Matritech

Matritech is an Education Program developed by Top E-learning Software Technology (TEST). The word Matritech is derived from the three words Mathematics, Tricks and Technology. The program comprises of two main sections which are the tutorials, also referred to as the learning section and the quizzing or the gaming section. The tutorial section consists of mathematically-related items with some tricks that would help students, in primary, secondary and even tertiary institutions, develop their mathematical skills. The quizzing or the gaming section is where students can play games either online at 'matritech.inz.cc' or offline on what is taught in the tutorial.

Introduction


Research has proven that one of the weakest academic subject areas in schools is Mathematics. Moreover, according to Isaac Francis Williams, a senior lecturer at the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom,“Year after year, many students leave high school without understanding the basic concept of Mathematics”. Let’s come to our very own Caribbean countries where there is a great phobia for Mathematics by many. Caribbean Examination Council (CXC) has proven that less than half of the students who sat the Mathematics exam during the years 2004 to 2009 were able to secure passes of grades 1, 2 or 3. As for the 2011 Caribbean Secondary Examination Council (CSEC) Mathematics examination, the overall pass rate in Grenada was just 31.26%.The question is, “What can be done to help reduce on the poor performance in Mathematics?”  Statistics have shown, and it is quite evident that technology is increasing rapidly and is widespread.

Objectives

To help enhance the efficient use of technology.

• To get students interested in Mathematics so that they might do better in that particular area.

• To get people to appreciate Mathematics.

Problem Statement

We are living in an age where E-learning is on the go in most educational institutions in the United States and in many other foreign nations. Unfortunately, in Grenada there is little adaptation to this advancement. As a result this may cause some students at the different educational levels in the Caribbean to perform poorly in some subject areas, in particular Mathematics. Moreover, students are not making efficient use of the available technology.


Solution


To create a Mathematical educational program that will teach students the basics of mathematics, which are addition, subtraction, division and multiplication. The program will be linked to a website so that students can have access to it where ever they may go. The managing team at TEST thinks this will help students use technology wisely to educate themselves while having fun.
