What is the Cuemath philosophy?
How is our learning system different?
Pictorial representations and visual models help create a gradual and systematic approach that builds on a child’s existing understanding to develop a deep and sustainable understanding of maths.
For example, our students are introduced to the basic concept of numbers and counting through different models like FRB Model, Abacus Model and Disk Chart model that are visually intuitive and build a deep and lasting understanding of the concept in our students’ minds.
We do not hold each concept of math in isolation. We introduce new concepts to a child by harnessing his/her existing knowledge of another seemingly different concept
For example, the algebraic expression (a+b) (a-b) can be explained to students using their existing knowledge of areas of squares and rectangles. This way of learning new concepts helps students feel less intimidated and also helps retention of the concepts for longer.
Other math programs and the school system leave the students unexposed to different formats of questions which becomes a hindrance for the student. The Cuemath curriculum provides ample practice to the students by testing the same concept with different question formats in order to prepare them to tackle school and competitive exams.
For example, students are allowed to master the concept of place value and face value of numbers through both visual and non-visual question formats so as to make sure that they get enough practice and also to ensure that they are not fazed by newer question formats in competitive exams.
Your child does more than 100 practice problems in every concept. Every concept has word problems that focus on application, and help improve conceptual understanding and language comprehension.
Cuemath adopts a learning by doing approach that allows students to get enough practice to strengthen their concepts and expose them to application-based word problems that they seldom get to attempt in the school system.
