MathU – Making a difference, one community at a time.

The matrics of 2021 showed incredible resilience, contending with two years of COVID-19 disruptions, and the July riots that left 144 learning centres across South Africa damaged.

Despite these disturbances, the class of 2021 truly knuckled down and produced the best possible results. One student that needs a special MathU-mention is a recent Folweni High School graduate – Sbonelo Gama, the top Technical Mathematics student in Kwa-Zulu Natal, with an impressive average of 93%. Sbonelo is part of MathU and Toyota South African Motors’ (TSAM) project.

This initiative aims to address South Africa’s educational challenges, by placing age-and-skill level appropriate mathematics and physical science content in the hands of students everywhere.

“Originally, I scored around 78% for Technical Mathematics, but as the MathU sessions increased, I started to put in the extra effort,” he said. By regularly using the MathU Infinity App, Sbonelo said it motivated him to work harder and do better.

With the Apps’ unique content, students have access to hundreds of hours of video content explaining concepts, thousands of individual exercises with written answers, video memorandums, and online tutors to assist when additional help is needed.

“When I saw how my marks increased with Technical Mathematics, I started using the App for Physical Science. During the first, second, and third term, I constantly scored in the low 80s. But, when I finally followed the MathU method for science, I scored 91% in the fourth term”. Sbonelo, everyone here at MathU is pleased with your outstanding results, and we believe that you have a bright future ahead. Keep making us proud!
