The Cuemath program runs through the year and caters to students in every grade from K through 8. Each Cuemath student attends three 1-hour sessions a week. But given the flexibility of our program, it adapts itself to the student's pace rather than moulding the student to fit its predetermined boundaries.
There are at most 8 students in a group. It is our wish to ensure that every one of our students is able to ask for and get "personal attention".
Yes, periodic assessments are part of the program. However, the intention of these assessments is not simply to "pass" or "fail" students, but rather to give the teacher enough information to help guide the student's learning. Additionally, all progress reports are shared with the parents who are encouraged to approach the teacher with their questions or suggestions.
We wish to emphasize that Cuemath is not a tuition. Instead, it is an (after-school) math-learning programme. In consequence, while home-based tuitions focus primarily on the school syllabus (or syllabi) and preparing students for their tests and exams, Cuemath's eye is fixed firmly on the long-term holistic development of a child's mathematical ability.
The focus of programmes like Abacus, Vedic Math is Arithmetic and calculation. As things stand, these programmes are designed less to test a child's comprehensive mathematical ability than to teach him to learn to calculate quickly. While capable of yielding gratifyingly quick results, such exercises have proven to have little impact in the long run.
There are over 1000 centers across India. While our centres are limited at present to India's major cities (including Delhi-NCR, Mumbai, Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad and Pune), we are making a concerted effort to establish ourselves nationwide.
Every mathematics textbook or programme aims to teach children the fundamentals of Mathematics in an interesting manner. However, this is easier said than done. As things stand, nearly every school-going student learns Mathematics superficially and for their examinations. Consequently, they never learn to appreciate the logic, precision and beauty of Mathematics nor experience the creative freedom that Mathematics can offer. Cuemath seeks to disrupt this established environment through a judicious mix of old and new methods. It does this by employing a combination of old-fashioned "worksheets" and tab-based assessments. In addition, it is Cuemath's wish to prepare a "customized trajectory" for each child, thus ensuring the most felicitous delivery of our product.
Cuemath is a revolutionary system that uses the skills of highly qualified people (mostly women) to deliver its curriculum to the children of countless neighbourhoods. Our rigorous training and certification process ensures that every student across the country is taught our material at the highest standard.
The Cuemath curriculum combines the three "domains" we believe are crucial to math learning. The first domain, School Math, is designed to cover the school curriculum (of every board). The second domain, Mental Aptitude, is designed to help students develop an aptitude for solving verbal, non-verbal and logical problems. The third domain, Creative Reasoning, is perhaps our most ambitious undertaking. Delivered through artistically-designed "puzzle cards", our Creative Reasoning questions are designed to give the child creative freedom and encourage mathematical thinking in unusual and often idiosyncratic ways.
