Multi-sensory learning techniques have been incorporated for strong and lasting memory engrams. This ensures that the learning is retained for years without loss. Mnemonic techniques for instant memorization have been used as part of Maths Tricks. This aids quick internalization and recall of important mathematical concepts that provide a strong foundation for advanced Maths skills. All these exceptional features have been woven together in an extremely fun, engaging and addictive game format that has students addicted to this enriching App. Students are expected to stick to this 10 minute daily routine for the very best results.
