Cuemath, a global math learning platform, has recently launched ‘Mathfit’, a digital handbook that aims to empower students to ace math exams by overcoming their ‘Math Phobia. According to an official statement, the guide has been launched to help students practice math as a life skill and not merely for academic excellence.
In addition, ‘MathFit’ also aims to share simple and effective learning strategies to help students manage math exam priorities efficiently. This handbook comprises topics like relaxation methods, stress management and concentration techniques. Since parents play an essential role in their child’s learning journey, it also informs them how to help children feel more confident while preparing for the examination. The handbook will be populated through EdTech’s social media handles and website and distributed among the parents’ and teachers’ communities for greater accessibility.
Speaking about the development, Chief Executive Officer of Cuemath, Vivek Sunder, said:
A survey conducted by us in 2021 found that the pressure and fear of mathematics among Class 10th students grows significantly during the board exams. The study also highlighted that several students in classes 9th and 10th lack self-belief in their mathematical abilities and how their confidence levels undergo a significant drop during the board exams. Many children’s struggles concerning maths learning inspired us to introduce ‘MathFit.’
Cuemath, founded in 2013, provides technology-driven after-school math learning programs for KG to 12th-grade students.
