**Cuemath classes don’t feel like work**

- The Cuemath program is designed to engage children. It makes them fall in love with math.
- It does not feel like work. It does not put pressure on children.
- Math is the most important life skill. The conventional way of teaching math is simply not effective.
- We believe that other activities are very important, but they cannot be done at the expense of a life skill like math.
- Cuemath with its focus on learning outcomes builds a strong foundation using the Cuemath Method.

**A one-hour Cuemath class lasts 60 min! Children refuse to leave**

Based on student survey data, most of the children enrolled in Cuemath want the classes to last longer and be conducted more frequently. Children love coming to Cuemath classes because:

- they are not judged or ridiculed if they make a mistake.
- personalized attention from the teacher allows them to ask questions freely.
- there are math activities that bring a concept to life.
- math exercises and assessments on the tab don’t feel like games rather than math.
- there are no lectures, no videos to watch passively – that is, no blackboard method of teaching.

Children build a healthy and positive relationship with math and experience math in a way it always should have been experienced.

**Other activities are important, but doing them at the expense of math is risky**

- Math and reasoning go hand in hand. Math is best learned by reasoning. At the same time, math is also the best tool available to help children learn to reason.
- In today’s world, an individual needs to be able to critically analyze situations and then take decisions. The decisions could be at work or in personal life.
- Making quick and accurate decisions requires a strong foundation of the basic math concepts and an ability to apply them in unfamiliar settings. In other words – individuals need good reasoning abilities.
- Only math can build these from a young age. Hence we say that Math is a life skill.

**Learning math using the conventional method is just not enough**

- Enough research has shown that math cannot be taught like some other subjects.
- If taught using the blackboard methodology – via lectures or videos children are simply listening passively.
- If they are not involved and active, math learning is just not enough.
- If the learning is not effective, gaps in knowledge start building up.
- These gaps may not be evident immediately but will create barriers to learning at a later point – perhaps months or even years later
- For instance, children who do not learn fractions the right way (in grade 3) may struggle with decimals in grade 4, or percentages in grade 5 or rational numbers in grade 7.

**The Cuemath Method ensures children experience Math in the right way**

- Children learn by reasoning
- The learning resources are customized and each child learns at a pace best suited to them
- Concepts are introduced using visual aids or activities using physical learning aids
- There’s no peer pressure. Children are free to ask questions and unafraid to make mistakes.
- Teachers don’t give away answers. They provide clues and help children figure out the answer

**Thus, in summary:**

→ The Cuemath program is designed to engage children. It makes them fall in love with math.

→ It does not feel like work. It does not put pressure on children.

→ Math is the most important life skill. The conventional way of teaching math is simply not effective.

→ We believe that other activities are very important, but they cannot be done at the expense of a life skill like math.

Cuemath helps students prepare better by helping them prepare with over 15000+ workbook problems, 180+ puzzle cards, including several engaging math games that help students understand the ‘why’ behind the ‘what’ of math concepts.
