Built on more than 20 years of research in cognitive science and artificial intelligence, MATHia mirrors a human coach possibly better than any other platform. It provides a 1-to-1 personalized learning experience for every student, delivering differentiated learning experiences that support students who are struggling while challenging those who are ready for more.
Three points regarding the features and design of MATHia that wowed judges in The EdTech Awards 2019 competition from EdTech Digest:
1. Constructive Guidance – Unit overviews provide videos to connect the math to the real world. Step-by-step examples then guide students through each step of a sample problem, describing the steps as a teacher might. Then, like a human coach, MATHia re-phrases questions, re-directs the student, and hones in on the parts of the problem that are proving most difficult.
2. Thorough Formative Assessment – MATHia looks at every aspect of the student’s work to better understand where they are and what they’re thinking. It doesn’t just tell students what they got wrong, it helps them understand why they got it wrong.
3. Thoughtful Design – Expertise from math master practitioners and cognitive scientists ensures each workspace and problem maximizes learning while collecting critical data about what students do or do not know at every step.
Furthermore, MATHia transforms data into insight and action:
- The Adaptive Personalized Learning Score (APLSE) Report leverages predictive analytics to give educators a clear projection of where students will be, well in advance of summative assessment results and before it’s too late to intervene.
- Leadership Reports provide a constant stream of performance and usage data to monitor district-wide, school-wide, classroom, and district progress toward learning goals.
For its practical, workable, and effective use of artificial intelligence in achieving much of the above, the judges of The EdTech Awards 2019 named MATHia “Best Artificial Intelligence (AI) Solution” for 2019. Learn more. And have a look at this video.
