Frequently Asked Questions

Please check the FAQ first. If your question is not here or you would like to provide feedback / request for new features, then email - Thanks.

Do I need to supervise my child?

Yes, you do. It is a way to bond with the child and provide support and encourage grit and effort. With the right scaffold, the content knowledge can be easily understood by an adult caregiver be it the grandparent, uncle/aunt, parent, helper, social worker or a helpful neighbor.

Do I need to purchase blocks?

Not really. But if you already have blocks, we recommend that you let the child practice the concepts learnt here with actual blocks.

Why is your application FREE?

We want to make foundational maths as painless as possible by using scaffolds to reduce cognitive loads. This benefit should be available to everyone regardless of socioeconomic status. Every child is entitled to full marks for maths. This is not possible if we have to pay for tutors and rent. We are also supported by grateful parents.

What does NOAM stand for?
