The ideas behind AlgebraKiT

AlgebraKiT is a system that aims to solve a number of challenges when creating online math questions.

Educational principles

Support step-by-step answers
Math education is more about understanding than about knowledge. ‘How’ a student solves a problem is just as important as the answer itself. This is why AlgebraKiT allows students to solve math problems in multiple steps. Every step is stored and evaluated automatically.

Hints and error feedback
AlgebraKiT is able to support the student through hints and error feedback. This allows students to solve more problems by themselves.

Unlimited training
Learning mathematics involves mastering a number of skills, such as arithmetic or manipulating algebraic expressions. Such skills are learnt through practice. That is why questions of AlgebraKiT can be randomised, which means that values, variables and the structure of expressions are different each time a new problem is started.

Integrate into learning systems

Math components
AlgebraKiT’s tools are made available as components that can be used in existing learning environments. So students never ‘log in’ to AlgebraKiT, but work from the learning system that hosts the AlgebraKiT technology.
