In our lives, we are surrounded by information and graphs are used to represent information. That is why it is important to know how to represent graphs. Not only is it ideal to know how to read and interpret them, but it also helps to know if someone is trying to deceive us when presenting data graphically. In this blog post, you will learn how to represent real world information with graphs, and also how to interpret that information. Plus there’s also something special in store, keep reading because you will be able to download a fantastic free book to continue learning about graphs. Teachi ..read more

At Smartick, we have numerous exercise sequences to learn and practice multiplication. Let’s take a look at some of the beginner multiplication activities in Smartick. Concept of Multiplication Multiplication is one of the most fundamental and useful mathematical operations, used in a wide variety of contexts in daily life and science. It is defined as a binary operation that combines two numbers, called factors, to produce a third number, called the product, and is commonly represented by the symbol “x”, “·” or “*”. For example, if we want to multiply 3 by 4, we write 3 x 4 = 12. In this case ..read more

In this post, we are going to explore the Pythagorean theorem and some of the proofs. Finally, we will look at how to solve a problem by applying this theorem. What is the Pythagorean Theorem? A theorem in mathematics is a proposition or statement that can be proved logically and rigorously, using mathematical rules and principles. A theorem is always valid and is used to establish fundamental truths in mathematics. The Pythagorean theorem has this name because the evidence, above all, is an effort of the Pythagorean school. Pythagoreanism was a philosophical and mathematical trend associated ..read more

In this post, we are going to look at a numerical and logic puzzle. It is very similar to Sudoku, as it requires mathematical and problem-solving skills. If you want, you can review Sudoku: What is it, and how is it solved? Now, let’s learn more about number puzzles! What is this number puzzle? It is a fun and educational mental challenge invented by Japanese mathematician Tetsuya Miyamoto in 2004. The puzzle consists of a grid of cells, just like Sudoku, but the cells are not divided into smaller regions but, instead, some cells are grouped and highlighted. They can be highlighted using a thi ..read more

Mathematics is a universal language that allows us to describe and understand the world around us. One of the fundamental branches of mathematics is algebra, and a key tool in this discipline is algebraic expressions. In this article, we will explore what algebraic expressions are, what they are used for and how they are used in the real world. Algebraic expressions appear in the transition from primary to secondary school or in middle school, around the age of 12. And once they appear, they are here to stay. As with most things that are new and different, algebraic expressions raise a lot of ..read more

Do you know what priming activities are? At Smartick we call them warm-up or activation activities. In this post, we will explain more about them and their benefits for learning. What is priming? Cognitive priming is a phenomenon in which prior exposure to one stimulus influences the subsequent response to another related stimulus. This effect occurs even when the subject is unaware of the influence of the primary stimulus on his or her response. Cognitive priming thus refers to the use of prior stimuli to influence subsequent information processing. Priming activities refer to a psychological ..read more

Algebra is a branch of mathematics that focuses on the study of mathematical structures and the operations that can be performed with them. In particular, algebra focuses on the use of symbols and letters to represent numbers and mathematical expressions, making it possible to work with them in a general and abstract way. In algebra, letters and symbols are used to represent variables and constants, and operations such as addition, subtraction, multiplication and division are performed with them. In this post, we are going to see some examples of algebra problems that are posed in Smartick. Ho ..read more
