WhyMathematics is a powerful gateway subject into quality post-school opportunities. South African Grade 9 learners from under-resourced schools are, on average, 3-4 years behind grade level.1 Only 1 in 5 learners who write matric will pass pure mathematics.2 More than half of the learners who start school will drop out before matric with no qualification.3 What we doWe use tutor-driven e-learning solutions to bridge gaps in mathematics. OLICO combines technology & tutors to create a pathway into high school mathematics and beyond. For Grades 6-9, our open online learning system & offline interventions improve number sense & mathematical fluency. For Grades 10-12, we have built custom-designed tutorial videos and an extensive Free National Benchmark Test (NBT) practice course. How we measureWe measure each learner’s pre- and post- intervention scores to assess progress over time. OLICO’s e-learning tool provides instant feedback on learner performance to highlight areas requiring additional intervention. OLICO conducts regular offline assessments as the most accurate measurement of learner progress. Rigorous testing at Diepsloot incubation hub means the intervention is proven and ready to scale.
