Get a Full Overview with Bootcamps

Bootcamps are interactive sets of tasks with animations that are set on different difficulty levels. Get to know the basics of math in a fun and effective way. Each Bootcamp contains 3 sections: Why, how, and interactive activities.

An Encyclopedia Customized to Your Needs

The encyclopedia provides you with everything, all in one place. The encyclopedia contains separate categories such as, “numbers and measuring” and “algebra”, which are further divided into multiple subcategories. If you are searching for something specific, use the search bar located at the top of the page. Help is easily found regardless of the topic. Each theme is explained with rule-boxes and followed by examples. The encyclopedia is genius when practicing for tests or exams, but also at other times to get a better understanding of a certain theme.

Math Essentials

Practice makes perfect! Math Essentials are located in the portal and will provide you with everything you need to succeed in math. Math Essentials contain rules, examples, and tasks based on math curriculums followed by task-answers.

Math Essentials is a great way of getting through the curriculum, in addition to being a super way to practice.

Study Tips and Problem Solving

The curriculum can seem overwhelming at times. How do I consume the whole curriculum? The Portal offers several tips and tricks for exams, studying, and problem-solving. An effective study-technique grants you a higher level of learning and understanding, as well as better memorization of the topic.
