Students are facing so many uncertainties about the future of the job market. Fast growing technologies have been broadening our perspectives in so many dimensions but have also given us an unpredictable future. What it is wise to do at the current situation is building up skills which are likely to provide a solid foundation for a successful career. Recent analysis shows that STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) occupations are taking over the job market and the demand for its related skills is rapidly increasing. Critical thinking and problem solving skills in particular have been considerably required by the majority of employers over the past few years . This implies that students need to acquire these skills using a proper education. Bungee PI was initiated to provide a great educational platform for students to acquire these skills using a novel approch.
Bungee PI was initiated by Dr. Nahid Linda Banihashemi to empower students with these skills using uniquely applied mathematics. It is based on a strategic program which not only focuses on the abstract mathematical concepts but also on their applications and links to order disciplines. It incorporates mathematical concepts into real life scenarios which is a very challenging task as it requires a fundamental change in the way mathematics has been taught and delivered over so many years. Bungee PI makes learning fun and effective using story-telling, animation and collaboration for students to understand the world through the lens of mathematics , feel confident and smart and become prepared for the future.
Mathematics is the main tool which has been used by Bungee Pi for developing critical thinking and problem solving skills in students. However, mathematics appears to be hard, boring and useless for majority of students. Problem solving can be hard even for smart students. The main focus of Bungee PI is to help you overcoming these negative feeling and perceive mathematics as fun, applicable and powerful subject by which you improve your analytical skills. For achieving this goal, Bungee PI uses storytelling, animation and applications. We align mathematical concept you are supposed to learn at school in each grade with its application in real life first. Then we make a story out of it and deliver it using fun animations. Using this approach you not only appreciate the power of mathematics but also you learn how to use it for solving real life problems.
Bungee PI is based on a hybrid model which includes online platform and group activities in the class. The online platform includes the stories, animations, quizzes and surveys which students need to progress through at home with their own pace . The problem solving classes which is aligned with the online platform is for group activities in which students solve practical problems with their friends and enjoy learning through collaboration with others
The Purpose of the Bungee PI is to make the Earth a better place for living by having more powerful, educated and conscious humans. Its vision is to empower people with knowledge, critical thinking and problems solving skills to build a great foundation for future. It has a mission to become the best educational platform with a uniting approach which used mathematics as its core. Bungee PI has so many values . Education, logic, creativity , awareness, fun and integrity matter the most for it. How is it Positioning itself in the market ? well, by having highly qualified experts in the fields of applied mathematics, making the fundamental change in the way mathematics has been taught for centuries by making it fun, applicable and collaborative. It uses story-telling animations to provide fun learning experience. The level of integrity toward learning mathematics which Bungee PI has is almost unheard of in the space of mathematics education .
