Take a Hike on Knowre’s Walk Me Through Trail

Posted by Bara Levitt on 7/31/19 12:51 PM

“You’ll have a great time,” the visitor center greeter said as we headed towards the trail in upstate New York. The hike was described as fun, but challenging, and we figured, despite rarely ever hiking, that we’d all be fine. Countless hours later we descended the trail thankful to be alive. Simply put, the trail was much more difficult than we could have ever imagined. While there were optional ladders and ledges placed at certain parts, in others we couldn’t figure out why these supremely helpful elements were frustratingly missing.

It is important when tackling a challenge or learning something new that there are certain supports in place to maximize desired outcomes, decrease frustration, and maintain motivation (at one point on the trail I told my friends it was best they just leave me there). Without the availability of these critical elements it’s all too easy to give up.

As an education technology company, we work diligently to create innovative and supportive products to help students learn and teachers teach. From our “Walk Me Through” technology to our personalized recommendation algorithm, Knowre develops features to support student learning in order to promote self-efficacy and student agency. We believe that all students can be successful - that students don’t hate math, they hate being frustrated. If teachers had the luxury of working one-on-one with all students all the time, students would receive the support we know they need and deserve.

A fundamental tenet of Knowre, and something that drives all of us in our daily lives, is the belief that all students can be successful - that anyone can be good at math. It is a belief that stems from our origins as an after-school math academy in South Korea. It is a belief that is core to every aspect of our product. It is a belief that drives every decision we make for our students and teachers.

The misnomer that there are "math people" and "non-math people" is just that, a misnomer.

"Students Don't Hate Math, They Hate Being Frustrated"

Posted by Sam Cressman on 6/17/19 1:48 PM

“I’m not good at math.”

“I JUST don't get it!" 

"I don't know how to do it!"

As educators, we’ve all heard this before. Students often find themselves frustrated when it comes to their math abilities. The reasons are numerous and we may feel that they are "excuses" but in fact, students want to excel.  When students are having difficulty and become frustrated, they will respond with, "I hate math" or "I can't do it", and some stop trying altogether.
