Did you know that most jobs in the near future will require that all staff have solid coding and mathematical skills? Are your students being prepared for that future? In this episode of the podcast, we talk all things mathematics and coding with Manan Kurma founder and the first teacher of Cuemath.
Bio: Manan Khurma has been a Mathematics educator since his college days. He founded Locus Education upon graduating from IIT Delhi in 2007 and trained over ten thousand students for IIT-JEE within the first few years of his career as an educator. This experience of teaching JEE aspirants helped him gain insight into how the youth of the country perceives and studies Math.
He quickly realized that the combination of learning math through rote culture and the lack of a strong foundation from a young age led most students to fear math. Driven by his passion for the subject, he wanted to find a way to help children overcome this fear and understand how Math is present in every aspect of life. He believes that mathematics must be taught and learnt as a life skill and not just another academic subject.
Inspired by his understanding of the challenges faced by young students, Manan formulated a new way of teaching the subject – a math program called ‘Math by Reasoning’. This was also the genesis of Cuemath – an engaging platform that not only helps children master the subject, but also fall in love with it.
