A learning program for Algebra that supports school preparation of a wide range: from public schools to prestigious private high schools.
Students learn the content by repeatedly working on a set of questions that are similar to each other.
This allows them to progress while at the same time assess their understanding of the lesson.
Levels are optimized for each school year, with materials covering topics from high school entrance examinations to some pre-study for high school.
Similar to “Ultimate Shapes for junior high school students,” it consists of grades 1 to 3 corresponding to 1st to 3rd year of junior high school. Grades 4 to 6 textbooks are designed in preparation for high school entrance examinations and for high school algebra.
※There will be one textbook for each grade, from Grade 1 to 6.
Grid lines are provided in the textbook to aid thinking
When solving algebra problems, it is very important to show the work that leads to your answer. In the textbook, "KIWAMI Algebra," grid lines are provided throughout, and this allows students to review their thinking process.
Review contents from previous grades to accelerate understanding
Problems from previous grades appear in "KIWAMI Algebra." By studying while occasionally doing reviews when needed, students will have a better understanding of what they are currently learning. On the app, they can review questions from previous grades at any time.
By repeatedly working on questions that are simliar to each other, the students will be able to retain the knowledge better.
The uniqueness of "KIWAMI Algebra" is the reviewing process that is repeatedly done to solidify knowledge. "Mini Review" questions are a set of problems that establish the newly learned knowledge, and "Mini Review Plus" is used to practice the contents from "Mini Review." If they struggle on a problem from there, they can do it over by choosing the same problem number on the app, to self-check their understanding. They are also able to work on problems from previous chapters if they think that more practice is needed.
Introduction videos that promotes proper understanding
Similar to "KIWAMI Algebra," the first step is for the students to solve the problems by watching our instructional videos. By watching the animations included in the videos, they will realize how to solve problems, and obtain a deeper understanding and interest in algebra.
Graded Materials not Based on School Year
Since the material grades are not based on school year levels, students can learn according to their level of understanding.
Children's understanding of shapes and algebra can vary greatly, so the learning process must be carefully tailored to their level of understanding. For this reason, "KIWAMI AAA+" has adopted a promotion system for its curriculum that is not based on the school year of students. In this system, students can study in advance or review whenever it is needed for them. By studying "Ultimate Algebra" from grades 10 to 1, students will eventually be able to solve problems they wouldn't have learned until much later in their schooling.
By separating "shapes" and "algebra" into two fields, students can learn math systematically.
While your child's “Geometric Thinking” is being developed, spatial awareness also improves at the same time. Spatial awareness is one of the abilities to imagine things from scratch and visualize the invisible. This is heavily related to the concept of time and creativity and could result in better management skills and creativity. For example, children will begin to think like "I can do this within thirty minutes," or "I can put a chair of this size in this room". All are related and thus, this knowledge can be applied in settings outside of school. "KIWAMI AAA+" focuses not only on teaching knowledge required for entrance examinations but also nurtures spatial awareness, an essential skill for the real world and their future.
Tablet × Textbook
The "AAA" in "KIWAMI AAA+" respectively represents "AI (Artificial Intelligence)," "Animation," and "AR (Augmented Reality)." The "+" symbolizes the textbook, which will be used in addition to the "AAA". Using our app and website, students will be able to learn math with integrated lessons taught by a teacher and accompanied by an animated video that makes studying easier and more fun. Furthermore, students will also repeatedly review the contents of their textbook, making their study sessions more effective.
AI AI will accumulate data about students' learning process
The AI analyzes each student's strengths and weaknesses, which will be utilized to customize problems. One example of this being used is the review problems to step up to an upper level. The longer they use the app, the more personalized it will be.
Animation Study while watching animation
Introduction, hints, and explanations for problems integrate real-life teachers and animations in videos.
AR AR is utilized to foster imagination
Two-dimensional shapes will turn 3D through the tablet's camera. Being able to move and look at the shape from every angle helps visualize shapes in the mind.
+Text App + Textbook
Contents of the textbook are integrated into the app for iPad. We have an app version and a website version. (AR function and "play with shapes" can't be used in the website version.)
By using this system, students will repeatedly work on similar problems and gradually start to challenge harder questions as they continue in their studies. In the end, students will become capable of solving complex problems. This trains them to work out the structure of a problem and solve it, even if they haven't memorized the formulas.
Effective Way to Use KIWAMI AAA+
Utilize hybrid learning by using both the textbook
and the app in tandem to make studying much more time-efficient.
Start the "app" you want to learn from and choose "textbook"
Log into KIWAMI AAA+ with your own account.
Choose the "field" you want to study
Once a textbook is chosen, a list of fields will appear.
Choose the "unit" you want to study
Once you have chosen a field, next choose a unit to study. A learning progress is shown for each unit. If all the progress turns into 100%, you can take the "Check your knowledge" test.
Watch the introduction videos and challenge the problems in the app
When starting a new unit, try solving the problems right after watching the introduction video. Please start with the ones in the app. Videos for "hints" and "explanation" are also available.
Review the field you studied using the textbook
You will be writing directly in the textbook for this step. By taking time to fill notes in your textbook physically, knowledge will be further reinforced.
Challenge the "Check your knowledge" test, and the "step up" test
Take a "Check your knowledge" test for each field. Once you pass all of the "Check your knowledge" test you can take the "Step up" test. For the "Step up" test, Artificial Intelligence will pick and ask about problems the students have struggled with in the past. If you pass this personalized test for you, off you go to the next grade!
About KIWAMI Algebra
Where can I study "KIWAMI Algebra"?
Please contact your nearest tutoring school. You can check it in "Serch for Tutoring Schools".
Are there tests in this curriculum?
Two types of tests "Check your knowledge" test and "Step up" test are provided. "Check your knowledge" test is to assess students' progress in the subject. The "Step up" test is to examine their proficiency to see if they are ready for the next grade. Students can take the tests on either a PC or a tablet device.
