Welcome to
THE MATHU CSI PROJECT

Changing lives, one community at a time.

The MathU Teaching Emporium CSI Project

Welcome to the MathU CSI Project, a measurable, accountable and impactful way for your company to invest their CSI budget in addressing South Africa’s educational challenges – specifically, in using technology to put age- and skill level-appropriate, curriculum compatible math’s in the hands of learners, wherever the are.

 

The MathU CSI Project is an initiative which enables companies to meaningfully invest in the future of the youth by advancing education in less fortunate areas. The initiative gives school children access to a mobile device preloaded with the MathU Infinity application, this application has all the required content to pass mathematics and physical science. The integrated MathU elements combine to form a world-class educational tool which students can use to learn mathematics and physical science at their own pace, at home and at school.

 

The project has been specifically designed to meet Africa’s unique geographical and intermittent internet connectivity challenges. The app has split the functionality to allow learners to access their exercises and assessments of the MathU Infinity platform with no data connectivity and thus ensuring constant access to work.

The program had a positive impact on the learners because we had 4 distinctions in the Mathematics department after a very long drought.

Project Package

The CSI pack boasts a collection of products any student needs to start and succeed on their new digital education journey. The pack enables a user to improve their marks while allowing the sponsor to receive continuous feedback on the student’s performance and live access to their progress.

Each student receives the following:

Mobile Android device

Each student added to the CSI program will receive an approved Android device. This device is budget friendly and powerful enough to assist with all the student needs.

App and Content

Each device is preloaded with the MathU Infinity App and all the needed content required for Math and Science. This content is located on the device and is accessible offline.

SIM card

Each device is allocated a SIM card, this will allow the student to receive and use data for the concept videos and Connect To Tutor functions.

Connect To Tutor

With the device and SIM allocation the student can now enjoy the online functionality. Each CSI Student will receive access to the online tutoring function. This will allow them to be helped by highly skilled educators from any where by a click of a button.

MathU Starter Pack

Each CSI student will receive a MathU branded starter pack containing all the necessary items to set them up for their academic journey.

Solar Charger

To ensure the student does not fall behind or be hindered by electricity constraints each one will receive a solar charger.

Sponsor functionality and access:

Dashboard Data

Each student enrolled will be added to the relevant dashboard group. This allows access to the sponsoring entity to monitor the students progress and see how well they are doing and how much effort they are putting towards their goal. As the dashboard is a live environment, tracking and reporting can happen at any time.

MDM (Mobile Device Management)

A device management system allows the admin/entity to allow and deactivate the device functions. By using a MDM, MathU can ensure the devices are use only as intended and manage the data usage. Students who preform well can have access to more functions as incentive. The MDM also shows where the devices are and when last they have been used.

It has most certainly made a difference, not only in the mastery of the subject, but most certainly too in the motivation of our matrics when they were heading to the finishing line. Please accept our sincere gratitude for this great contribution to our school.

Our Platforms

The platforms that are included in our CSI package are the MathU Infinity App, the MathU Dashboard and Connect To Tutor.

MathU Infinity App

The MathU Infinity App is an online learning platform that uses AI to help your child improve their math skills and confidence. The MathU Infinity App combines concept videos, exercises, and assessments and uses adaptive learning to deliver a unique experience to each learner – and achieve phenomenal results.

MathU Dashboard

The MathU Dashboard is an all-in-one platform that lets you keep track of each student’s progress or monitor entire classes. It uses clear visuals to display key metrics, and each display is customizable. The MathU Dashboard can dramatically reduce the admin burden on educators, allowing them to focus on teaching. At the same time, it provides the insights needed for effective interventions.

Connect To Tutor

With an ever changing world filled with constant changes, the need for assisting students needs to adapt and keep up.

Connect To Tutor is MathU’s online tutoring solution.

The main functionality is to create a live session between student and tutor, removing the need for a shared location or scheduled times and thus assisting anyone, anywhere with the best tutor. Any session completed by CTT is recorded and will be sent to the student for later use if needed.
