Educating curious minds to explore quantitative disciplines and gain problem-solving skills

Our journey through the years

The boundless potential in youth

From a young age, Manish trained his son Nilay to excel in math. At the age of two, Nilay learned basic counting; by five he was fluent in basic algebra and reciting multiplication tables by heart. At the age of six, he was already learning simple trigonometry.

When Nilay was in second grade, he met Amol, another student who was also interested in mathematics. Manish decided to teach them math and puzzles together; Nilay and Amol became both classmates and good friends.

Competitive math and MOEMs

One day at the library, a MOEMs problems book caught the two students' attention. They had never participated in MOEMs or any competitive math, but they were fascinated by  the problems in that book.

After solving a number of the problems, Nilay and Amol were absolutely set on participating in an actual MOEMs competition. Driven by this interest, they formed their own MOEMs chapter and competed in their first ever math contest.

Growing demand for classes

To increase the competition for the two students, Manish and his wife Stuti decided to open up math classes to any interested students from Nilay's school. After over 20 students joined, they opted to move classes from their home to a nearby hotel conference room.

Initial classes included specific coaching for MOEMs, but more generally focused on problem solving and mathematics fundamentals. Classes were generally relaxed and offered occasional breaks to maximize learning.

Initial competitive success

The students' success in MOEMs showed Manish how students develop when approaching math from a competitive perspective.

When he integrated the approach of tackling math from both problem solving and competitive perspectives into his coaching, the students excelled, winning first place in almost every competition they attended.

Random Math organized their own regional Silicon Valley Math Tournament, and the massive turnout showed Manish the large number of eager, motivated and smart students in the greater community.

Random Math Inc.

In 2015, Manish officially founded Random Math. The incredible interest he had observed from students across the area motivated him to design the organization around learning math fundamentals through the lens of problem solving and competition.

Random Math soon became a force to reckon with in every contest they competed in, including the Pi Math Contest (PMC), the Berkeley mini Math Tournament (BmMT), and MOEMS.

Continued growth and expansion

Over the past years, Random Math has seen a tremendous growth in students and student success. As of 2020, Random Math has fourth graders excelling in the AMC 8, fifth graders qualifying for AIME, and 10 USAJMO qualifiers.

Random Math strives to provide the highest quality of education and to invest fully in each of their students. With the state of the organization today, the future is nothing short of bright.
