Lau was looking for an educational app that can enrich her preschooler’s math learning journey. And here are the reasons why she loves Creta Class…
Though her daughter is still in preschool, Lau believes that math skills must be developed from an early age. She also believes that engaging math lessons will not only develop her daughter’s thinking skills, but also her interest in learning maths, and help her build good study habits. Her search led her to Creta Class, a math educational app that uses artificial intelligence (AI) to tailor its lessons according to a child’s cognitive abilities at different age range. This helps children develop the love of learning math. As the app caters for children aged three to eight – her daughter’s age group – Lau decided to sign up for its complimentary two-week trial to see if it suits her child.
Today, Lau’s four year-old daughter is able to do simple calculations. We caught up with her to find out how Creta Class has helped her daughter achieve this.
“We have to adapt to a rapidly changing world, including the way we teach our children.”
By learning math, children don’t only acquire mathematical knowledge but also an array of thinking methods and skills. Ms Lau understands that it can be challenging to get her child to learn math concepts and wants to give her daughter the best possible start in math.
It was a deliberate choice to use an app as an enrichment material. Lau commented that since the world is changing rapidly, it makes sense for parents to adapt their parenting and teaching approaches as well. “Everything has changed, including the way our children learn. As such, it’s probably not suitable to teach our children the way we were taught.”
Two features that impressed Lau were the systematic learning, as well as the convenience and flexibility of Creta Class. The app is designed to provide a learning pathway for children according to their ages to learn numbers, geometry, logic, measurement, problem solving, and memory. There are no advertisements, and is safe for children. Lau, a mother of two, says, “My daughter is able to study independently with Creta Class, allowing me to look after my two-year-old at the same time. The app’s daily learning reports also keeps me informed of my child’s progress.”
Lau’s family has seen visible improvement in her daughter’s mathematical abilities
Prior to using Creta Class, Lau and her husband used to teach their daughter how to do simple calculations using her fingers and toys. “After learning from Creta Class, my daughter is able to do addition and subtraction for numbers within ten really quickly!” she shared.
Creta Class’ lessons only take 15 minutes each, and is segmented into Math Video, Quiz, Math Talk, and report. The team behind the app finds that this is the optimal amount of time needed for children aged three to eight to learn effectively without any unnecessary pressure or stress. Lessons are best taken daily, with a simple programme review provided for children to revise past lessons every eight weeks. This systematic way of learning also helps establish a healthy study routine for children from a young age.
Creta Class’ learning content are designed to be engaging and effective
Each of Creta Class’ lessons are taught through immersive AI animation that are designed by its top notch AI research team. Fundamental maths concepts are taught through storytelling-based animation and interactive exercises, featuring lovable characters like Thundy, Momo, Bella (Lau’s daughter’s favourite!), and more.
The engaging animation and interactive maths exercises may look simple, but there’s more than meets the eye. All of Creta Class’ lessons are made for children by first understanding how children learn. Its research team painstakingly developed these by combing through huge amounts of data on children’s language behaviour, habit and interaction patterns, as well as cognitive preferences. That’s how they manage to come up with 15-minute lessons that are relevant and relatable to children within the targeted age group.
