What is Cuemath’s philosophy/ vision?
Our vision is to create thinkers and problem solvers of tomorrow. A robust math foundation will help children overcome the fear of math and discover the fascinating side of it. We approach math as a life skill and want children to be math literate and not view math as just a school subject. Our curriculum has been designed by math experts with a strong focus on building mental aptitude and creative reasoning while covering school curriculum.
What is the Cuemath curriculum / learning methodology? What all does it cover and how is it delivered?
The Cuemath curriculum has been designed by graduates from IITs, IIMs, Harvard and Cambridge. Our curriculum focuses on making math learning fun. The curriculum has 3 parts: We cover all math concepts across all boards – CBSE, ICSE, State Board and international boards through workbooks. The curriculum is, therefore, very detailed and exhaustive. Tab based math games to increase the mental aptitude. These fun exercises challenge your child’s accuracy and speed while also building their mathematical aptitude. Puzzle cards to develop out-of-the-box thinking and creative reasoning skills. With these puzzle cards children are encouraged to apply math in real life situations leading to enhanced creative reasoning skills.
How does Cuemath help a child who is already good at math?
A child is considered good at math if they score well in school exams. However, it's not an accurate indicator of a child’s math ability. Many students score 95% to 100% in their exams, but are not clear about key math concepts. It is important to note that a weak math foundation becomes evident in higher grades when a child finds it difficult to deal with increasing complexity. At Cuemath, we give personal attention to your child to analyse their improvement areas. For students who are already strong in fundamentals, our program focuses on advanced concepts (with increasing difficulty level, Olympiad preparation, etc). Furthermore, children who are good at math might lose interest in the subject because their schools may not challenge them enough to keep them engaged. At Cuemath, students are constantly challenged with tab-based activities and puzzle cards among others.
How does Cuemath help a child who hates math?
There can be many reasons as to why a child ends up hating math - a child’s fundamentals may not be strong, or the child has become disinterested in math because of the way it is taught at school or tuition centres. At Cuemath, the approach towards learning math is very different. We focus on building the fundamentals of math in a fun way to ensure even a child who has given up on math actually starts enjoying it - and becomes great at it.
How is Cuemath better than home tuitions?
Home tuitions focus on homework completion and exams revision, with little focus on learning something new, or going beyond what is taught in school. However, at Cuemath, we focus on building your child’s fundamentals in math. Home tuitions follow what is taught at school, while at Cuemath, the curriculum is delivered in a structured fashion – through workbooks and puzzle cards. Most home tutors are not trained, whereas Cuemath teachers are carefully selected and undergo rigorous training. Unlike home tuitions which have no cap on the number of students, a Cuemath teacher enrols only 7 to 8 students from different grades. This has two specific benefits - it reduces competition amongst students, while also allowing the teacher to give individual attention to each student.
How can you be so sure that my child will love math/Cuemath?
We have over 5,000 centres across India. We have witnessed the change in the way children learn, and become great at math with us. Our program is specially built to make children love math! From solving problems on tablets and puzzle cards to workbooks that include real-life problems, we make math learning relatable and fun.
How do you ensure that my child will get personalized attention?
Our program is designed carefully - from finding you the nearest centre and structuring the ideal batch size to designing the curriculum. At Cuemath, each batch has up to 8 children and consists of students from different grades (UKG to grade 8) thereby, reducing competition amongst students and helping the teacher give individual attention to each student. Our curriculum is system-driven in that each activity of the child (worksheets, tab exercises and puzzle cards) is recorded. As a result, the system drives the next steps (in terms of the difficulty level) for each student depending on their learning speed and progress.
What about the quality of teachers?
At Cuemath, we give special attention to finding the right talent to join our growing team of teachers. Our teachers are carefully selected in that out of 100 applications, only 4% make the cut. Our teachers are selected based on their strong professional and academic background. Once they are selected, our teachers undergo training on math concepts and effective teaching strategies. Cuemath teachers are also constantly supported with the best teaching practices based on in-house research by a team of education experts.
Will my child do better in exams after Cuemath?
Scoring high marks in exams is a short-term goal. In most cases, students can remember all the exercises and score well in exams. At Cuemath, we build life skills. We focus on learning and building strong fundamentals. We believe that if the concepts are strong, scoring good marks in exams is bound to happen.
Why don’t you give any homework to the children?
The Cuemath program follows a learning-by-doing approach. At Cuemath, children learn math by practicing on their own (worksheets and tablets). In most schools, your child has to focus on merely copying notes - hence the homework. However, at Cuemath, your child spends more than 3 hours per week (5 periods – 30 minutes each) working independently, giving them enough practice.
