How is Cuemath different?

Cuemath focuses a lot on logical thinking and mathematical reasoning rather than just remembering a few formulas. Cuemath, with the help of experts, has designed a unique and immersive program for students.

Cuemath not only helps students to perform well in their academics but also helps them absorb lifelong learning.

Cuemath Program Vs Math tuitions

In a continually changing world, with significant innovations and changes being driven rapidly, the traditional method of teaching falls like blackboard teaching and table tuitions, fall short of their targets.

In the blackboard classroom, the child is, at best, a passive consumer of a broadcast. It may be useful for other fact-based subjects, but it is a complete disaster for a life-skill that is math.

At the Cuemath online class, students learn math, but in a very different way. They are not like the boring old tuitions that students usually go to. Only a handful of students get the subject tuitions, while others are simply left to their fate. The class strength in a Cuemath class is much lesser than these tuitions, allowing personal attention and customized study plans.

important notes to remember
In the Cuemath class, the students are never told the answer directly. They are encouraged to self-discover the solution through logical thinking and mental models.

If they get stuck somewhere, the teacher gently nudges the student in the direction of the answer. This develops the learner’s minds and cultivates a problem-solving attitude.

Parts of Cuemath Program

The Cuemath program is designed to make math fun and exciting and to maximize the learning output.

important notes to remember
The Cuemath program has three parts: the online worksheets, tab-based activity, and online puzzle cards.

An online worksheet contains two to three modules each. Each module covers a specific topic for concept and has exercises related to that topic. The online worksheet is full of visual figures and logical exercises that make them fun and challenging at the same time.

Cuemath also has tab based activity where students learn through engaging exercises on the tab. Combining education with technology is a big part of Cuemath’s vision.

Problem Statement

Check the below image for the problem description:

Puzzle card

Now think of the solution on your own for a few minutes. It is very important to try a problem before jumping to the solution.

important notes to remember
It is very important to try a problem before jumping to the solution.

We hope you gave it a good try. Now let us start with a block of chocolate of mn dimension and start cutting it. When we cut it once, we get two pieces. If we cut one of the pieces further, we end up with three pieces in total.

Puzzle card

This means we need one cut to get two pieces, and two cuts to get three pieces. Thus, to get one more piece from any current number of pieces, we need to cut one of the pieces once.

Continuing this pattern, to get k pieces, we would require k-1 cuts. In the given problem, we need to cut the mn chocolate into mn pieces, and thus, we will require mn-1 cuts.
