Systems of Measurement: British Imperial vs U.S. Customary Units

Systems of Measurement: British Imperial vs U.S. Customary Units

In today’s post we’re going to take another look at the differences we find in mathematics in different parts of the world. This time, we’re going to compare the British Imperial and U.S. Customary systems of measurement and find out why their equivalences are different. Two systems of measurement have traditionally been used in Anglophone […]

Division Exercises Solved Using the Singapore Method

Division Exercises Solved Using the Singapore Method

In this post, we’re going a reference a previous one where we looked at the different types of division problems that exist according to how the problem is formulated. Taking these problems as examples, we’re going to look at different strategies to solve division exercises using the Singapore method. The first are division exercises involving repetition or equal […]

Coordinates: What They Are Used for and Some Examples with Smartick

Coordinates: What They Are Used for and Some Examples with Smartick

Cartesian coordinates are numbers that indicate the position of a point in a given space. In this case a two-dimensional space, a plane. René Descartes was the first mathematician to formally make use of them, which is where the name “Cartesian” comes from. How do Cartesian coordinates work? If we want to indicate something on a plane, […]

Is it good to “mix” alternative algorithms such as ABN with traditional ones?

Is it good to “mix” alternative algorithms such as ABN with traditional ones?

We often receive enquires about the compatibility of the use of Smartick and learning alternative algorithms that differ from the more traditional ones. To ease the concerns of moms and dads who might think that what their children learn at school could conflict with what they work on with Smartick, we wanted to offer an answer in this post. We’ll […]
