When I was growing up in India, I recall having to take regular Math quizzes that tested 'Mental Math' in my elementary school years. Mental Math was essentially a test of how quickly we were able to solve the given arithmetic problems. Thanks to this early exposure, computational Math was never an issue for me even in later years when I took competitive exams. However what did take some getting used to was math that was not pure numbers but tested other aspects such as pattern recognition, spatial reasoning, logic - all of which I will put under the broad header of 'critical thinking.' Here's a look at these two components of math and how you can get your child exposed to both.  Read the rest→

In a recent interview, Sheryl Sandberg – the COO of Facebook and the bestselling author of  Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead said “So, stereotypically we believe girls are not good at math. Therefore, girls don't do well at math, and it self-perpetuates. If you ask a girl right before she takes a math test to check off 'M' or 'F' for male or female, she does worse on that test.”   Whether it’s nature or nurture or a combination of the two, research shows that there are performance differences between boys and girls in math. What is more worrying is that there seems to be a higher resistance to the subject among girls.  As the mother of a daughter this concerns me -I do not want my daughter to grow up thinking “Math is not cool”.  We researched the topic in depth to gain some insights on the subject and things parents can do to foster a liking for math in their girls.  Read the rest→

March 14 (i.e. 3-14) is celebrated as Pi day around the world. No, this doesn’t have anything to do with the highly popular movie the Life of Pi, but is a day in honor of the Greek letter Pi.
