HOW DO MATHLEAKS WORK?
HOW DOES MATHLEAKS WORK FOR COMPUTERS?
You can study with Mathleak’s E-courses free of charge via the web. On your mobile and computer, all mathematics topics are connected according to the curriculum. Theory, examples and assignments with associated facts, clues and solutions with several innovative functions- everything is gathered in one place and is easy to use.
WHY CAN'T I SEE ALL CONTENT?
In the Standard Access free version, you get solutions for High School courses Algebra 1-2 and Geometry at E-level. By subscribing to Mathleaks Premium, you get access to solutions for all textbooks and Mathleaks E-courses. You can subscribe to Premium here on the website.

How do Mathleaks E-courses work?
WHAT IS THE BENEFIT OF Mathleaks E-COURSES?
In a time where there is a shortage of teachers as academic demands continue to rise, students cannot be sure they will receive the time or help they need. Some schools have difficulty adapting to individual learning needs, so students are required to adapt to the system. Education’s focus on textbooks and lessons in a classroom setting makes it difficult for some students to study by themselves effectively.
Students should be able to control their studies more effectively without necessarily spending more time. As a rule, students should not have to contact their teacher or use expensive homework aids to avoid getting behind in their studies. There should be access to teaching material that a student can use with the help of today’s technology. This lack of insight costs money, wastes time, and unnecessarily lowers student confidence. Many people think that they cannot do math or even think that they are stupid and give up, because teaching materials are not developed for self-study. These assumptions are wrong from the beginning.
Mathleaks is the only teaching material that includes self-instructional solutions, calculation steps and explanations with moving images and graphs that visualize the math being learned. Best of all, Mathleaks can be directly linked to textbooks used in high school directly on the Mathleaks platform. All of this facilitates the comparison between different teaching materials so that a student never gets stuck and always is able to study according to the curriculum.
CAN MATHLEAK'S TEACHING MATERIAL REPLACE TEXTBOOKS?
Yes. Textbooks are expensive with limited learning opportunities. They are not educationally designed for modern education. Their main task is to follow the curriculum, but not to teach the math concepts themselves. Mathleak’s E-learning material is complete with theory, tasks, clues, solutions, and tests. These are all well connected to the curriculum and available on computer, phones and tablets. The E-courses can be printed via computer for physical copies, and can also be locked during lesson time. Mathleaks E-courses are available for Algebra 1&2 and Geometry. Precalculus and Calculus courses will be launched in the winter of 2020 / spring 2021.

HOW DO I USE MATHLEAK'S E-COURSES?
Browse our selection of courses and choose the textbook you want to study via the course selection. Watch the films in the intro, and then study with theory, exercises, solutions and tests for all sub-chapters according to the curriculum. It is important that you use the textbook as a complement to Mathleaks, and not vice versa.

WHAT DOES THE RESEARCH SAY ABOUT SOLUTIONS?
Mathematics is based on understanding and logical reasoning. Our solutions are more than something you just write or memorize, but instead are something you read through and think about. That is why we include discussions, alternative solutions, and extras in our solutions.
There is also research that points to the benefits of explanatory learning solutions. John Sweller developed the theory of cognitive load, and he believes that cognitive load is high for common problem solving. This causes ineffective learning and can be advantageously replaced by studying with solutions. Read the science article here
DO SOLUTIONS FACILITATE STUDENT LEARNING?
Yes. Students’ mathematical skills are largely developed during their own work through training and problem solving of exercises from a textbook. When practicing math, you do not want to get stuck on an exercise. In today’s textbooks, there is usually only one answer at the back of the book, and if you do not understand the process that is of no great help.
Mathleaks focuses on pedagogy and the way to the answers. The tasks in our teaching material are divided into four levels with increasing difficulty. Each level has several tasks with associated facts, clues and solutions. Our solutions for both printed textbooks and our own e-learning material are self-instructional, which means that the student can plug in without getting stuck. A study at Thorildsplan’s upper secondary school showed that of students who had completed Mathleaks Premium, 40% passed more knowledge requirements than those who did not.
ARE THERE SOLUTIONS TO MY BOOK?
Under the textbooks menu there is a list of the books for which we have developed solutions.
WHY DOES THE SOLUTION NOT MATCH THE BOOK'S EXERCISE?
The same textbook often has several different prints or versions with small differences between them. This may involve changed numerical values, exchanged data or sometimes added information which may change the numbering. Please make sure to check the version via the book selection page in the Mathleaks app. We are grateful for any information about where the app does not match the book you are using so that the matching can be corrected.
WHEN ARE SOLUTIONS COMING FOR PRECALCULUS AND CALCULUS?
Work on Precalc and Caluclus will start in 2020 and will be launched in the spring of 2021.
