# Mental Math Workbook - Techniques

So, you want to teach your children math with all the tender guidance that only a parent can give. You can teach them the techniques, but they need to apply the techniques to learn them. That's where our application comes into the picture. Using the application you can:

• Let your child practice an virtually unlimited set of problems.
• Monitor your child's practice attempts and identify weak areas for improvement.
• Assign goals and rewards for your child to achieve for the ultimate self-paced learning experience.
• Use the extensive training material on our web-site to teach your child. The training material is written in easy English.

The following training material is designed to accompany our "Mental Maths Workbook" application. This application is currently available on the Android platform. Other smartphone platforms are targeted to be released soon!

The concept of the application was inspired by several things:

• The desire to teach maths to my niece, who goes by the alias "Pumpkin"
• The bestseller "The secrets of Mental Maths" written by Arthur Benjamin and Michael Shermer
• Memories of Shakuntala Devi, who I had the good fortune of seeing when I was a child.
