Making Maths fun Cuemath gamifies it by launching first ever Mathematical Universe

Maths has always been a dreaded subject for school students with all the complicated calculations involved. No longer so if you are part of the Cuemath programme.

Cuemath is India's leading home-based, after-school learning programme for maths. This Children’s Day, it has launched a first-of-its-kind ‘Mathematical Universe’ for students from Kindergarten to Class 8. Aiming to engage them better by strengthening their foundation in the subject, all Cuemath’s 20,000 students will be able to experience this unique form of learning through stories across 2500+ Cuemath centres starting from Tuesday.

These stories have been broadly divided into three levels – Class K-2, Class 3-5, and Class 6-8. This has been done after carefully analysing the students’ responses to content across media like storybooks, puzzles, games, apps and televised programs. Each story would be released periodically over a series of classes. The aim behind this is to engage the students to strengthen their problem-solving ability and increase their affinity for Maths.

Class K-2: Thomas Tallman and Friends - These are stories that focus on the wonders of math and logic in the natural world, and in the immediate world that the younger children live and play in.

Class 3-5: Zero-Squad - These are stories about an intrepid crime-solving detective duo, Eka and Dvita - the "Zero Squad."

Class 6-8: Kalina and the Shards of Singularity - These stories take place in a world that take you back to the Arabian Nights - but with intergalactic space-travel in a not-so-distant future.

“This is one of the most extensive gamification exercises ever undertaken in education. We have created all the characters and the fictional universe they belong to with immense detail, keeping in mind the triggers for children across different age groups,” said Manan Khurma, Cuemath’s founder, and CEO.

“We truly believe that students can understand mathematics better by themselves, simply by following their heroes on thrilling feats and escapades that pique their curiosity into the underlying scientific processes. With this type of learning we want to help remove the fear of mathematics in children and bring them closer to strengthening this life skill,” he added.

Founded in 2013, Cuemath is a home-based after-school, multi-format math learning program that brings together the best of technology and personal teaching. Cuemath has a unique curriculum and dedicated teachers across India. Earlier this year, Cuemath raised $15 million in its Series B round of funding from CapitalG (formerly known as Google Capital) and Sequoia India.
