Nokia’s Mobile Maths platform can be accessed from your Smartphone

The great thing about Nokia mobile maths is that this platform, which is for Grades 10 – 12 Maths students  in South Africa, is available on any Internet-connected mobile phone, tablet or PC, and is “zero rated” for use on the MTN and Cell C networks. the sole aim is to help South African high school pupils to better master the subject of mathematics.

Access to the Nokia Mobile Mathematics (MoMaths) portal has been “zero rated” on MTN and Cell C, which means that learners don’t pay for the data they use while accessing the service.
Now that the end of the year exams are on the horizon, the 10 000+ CAPS-related exercises of varying difficulty can be used for revision. Learners can also collaborate with others, compare achievements and get guidance on how to progress.

The new service is fully browser-based and works on any phone, tablet or PC without needing to download an app. After a quick sign-up process, students can practise problems in a number of categories like finance, trigonometry, calculus and statistics.
While working on questions, learners can read background theory, see examples of solved problems and engage with others. Points are awarded for successfully completed exercises and, if a learner chooses to, they can share their points and compete with other students. Research suggests the MoMaths programme can improved the maths score average by 14 percentage points.

This service was piloted in 2009 with various groups but now it is free to the public. This is an offer that every Maths learner should take advantage of. This is free Maths practice at your fingertips. Not only is this a great service but the good news is that learners will be able to access this service for as long as they want without incurring any cost.
