# Problem-driven coursework

Beautiful problems are the bread and butter of our courses. Our pedagogical method typically involves a

*problem*to*concept*pathway. The classes usually begin with a motivating problem. That unfolds into a deep conceptual framework, leading to more problems.# Testimonials
