HundrED has not validated this innovation
Learning math should not be a privilege
What we do?
We are a team of teachers, mathematicians, computer scientists and parents, who are devoted to making math more understandable and pointing math education in a better direction. We have combined our revelations in eMathStudio, a learning platform featuring digital math notebooks where students can check their own assignments automatically and teachers can grade homework with one click. It gives teachers and students the chance to focus on learning, with all the advantages that immediate personal feedback brings with it. While other math applications focus on drilling, learning patterns, and telling you how to solve a problem, eMathStudio looks at your solution, and not just the answer, every step of the solution, the way you solved it, and tells you where you have calculated correctly and where you might have made a mistake. It is a student's personal tutor, a teachers helper and a parents dream.
Why we do it?
We believe that everybody should have a chance to learn math. Good grades in math often opens up doors to further education and decently paid jobs. In math everything builds on the previous steps, so missing something means it is difficult to ever catch up. We see that this can be prevented with the help of immediate personal feedback. No teacher has the time to check all solutions, but the automatic checker does have that time and makes it possible to give that personal feedback to everyone anytime.
