Learning ∝ Engagement; Engagement ∝ Relationship
Relationship with math is important to excel in math
Your child's success in math ∝ Your beliefs and relationship with math!
To built that relationship, everyone will have to learn math again, pre-school onwards!
Schools can't teach Mathematics, and it's the best news!
School Math suffers from serious limitations.
First, it is confusing. For teachers as well. Division (an operation on two numbers) and fractions (one number) aren't differentiated.
Second, it is just wrong. 7 + 3 = 10, but that's rather rare in real world math! 8 - 1 - 1 is mostly quite different from 8 - 2.
Third, it is very Elitist. Success in math needs money. Supplementary, high-cost, multi-year tuition is inescapable in math education. For many, it starts from Grade II, including those from educated families too.
Fourth, it doesn't adhere to scientific principles and knowledge. 8 divided by 1/2 becomes 16! Exceptionally, teachers may add that '16 is 16 halves', and quantity is always conserved.
Fifth, it is a highly gender biased subject. Till today, men dominate the field, and women get somewhere left behind. It is abstracted too early, and that works against the more 'worldly-wise' fairer sex.
To top it all, school math has not changed in the 200 years of its existence in the current format. No school yet explains the overwhelming majority of nearly 1000+ logical explanations embedded in school math curriculum (for instance, why division from right may leave remainders bigger than the divisor).
School math belongs in the museums and must not be taught in schools. Math must be taught in every home, as a language; schools may supplement.
'Mathematics as a language' @ Perfect10math is just what every family needs for math education.
"There needs to be a paradigm shift in people's approach and attitude to math. We need a transformation in the field."
- Vishwanathan Anand in The Hindu (newspaper) on 22nd December, 2020 (National Mathematics Day)
The catalytic effect of quality math education on overall improvement in education and assurance of happy fulfilled childhood is more profound than any other factor.
Mathematics as a language – Rewiring our evolution
While linguistic proficiency determines the speaker/user's competence to utilise the accumulated cognizance to drive societal progress, it is only the languages with necessary structural and lexical complexity that would meet an advanced society's requirements.
Therefore, Language reflects the intellectual culture of the speakers, and the 'Language Complexity' (LC) and the Language Quotient (LQ) of a society determine its growth and development.
Imagine the state of human progress and development if there is one Language that is (duly) Complex and has a 100% achievement Quotient among all!
Math is a universal and Complex language but has a very low Quotient. Applying 'Mathematics as a language' will engender 100% Math Quotient (MQ) across 7 billion of us!
Perfect10Math offers K-10 'Mathematics as a language' resource to guarantee sustainable growth, equality, and real democracy across the world.
Why is perfect10 Math Magical, surreal?
Math - the operational language of the universe and the only global language hasn't been written in 'popular math' format. We've created 'Mathematics as a Language' for the entire K10 curricula. Loving and excelling in math is now just a matter of reading these books!
Pertinently, the wheel of human evolution will be significantly accelerated if everyone succeeds in math!

Believing in the thought that first change yourself then change the system and then the world. Under the guidance of our respectable mentor Sandeep Srivastava , I understood his genuine approach to education and worked accordingly.
Can you answer 'how' before understanding 'what' and 'why'? No, you can't. But today's math teaching follows 'how' approach. Schools teach methods on 'how to solve a math’s problem' without explaining 'what' the problem is about or 'why' should it be solved.
I have been teaching for 21 years in kindergarten and am very passionate about teaching. All these years I was satisfied with the way I taught my students. But last year, I started teaching math to Grade I. Our mentor Mr. Sandeep Srivastava guided us step by step.
Thank God, you didn't fall in love with math at school!
