Arithmetic Notebook

A smart notebook designed for story problems. Students can choose a custom solution strategy while Algebrakit offers support with automatic evaluation, formative feedback and progress indication.

Example: Discount stickers

This example shows how solving story problems requires many thinking steps

  • Deciding how to apply the stickers effectively
  • Choosing a strategy: find the total discount first or calculate the discounted price for each product separately. Both approaches are correct.
  • Calculating the discounts using percentages.

You don’t want to split the story problem into these smaller problems, as it would eliminate the essence of story problems. Instead, Arithmetic Notebook presents one input area. Support is offered when asked by clicking the Hint or Check button.
