  1. Matisto Emulating a Private Tutor

  2. Company Background • Founded in 2004 • Works at several schools, with hundreds of students, who completed thousands of exercises. • Launched website to the American market last month. • Endorsed by Dr. Hanna Pearl - Math superintended of Israel DOE.

  3. Higher Education • Higher income • More job opportunities • Lower unemployment rates • Acquire skills, communicate clearly • Gain knowledge about the world and community 97% of parents: “higher education is very important or necessary”

  4. Few teach many One directional: Source  Recipient Slow learning process Public Schools System

  5. Vital subject in applying for high school Specific math requirements Extensive math chapters in admission exams Requires intensive practice Execution rather than just knowledge Planning Performing and completing tasks Decision making Automation of basic operations Arithmetic Combining terms, variable isolation Data capture Develop math skills: quantitative thinking, abstract reasoning, visual spatial, etc. MATH

  6. Tutoring Advantages • Tutor provides the theory and directs the practice • Real-time feedback • The tutor’s reaction is associated with the event • Immediately practice - new information is stored in short term memory • Pin-pointing specific problems and addressing them • Exercises match the student level

  7. One-on-one Effectiveness One-on-one tutoring grades are 2σ greater than those achieved through classroom (Bloom, Chicago 1984). Overwhelming research shows higher grades, study skills, and confidence * NCLB 2002 allocates federal funds for private tutoring Private Tutoring * Slavin et al., 1991 Karweit, & Madden, 1989 Wasik, 1990 McArthur, Stasz, & Zmuidzinas, 1990 Hock, Schumaker, & Deshler, 1995 Lepper et al., 1997 Merrill et al., 1995 Simmons, Fuchs, Mathes & Hodge, 1995 Vadasy, Jenkins, Antil, Wayne & O’Connor, 1997 Classroom Study 50% 98%

  8. Matisto – Your Practice Tutor • Provides feedback, corrects mistakes and rewards success • More effective 2-5 times more exercises per hour • Creating a personal profile for each student • Tracking errors, successes, think time and usage history • Motivation • Game like practice: animation, sound, score, levels • exercises that match the user’s abilities • Huge supply of exercises in each subject and level

  9. Advantages for Schools • All the students activity is logged into a database • Graphs and reports about time spent, progress and difficulties on each subject • Accurate information about the student level without quizzes • Saves time for teachers “unproductive work” • Checking homework • Creating the quizzes • Serving as “cups” while students are taking the quiz. • Checking and grading the quizzes

  10. How Come no One Has Done it Before? Hundreds of articles, lectures and courses University experiments and military simulators Complex design – Simulate human thinking Know it all tutor Huge effort High time-to-implement RULES ENGINE Extensible Knowledge Base EXPERT SYSTEM Intelligent Tutoring Systems

  11. Matisto’s Method A B

  12. Architecture Explanations Users Database Graphs & Reports • Sound and animation • External Resources • Examples • User Interaction By school, class, exercise, student. • Details • School/Class/Teacher • Math Profile • All Exercises • Complete history Exercise Generators • Specific Ex • User Level • User Profile Math Library • Finding Errors • Pinpointing problems • Help System Graphic System Exercise Logic • Display Exercises • User Inputs • Animations • Sound Effects • State analysis • Presenting next step • Allowing shortcuts
