OUR story

It was one fine evening in 2010 I and Bharathy were thinking – How do we make Rajiv, our kid feel excited about math and how can it be experiential? We have a solid education background, yet we felt Math was taught in a very abstract manner. Rajiv doesn't like it nor do other kids. As we continued discussing school curriculum, we knew well for higher grade kids that there is a lab for Physics and Chemistry. But there isn’t any for Math! We couldn’t be quiet after this.

With this quest in mind and trying to solve this puzzle, in one of our trips to a school, we noticed children were playing and interacting following Montessori method of doing mathematics. It is based on the paradigm of “learn by doing” and not by procedure. We clearly noticed, children were able to see, touch and experience Math. So, this is what we call as a fun filled cognitive learning experience. The kids were full of energy, while doing it. This was our inspiration.

Math Buddy Work

We decided to make Math Awesome for children by making them see, touch and experience it. Mathbuddy is their true companion who they can count on.

Bubbling with passion and some savings, we set out on a mission mode to make it a reality. Our first version came after year long work by two of us. With this, we brought experiential fun based cognitive learning to kids and established Math labs as well in numerous schools.
