The Cambridge Mathpro-Programmes has been developed in India after many years of research. Through this programme, teachers will be able to ignite a joy among children for learning math. The programme will help children better comprehend the basic mathematical concepts. I am sure schools in Oman will benefit immensely from this programme if the decide to introduce it.”
