Most of us had at least one cousin or friend who was unbeatable at complex board games or card games but scored poorly in exams! 

In all probability, he might have been demoralized by the conventional method of math teaching in most schools based on memorizing formulae.

Math can be fun if taught using games and activities like this parent and child.

However, there’s hope. Math education is undergoing a sea change with the growing acceptance of recreational activities in mathematics across the world including India.

 The aim of fun based learning (of which smart math games are a subset) is to enable those who are not proficient in math to grasp mathematical concepts – and thereby, procure mathematical aptitude.
