How You Too Can Be Good at Mathematics
From Kenneth Williams, Mathematician and Veteran Mathematics Trainer
Hi, I’m Kenneth Williams
After finishing teacher training in 1972, I settled into teaching mathematics in schools, a job I loved.
There is nothing like seeing the look of understanding on students’ faces when they understand something they thought was difficult.
I thought traditional school teaching would be my whole life. But one day my path took a very different direction…
How Mathematics Can Change Lives
A friend who knew I was a mathematician, gave me a mathematics book as a present from India.
Although the book was written in technical language, I was able to understand exactly what the author was saying.
In fact, I began to experiment…
I took some of the Indian methods in the book and made them more accessible to school students.
When I tested the techniques on the kids, the results were immediate…
“Why Weren’t We Shown This Before?”
If you have ever tried to teach kids or adults in a different way, then you’ll know it’s not an easy task. Mathematics is known for trouble.
And yet, a few demonstrations can turn this negative thinking upside down.
My students discovered how several Indian techniques are far easier and more natural than the awkward methods people still struggle with today.
Now You Can Discover These Easier Mathematics Techniques
- Over the years I’ve been fortunate enough to present my methods to help a wide range of audiences in many countries around the world.
- I’ve spoken to groups, from young children just starting out in arithmetic, to University students pursuing mathematics as a career.
- I gave extensive summer courses at Oxford University for a number of years.
- In 2006 I became an educational consultant to a teaching company setting up private mathematics schools for children in the Far East.
- Since 2008 I have run this online training course, Math2020, teaching people around the world the easier ways to acquire mathematics knowledge.
All you need are the right techniques. And they’re easy.
