Edutech solutions are helping students worldwide to better their lessons with technology, especially difficult subjects like mathematics. Korean edutech startup Freewheelin recently announced that the number of students who studied through ‘Mathflat,‘ a self-developed math problem bank solution, increased by an average of 18 points or more. Freewheelin is a portfolio company of leading Korean VC firm Altos Ventures.
Freewheelin operates Mathflat, a subscription-based educational software tool for private, after-school academies. Mathflat has 670,000 self-contained math problems and is used in more than 4,000 places, including private institutes, classrooms, study rooms and schools in Daechi-dong, Gangnam-gu, and Seoul. Mathflat’s test bank of hundreds of thousands of math problems enables K-12 math teachers to generate and grade assignments at different levels and provide a personalized lesson for each student through tablets and PCs.
The recent figure results from a grade verification event for teachers at Mathflat-affiliated schools, academies, and study rooms. It is a number derived by comparing the final exam results with the first semester’s math midterm exam.
Mathflat confirmed that, through more than 300 responses in the last year, the average score of the students taught by affiliated teachers increased by 13.2 points after 12 months. In the future, Mathflat plans to introduce various learning effects by sharing multiple examples of improved math performance and educational methods.
An official from Mathflat said, “As the proportion of so-called ‘despirators’ in the evaluation of middle and high school academic achievement in Korea is gradually increasing, it is necessary to provide customized problems at the level of school and private institute (hagwon) teachers so that students can maintain their interest in mathematics. Actually, there is a trend of increasing interest in mathematics in the UK and other overseas countries by efficiently managing one-to-many students through customized mathematics education.”
