Frequently Asked Questions
What is Smartli and how do I get it?
Smartli is an online math learning portal that provides elementary learning material for kids in the age group of 5 years and above. Smartli follows the ‘Singapore Math’ models that is gaining immense international popularity and being adopted by many schools globally. The content of Smartli is in the form of engaging 2D videos that explain the various math concepts in a visual way.
How is Smartli similar to the Common Core standard of math?
Many schools in the United States have adopted the Common Core standard for math which has a very close link to Singapore Math. Infact, most states follow standards with the same principles even if they don’t call them Common Core. Both methods put emphasis on the process, as much as the end result, which means following specific steps to show how they arrive at the correct answer. Students are encouraged to procure a deep understanding of a topic and the focus is on the quality of what has been learnt rather than the quantity. It is easy to spot many strategies of Singapore Math being used in Common Core.
How is Smartli different from other online math resources?
Smartli has been specially designed and curated keeping in mind the requirement of the different age groups. Unlike other math learning websites, Smartli uses the ‘Singapore math’ model which builds math skills and aims to make the child not only ‘learn’ but also ‘love’ math.
Each lesson has been broken down to bite-sized videos ranging from 2 to 4 minutes. The math concepts are explained in an interesting and engaging way by the medium of 4 robots, Professor Fifi and his 3 student robots through experiences and examples that are easily relatable by every child.
