The 65 students at Magaliesburg State school in Gauteng in South Africa taking pure Mathematics are about to be given a new tool to get ahead – they will soon be taught by artificial intelligence, powered by the MathUGo App.
The school just launched the MathU Go App & Publication, to be the first official school in South Africa to trial the technology of Pretoria-based startup MathU, which uses AI to personalise education.
“The MathU Tool will assist learners and teachers to understand what is not mastered yet, think of this tool as an ERP for education powered by AI.”
– WA Burger, CEO & Founder of MathU
During the 2017 academic year, Tracker Connect, together with MathU, undertook a community upliftment project for the development of Mathematics & Science teaching at Magaliesburg State School.
This project proposed an academic skills development initiative designed to optimise the benefit to select learners in Grades 11 and 12. The MathU project provided the tools and resources to establish a platform for academic electronic learning by providing facilitating distance-based learning.
2019 is the third year in a row that the ITC Giant Tracker supported the Math outreach program.
