Kids hate math…? Try HeyMath

Filed under: India,Kids,Parenting — hindumommy @ 12:11 am

For most kids, math is dull, boring and challenging.

For $100 a year (or Rs 600 a year in India), HeyMath helps students overcome the fear of math.

HeyMath founded by Harsh Rajan and Nirmala Sankaran in partnership with the Millennium Mathematics Project at Cambridge University, has a library of animated online lessons, interactive activities and assessment modules helps students strengthen their understanding of concepts and enhance their problems solving skills.

According to Thomas Friedman, best selling author of “The World is Flat”

“HeyMath’s mission is to be the math Google – to establish a web-based platform that enables every student and teacher to learn from the ‘best teacher in the world’ for every math concept and to be also able to benchmark themselves against their peers globally”

HeyMath is already being used in 35 Singapore schools and has received some 2,500 inquiries from public schools in the US. The department of education in Massachusetts has included HeyMath as an approved learning resource.

So, if your kids hate math, just go to HeyMath and let them start having fun

  1. Indian and Chinese kids are already seen as math wizards. I am especially proud that Indians are using their creativity and innovative ability to make the math wizards of the future.
