Math Riddles can be quite challenging. They test your child’s logical thinking abilities and get them to delve deeper into the topic. Anyone who is phobic to Math can taken-on the task of solving fun puzzles, to dispel their fear. Developing a higher level of critical thinking skills at an early age is the secret to success for most elementary graders.

Whether you are an educator or a parent, we encourage you to dedicate at least 30 minutes a day to solving Math puzzles by handing over a worksheet to kids or using an online format. A bit of practice every day ensures that students don’t get overwhelmed during exam time and build enough confidence to tackle tricky problems in the exam paper.

We understand that the syllabus is pretty vast and it covers a range of topics from theorems to fractions and even number systems to linear equations. Thus, maintaining focus and being able to apply the correct logic to a sum, is quite daunting. Thankfully nowadays there are a number of Apps and learning platforms that introduce intriguing concepts in an easy-to-understand manner, which causes less stress. Mathseeds is one such popular platform and is most suited for school-going children within Dubai in the Middle East and other progressive regions of the world. Mathseeds is available to homeschoolers too, thereby increasing its reach and making it more likable amongst Math learners.
