Is mathematics really that tough?
What is missing in most curricula is “How to think”. Students solve math problem without much thinking and may be with the help of hints and formulas. When they enter finally into a real world they suddenly realize that not all problems can be solved with formulas.
Over the past few decades, FIITJEE attempted to address this gap by inculcating “thinking skills”. Earlier these skills inculcated, students perform better.
