Meet KooBits: The Math E-Learning Platform All Top Students Are Using

“I can’t do math!”

That’s a common phrase that we have heard, chances are your little ones at home might have said the same too. Having to memorise concepts and formulas or tackle tedious equations are no easy tasks.  Unfortunately, even if you know they are struggling to grasp the mathematical concepts, you are still at wits’ end about how to help them!

Should you invest in one more math tuition class? Buy more assessment books? Assign worksheets or top school papers?

These ‘solutions’ are really testing the limits of both parents and children. While you want your child to ace the next math exam, costly tuition classes are certainly putting a dent on household income and causing so much physical and mental stress. What’s worse is the pile of homework that your child has to work through at night!

So how do top-students ace their exams?

However, do you know that there are students in Singapore who are excelling in math with just 20 minutes of daily practice? Not only are they scoring top marks in their math exams, but they are also deeply enjoying and loving the subject.

Thanks to math e-learning platforms like KooBits, students are becoming so interested in math that they are starting their daily practice as early as 6 am – without any nagging or bribing from parents!

Just take a look at what parents today are saying:

“My daughter is a smart child, but she was easily distracted in class, and never liked to read her Math text books, or do math practices. But KooBits really changed that. With their animated videos, and interactive question format, my daughter became motivated to practice math and started scoring 90+ marks in her exams. Now, she practices math on KooBits by herself, I don’t have to remind or nag at her. Thanks KooBits!”

– Parent of Claire, Indonesia

“My son learnt so much in practising KooBits… His teacher was amazed at his enthusiasm in understanding math concepts. Really a lifesaver to all maths loving kids. Thanks again.”

— Parent of Ee Jin, Singapore

“Really awesome online learning of math challenges and also have interesting fun games. Motivated my son in learning math. As a parent, I can also monitor his progress in various topics 👍🏻 Highly recommended!”

— Parent of David, Australia

So, what exactly is KooBits, and how does it bring these transformative changes in students?

1. KooBits embraces the power of technology to teach children

E-learning platforms like KooBits recognise that children today – the Gen-Z – have grown up around a plethora of interactive apps like Tik Tok, Instagram and YouTube all around them.

However, our learning systems are still centered around textbooks, worksheets and assessment papers. Our children need more than that to be engaged learners, and there is a dire need to evolve our teaching mechanisms with similar interactive technology.

KooBits has applied this to math. With high-quality content, an interactive interface, and intelligent software, KooBits has mastered the formula to capture students’ attention, and direct it towards a math learning experience.

2. KooBits uses child-motivation methodologies to build confidence 

KooBits’ product design has led to students becoming so interested in math practice that the website is closed at 10 pm every day. By 6 am the next morning, when the website opens up, there are hundreds of eager students queuing up to do math problems.

The product design is based on child-motivation methodologies:

  • Gamification: The platform uses gamification with reward mechanisms, like points, that children receive as they answer questions and make correct choices. The style keeps kids motivated to keep doing more.  
  • Healthy Competition: Top scorers also get featured on a live leaderboard. Students eagerly track their performance against their peers, and even challenge each other.
  • Personalization: With KooBits’ AI diagnostic technology, each child has a personalized learning journey that adapts to their learning stage. Whether a child is in foundational or advanced stages, the technology assigns questions that are challenging enough to stretch their mind, but yet not overly difficult to demotivate the child. This builds confidence and motivates them to keep learning.

3. KooBits understands that top students learn by understanding fundamental concepts

A common pattern observed by top students is that they have a solid understanding of fundamental concepts. Hence, they are able to study “smarter” and avoid having to spend long hours on arduous practice or memorization. They are also easily able to extend these concepts to more complex problems.

KooBits makes it easy for students to visualize math concepts with 1000+ animated videos, games and stories. With this, even theoretical math concepts like percentages and fractions are illustrated in ways that are easy to understand:

Students are better able to understand fundamental math principles and not simply rote memorization. Their learning is deeper and better prepares them for more difficult problems in the future. And because they understand better, they are more engaged in the learning process to study “smarter” rather than “harder”. 

4. 20 Minutes of daily KooBits exercise trumps long hours of practice 

Research has found that regular practice, in small doses, can create and strengthen neural pathways for deeper understanding, which eventually leads to stronger performance. This trumps “over-practicing” with mountains of assessment papers or short-burst tuitions just before exams. 

It is with this science-backed principle that KooBits encourages 20 minutes of daily practice with questions that are challenging-enough to stretch a child’s learning potential effectively, but also not so challenging that the child gets demotivated.

According to KooBits, top students log on for an average of 17 mins each Saturday and Sunday to get their daily dose of math. When learning is fun and effective, new habits form easily. 

5. Over 180,000 students & 400 teachers trust KooBits

To ensure that KooBits is relevant and aligned to the needs of its learners, the platform is co-developed with top educators, child development experts, students and parents in each country. Through these collaborations, KooBits clearly understand learners’ goals and difficulties and in turn, have created a comprehensive platform to suit different needs:

  • Students can enjoy the interactive, media-rich Student Portal to learn math.
  • Parents can monitor their child’s progress through the Parent App, understand their strengths and weaknesses and guide them along.
  • Teachers and schools can use the Teacher’s Portal to teach more effectively.

It is no surprise that KooBits has a large community of learners; over 180,000 students and 400 school teachers are on board.

In fact, many KooBits users remark on how they have developed a love for math, and as a result score top marks. Just take a look at what some of them are saying:

“I like KooBits because it has helped in my mathematics.  I have now improved from 70-80+ to 90++. KooBits also has competitions that we can take part in and compete to see how well we fare.”

Ee Juin, CHIJ School

“KooBits is now a daily math ‘tuition’ for me. Every day, I wonder what the next day’s challenges will be. I look forward to doing it daily as points are accumulated.”

Ezra, Pei Hwa Presbyterian Primary School
