Description: It is relatively rigorous presentation of advanced math for high school students in a form of video-recorded lectures, notes and exams with an emphasis on the depth of educational material, including proofs and numerous problems.

The philosophy of this course is an opinion that the purpose of math education is not so much to equip a student with certain skills which he or she is supposed to remember and use in practical life, but to develop intelligence, creativity, logic - all the mental abilities, including critical thinking.

Math for someone's mind is the same as gym exercises for muscles.

The skills will come automatically as a result of this approach to math education.
