An advanced version of "KIWAMI Shapes"
that fosters spatial awareness!
Training to visualize the shapes in your mind is the key to solving figure problems.
"Ultimate Shapes", the standard for learning geometry, has evolved further,
attracting attention not only in Japan but also overseas educational fields.
An "animated teaching material" that cultivates the mind to intuitively understand shapes.
The three-dimensional figures that typically appear in the upper-grade lessons are covered in the lower grades for KIWAMI Shapes. This is because even lower grades students will be able to replay the images in their minds as they watch our abundant animations.
Thoughtfully designed "seven fields" for spiral learning
Approximately 3,000 figure problems are classified into seven fields that are subdivided into 10 levels. As you progress through the levels, the content of the questions becomes more advanced.
It's fun to challenge the advanced levels while checking your improvement!
We use a promotion system that allows students to challenge themselves regardless of their grade or age.
Students can start with grade 1 and move on to the next level when their skills have been retained. The joy of clearing more and more stages, just like in a game, will bring out the children's challenging spirit and desire to learn in a fun way. In addition, there are confirmation tests and achievement tests so that students can check their skills as they proceed.
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 Shapes
Where can I study KIWAMI Shapes?
Please contact your nearest tutoring school, elementary school, after-school care, or kindergarten. You can check it in "Serch for Tutoring Schools".
The contents that are taught seem fairly hard. Can children understand the contents without being left behind?
The curriculum is designed for selecting the grade according to the children's proficiency; not grades at school. They can study at their own pace and build their knowledge and ability comfortably.
