Frequently Asked Questions: 

  1. Who do you recommend the books for?
    Please refer to the recommended age range, and review the book descriptions to see if the topics covered are the knowledge you'd like to strengthen with your student. There are three main scenarios in which the book is generally ideal:

    • The student is ahead of their class and is looking for an additional challenge that they're not getting at school to keep the learning momentum going. ​

    • The student is maintaining good pace at school, however the teaching is inconsistent and/or not enough material is being assigned to reinforce the material learned as homework. 

    • The student's grades are not where they are wanted or the student is having a hard time staying caught up. The student needs support outside of class to catch up with their class. 
       

  1. How much and how often should we work on the book?
    We encourage to maintain a consistent routine of 1 or 2 pages per day. If you're finding it difficult to enforce this schedule with your child, find an alternative that works for you, such as 4-5 pages every weekend, or a page every second day. Despite the amount of work done, some sort of consistency is encouraged to maintain for best results. 

     

  2. Some days are very busy with school work and other extracurriculars -- is it OK to skip a day(s) of math?
    This of course will happen, and it is fine. However, if you do decide to begin the Eduke books, to get the most benefit  out of them, we encourage you to enforce it as a mandatory part of the student's daily/weekly routine with a schedule. If a page is not done today because of sports, a birthday party, or other homework, then two pages need to be done tomorrow to make up for it. Understandably, it can be hard to enforce this routine, but you should try your best. An average page per day should take no more than 20-30 minutes on average, and an easy page can take as little as 5-10 minutes. 

     

  3. Some of the content in the books is repetitive or the child already understands them, can we skip pages to focus on the parts important to us?
    Some part of the book are purposely designed to be repetitive in certain stages, for the purpose of engraining certain topics as muscle memory. This applies to things like the times-table, adding and subtracting one-digit numbers, and restructuring algebraic expressions to isolate the variable. We highly encourage you not to skip any pages, as not only do they help reinforce topics, they help build mathematical intuition and confidence and instil discipline without hardship. 

     

  4. Should I guide my child through the book, or can they do it on their own from start to end?
    Although the books are written to be self-guiding for the most part, working through the first few questions of each new topic with the child is highly encouraged. This is for the purpose of ensuring that the student understood the proposed strategy and is not resorting to discouraged tactics such as using the column method, the calculator,  etc. You should not have to watch over your child doing the work, but please make yourself accessible for when the child has questions about a question or topic. 

     

  5. Should I check the child's work or let them check it themselves?
    We highly encourage you to make the time to check the work of the student, and do it as soon as possible following completion. If they have done well, this exercise acts as a positive reinforcer and motivates the student to continue to do well. If they have made mistakes, finding and addressing them right away helps to make sure that the mistakes are not repeated down the road. 

     

  6. How do I keep my child motivated to do "extra" school work?
    This can be a difficult task, especially if they already have homework from school. The key is positive reinforcement, combining material rewards (such as earned time with the computer/phone/iPad/video games, etc.) with emotional support through recognizing the hard work and complimenting the child. Checking the work shortly after they have completed it can be a great motivator and a bonding experience as well. 

     

  7. What age do you recommend we begin working on each of the books?
    While we provide a recommended age range for each book, the primary goal of the books has been to provide freedom of setting your own pace. Often, students will excel in certain areas of math more than others and that is completely normal. If your child is outside the recommended age range, they will also benefit greatly from the workbook, whether they are getting ahead, or catching up. In these particular circumstances, you may find  that it's best to skip some content if it is too repetitive or too difficult for now. 

     

  8. We have received the books, however we are not satisfied with their content. What is your refund policy?
    Our product information pages provide an in-depth overview of what the books contain with example pages included. At this time, all purchases are final sale. If the product arrives damaged, you may send proof of damage to our email (info@eduke.ca) and we will be happy to send you a new book. 

     

  9. I have some ideas on how you can improve the material in your book(s), can I share it with you?
    All feedback is greatly appreciated. Please send an email to us at info@eduke.ca with any feedback, questions and opinions that you're willing to share with us, so that we can integrate it into the next edition of the books. 

     

  10. I would like to use your books for my math class/program/tutoring sessions. Can I do this? (affiliate code)
    No parts of the book can be reproduced or transferred for any purposes. However, if you're looking to place a bulk order for your students, or have your students order it as part of your class or program, we would be happy to provide you with an affiliate discount code. Please email us directly at info@eduke.ca and provide more details so we can help you out. 

     

  11. What books will can I expect to be released next?
    The next two books will be continuations of the first Arithmetics and Algebra books, which will expand on the covered knowledge and work through more complex problems. For example, in Arithmetics Level 2 - multiplication and division will be covered; in Algebra Level 2 - graphing with X and Y variables will be introduced. Following these publications, the plan is to introduce workbooks on: 

    • Geometry ​

    • Fractions, Decimals and Fractions 

    • Probability 

    • Problem solving -- money 

    • Problem solving -- speed and distance 

    • And lots more!
       

  12. What is next for Eduke?
    The books were inspired by the need for supplementary mathematics content that students can work on throughout the week at home. Building on this foundation, the goal is to introduce a tutoring program that will combine one-on-one tutoring with a digital experience.
