Knomadix Announces Partnership with Local School District to Introduce Innovative Number Sense Solution

Knomadix announced a new partnership with a local school district last week, with support from GM Arlington Assembly employees, to implement a cutting-edge digital solution to help students master numerical concepts and operations.

“We’re excited to provide students 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. Number Sense will help students increase their confidence in working with numbers.

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 and report the progress of students to teachers and parents.

Knomadix is delighted to have this new partnership to help student gain the skill of number sense. 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 areimportant 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.

At the launch of the program, students interacted with professionals from GM and Knomadix while also given the chance to win prizes 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.”
