LONDON, October 26, 2016
Knewton, the world’s top adaptive learning company, and Alinea, a leading Danish publisher whose math content is used by the majority of students in grades 1-7 in Denmark, have launched CampMat. The adaptive math learning product tailors recommendations for students in grades 1-3 studying numbers and algebra.
“Starting strong in math is so important to a student’s future academic success,” said Cliff Hansen, managing director for Alinea. “Creating a personalized learning pathway based on hard data is a powerful way to improve the experience and the outcome.”
