New app to improve Maths literacy

14 April 2014, 15:12

Lagos - Mathematics literacy among local schoolchildren is poised to improve following the introduction of a math learning application.

Managing Director, Nokia West and Central Africa, Nick Imudia, said the SmartKid Maths app is the first learning game app featuring Learning Analytics which shows users their progress as they proceed to the next stage.

The app, which is free for download on window stores is an educational game created by Finnish digital company, SkillPixels that contains complete preschool, first and second grade mathematics with three years worth of curriculum-based math exercises.

The app has more than 10 000 exercises in 100 progressive levels, corresponding to major international and United States of America core curriculum requirements for preschool, first and second grades.

“This app will help build a strong foundation for children in the area of Mathematics and get them acquainted with the subject before starting with the basics in school simply by teaching them about shapes, coordinates, numbers, time, addition, subtraction, equations, money, multiplication, division, fraction, and much more.

“It is a simple, easy and fun app that we are really proud of and believe will impact immensely in children, making school work easy for the parents and teachers to teach,” Imudia said.

Imudia further explained that SmartKid Maths enables children learn the concept of numbers, counting, order, distance, numbering system, place value and fractions.

According to him, through the apps, parents and teachers can help children identify their personal strengths and pinpoint individual bottlenecks in learning and help correct it.

He said the app had won several international awards.
