SAfm: The Method That’s Revolutionising the Way the World Learns Maths



SAfm is a national radio station that has more than 175,000 daily listeners and 100,000 followers on social networks. Naledi Moleo’s show focuses on addressing issues that are of interest to South African youth, which led to them achieving the MTN Radio Award for best PBS Weekend Show in 2013.

One of the co-founders of Smartick, Javier Arroyo, took part in an interview during the weekly Saturday programme on SAfm that addresses issues of interest to children and adolescents.

Arroyo explained to presenter Naledi Moleo, that Smartick, the online method for learning maths, is aimed at children between the ages of 4 and 14 years old. Mathematical learning is exponential, and it has been shown that knowledge has to be acquired during the first years of children’s lives, in order to avoid any “gaps” in their learning.

The Artificial Intelligence on which Smartick is based allows the method to personalise a study plan that adapts to the level and learning pace of each child depending on how students solve the exercises during their 15-minute daily session. They work on all mathematical concepts; not only mental calculation, but also logic, reasoning, arithmetic, or geometry. Upon completion, parents receive a detailed report of the results achieved and knowledge acquired.
