)-- Knomadix announced a new partnership with Arlington ISD, with support from GM Arlington Assembly employees, to implement a cutting-edge digital solution to help students master numerical concepts and operations. Roark Elementary School will be the first school in the Arlington ISD to implement Knomadix’s Number Sense solution. Number Sense is the only app that features a dynamic number board to help students master math skills while developing critical thinking and cognitive skills. Number Sense incorporates groundbreaking artificial intelligence-based problem and solution engines that enable users to develop foundational Number Sense skills. Number Sense activates spatial-temporal reasoning that develops students’ advanced math comprehension and fluency.
“We’re excited to provide students at Roark Elementary with interactive math practice to enhance students’ understanding of math concepts and critical thinking skills,” says Ramesh Balan, CEO, chief architect, and founder of Knomadix. “We view this partnership as a starting point for our on-going relationship with Arlington ISD to impact students’ confidence in numbers and math.”
The new partnership will make it possible for students to use Number Sense in the classroom and at home. Students will benefit from personalized and immediate feedback through Digit, the app’s mood-changing character. Number Sense will also track the progress of the students on provide reports on their progress to parents and teachers.
Roark’s Partnership with Knomadix and the support from GM Arlington Assembly give Roark Elementary a unique opportunity to master their sense of numbers. “We’re delighted to have this new partnership. We want to engage students in mathematics and want students to develop number sense, since it is such an important concept to master in elementary school,” says Anna Anderson, principal of Roark Elementary. Dr. Jill Hollander, VP of Education and Corporate Partnerships at Knomadix, states, “Mastering number sense skills is powerful for Roark students. The research shows student mastery of foundational math concepts in primary grades impacts students’ future success far beyond high school. These skills are the building blocks for success in college and the workforce.”
At the launch of the program, Roark Elementary students interacted with professionals from GM and Knomadix while also given the chance to win a tablet and take a picture with Digit.
“The employees at GM Arlington Assembly are very excited to support the Arlington ISD in their partnership with Knomadix,” said Anbu Subramaniyan, the chair of GM Arlington’s Women in Manufacturing group. “The auto industry is going through rapid advancements, and we’re investing in the communities where we hope we’ll find our future employees, especially those who will be going into STEM fields. It’s crucial that we create enthusiasm in math and science at earlier ages.”
A student’s number sense skills refer to a student’s ability to: perform mental math, understand numbers, understand the relationship between numbers, and apply number skills to solve real-world problems. According to Keith Devlin, a mathematician at Stanford University, number sense skills are important because it encourages students to develop creativity and confidence with numbers. Devlin states that the number sense concept is the most important mathematical concept in 21st Century K-12 education. Math is the central element that prepares students for success in STEM and careers.
