TeachMe supports mathematical literacy around the world with its new app, Mathematics by TeachMe through Free Basics from Facebook
TeachMe (www.TeachMe.com) believes that mathematics is a core educational skill that every child needs to develop for future success. In partnership with Facebook’s Free Basics, Mathematics by TeachMe provides kids and youth free access to hundreds of ways to develop their skills and practice mathematics online with math-based games and tools.
“Our partnership with Internet.org is an incredible opportunity to help further the personal development of children and youth in more than 35+ countries around the world,” said Bill Kara, Founder - TeachMe. “It’s easy for those of us that work with technology everyday to take access to the internet, and all the benefits it provides, for granted. Mathematics by TeachMe is our way to help support the development of mathematical literacy around the world and Internet.org provides an incredible platform to reach two-thirds of the world where socio-economic status is a barrier to accessing the internet.”
Without fundamental skills and strong mathematical literacy, kids and youth can struggle to understand the role mathematics plays in the world around them; how it can impact their decision making process; and many day-to-day activities, from creating a household budget to how to save for post secondary education. Mathematics by TeachMe aims to support learning regardless of current education level, socio-economic background or language (currently supporting activities in English, French and Spanish.)
“We’re excited to launch Free Basics with Mathematics by TeachMe,” said Jackie Chang at Facebook. “Through our work with content partners, mobile operators, nonprofits and local governments, we hope to address the barriers to internet adoption faced by much of the world and expand access to high quality life changing educational content.”
TeachMe is a trusted partner and resource in the education-technology community, developing high quality, affordable educational products that capture students’ attention, encouraging them to practice longer and more often. Since launching, TeachMe students have answered over 100 million questions and counting. TeachMe has offices in Los Angeles, California and Edmonton, Alberta. Really good things happen when developers, educators, students and parents work together to create learning tools. For more information, visit TeachMe.com.
Mathematics by TeachMe, is a feature rich, highly optimized mobile application that provides hundreds of different ways to practice mathematics with over 1 million unique questions. The application is available exclusively through a partnership with Facebook’s Free Basics platform accessible to users in more than 35+ countries world-wide.
Free Basics is a Facebook-led initiative with the goal of making internet access available to the two-thirds of the world who are not yet connected and bring the same opportunities that connectivity offers to everyone. For more information on the impact of Free Basics, visit Internet.org.
