Chances are if you ask children what they fear the most in school, you will hear a resounding – ‘Maths’! And ask them what they enjoy the most – and it would very likely be a unanimous ‘games’

That is what HeyMath! has done — combining the enjoyment and fun of playing games with animated visuals to create fun engaging activities that make  aths easy and enjoyable for all students. This is part of a year-long celebration of ‘National Mathematical Year’ where HeyMath! teams travel to schools across India to run exciting Math-based activities for students.
