it is essential to develop broader thinking, through its applications in the expanding world of technology. From solving a fun sudoku puzzle to completing an important scheduled project, the logic of working is much more important than the arithmetic involved in it. This requires creative thinking and a broader perception that is often known as Out of the box thinking. Out-of-the-box thinking is solving problems through an indirect and creative approach, using reasoning that is not immediately obvious, and involving ideas that may not be obtainable by using only traditional step-by-step logic. In this unique course, such thinking is emphasized through rediscovering the known and unknown facts of mathematics logically, with an interesting broader perception of the manner of doing it.
