Smartick are looking for Mumsnet users and their children to trial its online after-school maths programme for children. This product test is open to all UK MNers with at least one child between the ages of 4 and 14, that have access to an internet-enabled computer/laptop or tablet. Selected testers will receive a six-month subscription (a value of over £100) to Smartick after testing is completed and have up to 4 weeks to try and review it.

Here’s what Smartick have to say: “Smartick is an award-winning, AI-based, online maths programme designed to develop mathematical abilities in children ages 4 to 14. Smartick promotes an understanding of maths through personalised and accelerated learning by adapting to each child's level and learning pace in real time, allowing them to work according to their maths needs and capability. Each child has a unique and personalised path that constantly adjusts to help fill in gaps in knowledge.

Selected testers can register for the program through a web browser on their PC or by downloading the Smartick app available for iOS or Android tablets. Smartick recommends that children work on their daily 15-minute sessions at least 5 days per week. This is not mandatory however it is suggested to get a better scope of the program.

All testers will be required to leave feedback on a thread on Mumsnet and also fill in a short survey, everyone who does will be entered into a prize draw where 3 MNers will win a £100 voucher of their choice (from a list).

This would be amazing.
My 10 year old really struggles with Maths, she goes to Maths Catch-up & Maths club after school but as the classes are large they don't get much 1-1 time which for her, which I think is crucial as she comes home feeling even worse that she's falling behind & doesn't understand.
Being able to get something tailored to her Needs, after school in the comfort of the home sounds perfect to give a Non stressful environment to learn at her own Pace!

Definately be interested in trying this, the age range is quite large so would be interesting to see how well it works for 14 year olds.

Great opportunity, this is actually on my hit list of things to try with my Home Educated son. I just can't take the incessant moaning involved in doing Kumon anymore......

Applied, I have 3 children in this age bracket, it would be interesting to see how it engages and tailors to their abilities.

@Elliemumsnet

Can you tell us whether the company are interested in testers in Scotland? Honestly I sign up for so many tests and get nowhere. I suspect that there is a hidden England (+Wales?) criteria. It would be good to know upfront so as not to waste time filling these forms in.

Done, I've got a son and daughter in this range who've recently started taking more of an interest in maths and I'd like to see if this helped encourage that.
