The launch follows a detailed testing phase in hundreds of classes that received exceptional feedback from students, parents, and teachers.
“We have carefully designed the “Create With Math” program so that children can understand the ‘why’ behind math and confidently use it to solve real-world problems in their environment. We design the learning experience as a playground, where the child interacts with math and builds, ”said Balaji Ramanujam, director of learning at WhiteHat Jr.
