The Hidden Message in Multiplication

As kids, we're asked to solve math problems. But can basic math solve our grown-up problems?

Uma Adwani grew up in a small town in India that discouraged girls from pursuing higher education. But that didn’t stop Uma from pursuing her dreams.

Uma moved to a completely unknown city to become a primary school teacher.

The problem? She would be teaching her most hated subject: math.

As Uma prepared her lesson plans, she started to discover the “magic of even and odd numbers, the poetry, the symmetry.”

Uma takes the stage at TED@UPS to share the magic of math – for all of us.

Uma Adwani is a Billing Supervisor at one of UPS's Global Business Services centers.
