If you don’t understand the solution and would like to know more about a certain step, all you need to do is click on it and Akriel will reveal all the operations in that particular step
If you don’t understand an operation, you just have to click on it again: Akriel will then break it down into interim steps and operations
If you click once again, you will get to the basic mathematical concepts, which are demonstrated with colourful symbols (pictograms)
The essence of the explanation system is that YOU can decide whether you need more explanation or not. It doesn’t bore you with what you already know, but when you don’t understand something, it will give you multiple in-depth explanations.
As a result, you can get personalised answers to your questions, all while analysing and understanding new information at your own pace
C,It breaks down even the most complex questions into basic mathematical concepts
the CPA (Concrete, Pictorial, Abstract) method is a highly effective approach to teaching. The method has been created by the American psychologist Jerome Bruner, who worked in the field of cognitive psychology and became known for his theory of discovery learning
In Mathematics (which is based on logic), methods activating the left hemisphere of the brain - explanation through examples (Concrete) and formulas (Abstract) - had already been present
But Bruner completed these with explanations using pictorial symbols (Pictorial). Colours and forms activate the right hemisphere of the brain.
Thereby, we can activate both hemispheres by using the CPA method, which leads to a deeper and more stable understanding of the topic!
Akriel’s unique, pictographic demonstration technique is based on the CPA method:
The deepest level of the multi-level explanation system is always the level of pictograms
On this level, transformations are demonstrated with colours and forms (pictograms)
Akriel’s mathematical engine contains more than 200 hunder symbols
The solution of each algebraic question is built up from these symbols.
So Akriel implements the CPA method perfectly, and even combines it with an interactive, multi-level explanation system. Thereby, Akriel makes it possible to acquire a deep and stable understanding.
With the help of Akriel, pupils can understand the solutions of even the most complex questions, as they get more than the deduction and the list of operations: the mathematical algorithm breaks down each operation into sub-steps and sub-operations, until it gets to the level of basic mathematical concepts, which are so simple that they can be easily demonstrated with colourful symbols, so that anyone can understand them.
D,You can review an unlimited number of questions with explanations
You might need only one questions to get a solid grasp on the topic, but you might need 10
If you would like to look into more questions and their solutions, Akriel makes it possible for you
Because Akriel generates each question and its solution with an algorithm, it can give you an unlimited number of exercises in each topic
So if you felt like it, you could even complete hundreds of exercises of any type in any topic, you would never run out of new ones!
Moreover, you can dive deep into solutions on multiple levels by clicking on each step and operation
By analysing this many questions, you can get a solid understanding of each type of exercise, so that you quickly reach a level where you can solve exercises on your own, without further help from Akriel.
This is just the best in the world !!! Thank you very much to the developers! It explains everything perfectly. — Katalin Horváth (13 years old student)
I like that it actually describes the very basic things as well. I just did revision, and there were a lot of exercises where I pressed the last more info buttons (where the explanation seemed even more detailed than what we had learnt in class), and there I could find what I did wrong. — Bianka Nagy (13 years old student)
It’s also good in Akriel that it explains each step separately, and if I click on them to shed even more light on a particular step, it helps a lot. — Blanka Nóra Kolossváry (13 years old student)
There are many aspects that I find useful, but I would definitely like to highlight two of them: 1. You can master the solution path(s) with several detailed, pictorial "explanations". 2. It gives instant feedback and you can click on Akriel's solution at any time, and "ask" what the right step is and why. — István Kisics (teacher)
Fast, convenient, you can easily understand the material. — Erik Szabó (13 years old student)
If I don’t understand something, I can see how it should be resolved. It helps you better understand the deduction of exercises. — András Attila Krattinger (24 years old student)
It helps a lot to understand the material. And once I understand, there will be no problem with it. — Milán Takács (12 years old student)
It explains everything simply. — Gábor Jakab (13 years old student)
When I don’t understand the exercise, the deduction helps a lot. — Veronika Váczi (18 years old student)
I like that it deduces the solution in detail, so it is easy to understand how to do it without a written explanation. — Nikolett Kocsis (15 years old student)
It helps with learning because if I don’t understand something, I click on the “look at the solution” button, study the explanation and then I am able to understand it. — Bálint Tóth (13 years old student)
It is much easier for me to learn the material! — Panna Pásztor (14 years old student)
The explanation is varied, illustrative and easy to understand! — Margit Boglári (teacher)
I like that I get instant feedback on my solutions, and if I don’t understand something, I can ask for help right away to understand the exercise. — Balázs Kovács (14 years old student)
I don’t like Maths, but I understood everything here because I get explainations. — Bence Szabó (13 years old student)
Very detailed, very spectacular. — Gertrúd Czagány-Mákosné Móczár (teacher)
2.You can understand each topic by practising questions
Let’s see what technologies and innovations Akriel uses to achieve this:
A,It gives you instant feedback at each step while you are solving a question
B,You can complete an unlimited number of questions in every exercise category
C,You can repeat the learning cycle until you become able to solve the questions on your own
D,Within a topic, the difficulty of questions increases in such small increments that you can get from the easiest exercises to the hardest ones with no effort.
Unlimited opportunities to practice. — Krisztina Sebestyénné Pető, teacher
Very good for practice. Every little step can be practiced very thoroughly. — Tünde Bodoni, teacher
You can move from simpler exercises to more complex ones step by step. This is very important in Mathematics because every topic builds on the previous one. — Csilla Vidáné Papp, teacher
I like that it starts with simple exercises and then keeps raising the level. — Béla Kiss, 13 years old student
It’s easier to practice when I'm able to see if what I’m doing is correct. — Gábor Kovács, 12 years old student
I like the variety of exercises, the explanations, the opportunity to practice with instant feedback - a teacher would not be able to take on such a huge amount of exercises. — Péter Maár, 16 years old student
You can practice each type of exercise well. — Nikolett Kocsis, 15 years old student
It is super easy to understand exercises and it leads us very well from basic exercises to increasingly difficult ones. — Diána Balogh, 13 years old student
I really like being able to practice the same type of exercises until it becomes a skill. — Józsefné Takács, teacher
Because of the infinite number of exercises it generates, pupils can practice as much as they want. — Ildikó Záborszkyné Kuzmann, teacher
A multitude of exercises that build on each other. — Éva Papp, teacher
It also accepts the partial result, making it easier to calculate further. — Fanni Bányai, 14 years old student
I like how it consistently builds on previous topics and breaks them down into degrees of difficulty. — Tibor Vásárhelyi, teacher
What I find appealing is that you can immediately see if your answer was right or wrong, which further motivates you to solve even more exercises. — Diána Török, parent
It’s great that pupils get feedback right away and so they also get curious about it. — Alexandra Szőllősi, parent
There are so many exercises of the same type, which gives plenty of opportunity to practice. — Margit Jakubovicsné, teacher
I love that this program is like a game. You can collect goblets and cups while it's helping you to learn math. — Nóra Kolossváry Blanka, 14 years old student
I didn't even know that Maths could be so enjoyable…. it has been a long time since I solved this many Maths exercises while being genuinely curious about the solution. — Angéla Juhász, 13 years old student
The children who "get hooked" can hardly stop! — Krisztina Sebestyénné Pető, teacher
These last 7 years I've never seen my daughter start practicing Maths on her own, and now she's dipping her toe into materials that they haven't even learnt in class. — Klaudia Véber, parent
It helps you catch up and gain confidence. — Hanga, 16 years old student
It makes learning more interesting and exciting. — Brendon Varga, 15 years old student
It sparks children’s curiosity in Maths. A competitive kid just to do more math is best as there are these goblets. With these cups to gain, a competitive kid will do more Maths just to become the best. — Olivér Szirmai, 11 years old student
It makes me feel successful and I like the sound effects. — Sára Kiss Réka, 12 years old student
I get rewarded for what I've achieved! — András Bartos, 13 years old student
It teaches in a fun and amusing way. — Dávid Paál, 11 years old student
Finally an application that makes Maths interesting and understandable even for those who are less mathematically inclined. — Klaudia Véber, parent
I enjoyed solving exercises much more on here. — Péter Takács, 13 years old student
The exercises were similar enough for me to memorise the solution, but I still had to do quite a bit of thinking to solve them so it remained interesting. (I like that it's colorful and fun.) — Dominika Haraszty, 13 years old student
I love it! — Martin Pásztor, 13 years old student
II. For teachers
Akriel will help you finally breathe again, as it takes a huge burden off your shoulders - all while your pupils can score 1,5 times higher on tests. *
How can you achieve this? Akriel will help you effectively with all the three important stages of the teaching process:
Let’s see what technologies and innovations Akriel uses to achieve this:
A,It provides personalised education, thus making the process of understanding much more efficient
B,Thanks to constant feedback on pupil’s performance, it facilitates formative assessment, thus making the process of practising more efficient
C,It supports adaptive education, so each pupil can progress independently, at their own pace, which allows teachers to provide differentiated instruction
D,The process of assessing pupils’ knowledge becomes more efficient with the study group tests
When they have to solve exercises independently, pupils have the opportunity to ask for help, on several levels. Gradually more difficult exercises, immediate feedback. Unlimited opportunities to practice. The pupils can even start a quiz on their own to test their knowledge. I can also launch group quizzes with immediate evaluation. The whole interface is very professional. — Krisztina Sebestyénné Pető, teacher
It makes us practice with many "familiar" exercises. The solution and its deduction is available at any time. Mastering the solution of Maths problems is only a matter of diligence. It provides the opportunity of independent learning for those pupils who are interested, but we can also adjust the pace and expectations for those who have fallen behind. They can also test themselves with quizzes. — Brigitta Rausch, teacher
It helps make pupils practice, each of them is given a different Maths problem. — Zoltán Lovas, teacher
It's a great help with practice, tests and differentiation. — Éva Hargitai, teacher
It helps with personalised practice, as well as with preparing and correcting exercises. — Anna Várnai, teacher
I can ensure there's no cheating during a test. The pupils cannot say they have "never seen" the types of exercises they have to solve in their homework or a quiz. — Brigitta Rausch, teacher
One can make progress at their own pace, with a personalised learning plan! — István Kisics, teacher
Ready-made exercises, a different way of planning out a class, individual pace. It's not me who has to do the differenatiation based on the pupils' abilities. — Ágnes Tóth, teacher
Independent practice, with help always at hand. Pupils can progress at their own pace, according to their own schedule. — Anikó Kamocsai, teacher
Creates individual learning paths. — Ágnes Nagy, teacher
Accustomes pupils to individual learning. — András Dézsi, teacher
The children can practice individually with a variety of exercises, adjusted to their own level. — Anikó Nagyné, teacher
Giving home-work. Making the class more colourful. — Gerla Jánossy, teacher
I really like that I can give them a test: I can set the duration, and then I can even peek into the participants' progress. — Ágnes Szabóné Hengl, teacher
There are lots of exercises and the explanations are great. Pupils teach themselves with these! — Éva Herbayné Dudás, teacher
Pupils can practice the exercises they were given. They can make progress at their own pace. They always get help. They are becoming more and more independent. — Éva Deme, teacher
Pupils can set their own pace and choose the number and difficulty of exercises they need to solve in order to master a certain topic. — Cseperke Sághi, teacher
It helps with differentiation based on abilities. Every pupils gets their own Maths problem, so they are forced to work independently. — Cseperke Sághi, teacher
The pupils can progress at their own pace, and everyone's homework gets corrected right away. — Andrea Golaritsné Fixek, teacher
It's very useful for creating study groups. Every pupil gets to practice the exercises that cause the most difficulty for them. — Józsefné Takács, teacher
It helps with the practice of monotonous exercises. With thinking over all the small steps. — Ildikó Záborszkyné Kuzmann, teacher
Pupils can see the step-by-step explanation of an equation, they don't have to wait for the teacher to explain it to them. — Anita Nagy, teacher
It helps that pupils can verify their solutions themselves when I give them homework. — Éva Tábory, teacher
2.You can track your pupils ’progress online at the group level, individual level, and exercise level as well
Let’s see what technologies and innovations Akriel uses to achieve this:
A,On the group display, you can track each pupil’s progress within specific topics and exercises
B,You can track which pupil solved which exercises, whether they solved it correctly, and where they made a mistake
C,Within any exercise, you can see a real-time report of what steps the pupils have submitted so far and what they are working on, so you can help them remotely.
D,Thanks to real-time monitoring, you can control and coordinate your study groups online just as efficiently as you do in the classroom.
I can continuously track who's working on what exercise and what causes them difficulty. — Ágnes Aranyosné Siklósi, teacher
I can monitor every single move my pupils make on the platform, and this helps with differentiated teaching. — Ilona Szabadvári, teacher
The opportunity of monitoring a pupil's progress. I like the live report very much. How and when they move the mouse is useful information as well. — Margit Jakubovicsné, teacher
It's been of great help with the sudden shift to online education. It saved our life! — Brigitta Rausch, teacher
I can see how much time pupils spend on certain exercises, what difficulties they have and how well they've mastered the topic. — Anita Nagy, teacher
The pupils work independently, yet under continuous control. Instant feedback to both the pupil and the teacher. It's possible to monitor the pupils' progress. — Krisztina Sebestyénné Pető, teacher
I can monitor how effectively the study groups solve exercises. Even during distance learning I can see what they work on and how. — Brigitta Rausch, teacher
I can see the pupils' work and pace of progress in the material. — Erika Nagyné Tótin, teacher
When they need help, I can see what they're writing, and now even in the digital system we can talk through what they don't understand. — Éva Zajáczné Rudolf, teacher
It is possible to track the number and results of the exercises a certain pupil solved. Where they made a mistake, how long it took for them to solve a each problem. — Gerla Jánossy, teacher
It has been particularly useful in digital education. It’s good to see the live report too: there have been occasions where it allowed me to help the pupils and explain them everything remotely, using the phone. — Csilla Ágoston, teacher
You can keep track of who needs help and with what exercises, and who needs some nudging. — Ágnes Szabóné Hengl, teacher
I can see on the online platform who is stuck and with what, where they need correction, help or more practicing. — Tünde Farkas - Veres, teacher
I can see how they practice. I can help each pupil by going to their page. — Zsóka Majtényi, teacher
I like that my teachers can see what I'm practicing and how they can help me. — Nóra Kolossváry Blanka, 13 years old student
3.It helps you motivate pupils and give slower learners a chance to catch up
The kids viewed it as a game, even though they have solved a huge number of exercises on Akriel during the class. They would have never solved this many with this much enthusiasm on paper. — Andrea Jakab, teacher
It continuously rewards the pupils. Those kids who "get hooked" can hardly stop. — Krisztina Sebestyénné Pető, teacher
They like classes and tests on Akriel and how they can see their own progress on the screen. They solve a lot more exercises than in writing. — Zsanett H. Kiss, teacher
It sorts the pupils' scores and results, they've started competing with each other...prestige, motivation. — Zoltánné Hajdú, teacher
Quite a few pupils are motivated by the competition. — Éva Zajáczné Rudolf, teacher
The kids have never practiced with as much enthusiasm as they do with Akriel. — Andrea Jakab, teacher
Many of them are motivated by competition: who will win the cup first. — Csilla Árvai, teacher
They like solving the exercises that are getting incrementally more difficult, especially those who experience much less success otherwise. Inhibited children can experience success on here (with starts and cups.) — Ágnes Szabóné Hengl, teacher
They are very happy to practice, they have a great time during it. I think they have found where they can practice easily in the coming years. — Józsefné Takács, teacher
Learning Maths has become a game with Akriel, just as I have always wanted. — Andrea Jakab, teacher
Rewarding with stars and cups is a great idea. Kids love to get recognized and rewarded for their work. — Józsefné Takács, teacher
Winning a cup inspires them to practice more because they get a good mark for it as well. With the help of this program I can encourage my pupils to practice more. — Csilla Vidáné Papp, teacher
It helps motivate pupils and make those who've fallen behind catch up with the others. — Anna Várnai, teacher
I have found that children are happy to practice, and instead of stopping at the end of the class they keep going. — Ilona Szabadvári, teacher
It can be used for talent management, as well as catching up. — Andrea Jakab, teacher
Kids who are much harder to motivate also enjoy using this program. — Patrícia Kovács, teacher
+1Meanwhile, the program takes some burden off your shoulders
It saves me a lot of time as I don't have to check every answer one by one. My pupils can practice routine exercises by themselves, independently. — Anikó Kamocsai, teacher
I don’t have to bother with correcting all the answers, yet I can make my pupils practice a lot. — Krisztina Kovács, teacher
It selects and creates exercises for practice and for extra points. — Ágota Kecskeméti, teacher
I don't have to create practice tests myself. — Gabriella Joó, teacher
Ready-made sets of questions which I don't have to bother compiling. — Katalin Szabó, teacher
Generates and evaluates exercise sheets. — Tünde Farkas - Veres, teacher
Fewer explanations by the teacher are needed for understanding. — Ágnes Aranyosné Siklósi, teacher
The biggest help is that I don’t have to correct huge piles of exercises. — Anna Dombi, teacher
Tests with immediate evaluation. — Csilla Vidáné Papp, teacher
It takes a lot of burden off my shoulders. — Tamás Gál, teacher
It's not me who has to do the differentiation. — Ágnes Tóth, teacher
I can also launch group tests with immediate evaluation. — Krisztina Sebestyénné Pető, teacher
Automatic correction. — Szilva, teacher
* Both results come from a case study conducted in the 2019/2020 school year, involving 3 schools and more than 100 pupils, for nearly a month. Control groups were also included in the case study.
A real game-changer in online education
Distance learning causes difficulties in quite a few processes that would otherwise go easily in the classroom. Akriel handles this situation effectively as well!
It’s a huge help in the sudden transition to digital education. It saved lives! As a teacher, it soon became clear that I could not provide quality control, guidance, catching up, and talent development without the help of Akriel. — Brigitta Rausch, teacher
During this spring’s quarantine, she and her 68 pupils and 4 study groups gained a total of more than 2,600 goblets (!), meaning that the children had taken this many lessons.
Check out this 3 minute video to see how Akriel works
You can access 140+ algebraic and arithmetical topics on Akriel from KS2 to KS4.
In the future, we’re planning to cover all key stages of algebra and arithmetics with more than 300 detailed lessons.
(You can use the program on PC, laptop, and tablet too!)
If you like what you’ve read about Akriel so far, then:

how to use Akriel effectively as a pupil
how to use Akriel effectively in your study groups as a teacher
If you have tried Akriel and are convinced of its effectiveness, join with an individual or group subscription! Akriel has a 3x3 step pricing, choose the most ideal one.
With an Akriel subscription, not only do the topics in your own year become available, but you also get full access to all the topics of all years. This way you can catch up on topics from previous years as well.
The first is when we see pupils’ eyes sparkle with the joy of understanding, the flow experience gained from a series of successfully solved questions, and the confidence they have regained. When we hear them joyfully exclaiming “Woooww I finally understand! I couldn’t get it for about 5 years!" or “Is it that easy? I always thought it was a lot more difficult!”. And when they realize that Maths is actually an easy thing to learn and love, and it’s exciting even!
And the other one is when we see pupils’ test results take a turn for the better, so they start getting better marks on a given topic than before Akriel.
With developing Akriel, our main objective was helping as many pupils as possible experience this feeling of success.
Akriel combines the most effective trends in Mathematics education (personalization, adaptation, formative assessment, CPA method, growth mindset, gamification). In addition, it has revolutionary software technologies on the Mathematics courseware market (algorithm solving algebraic problems, multi-level explanation system, pictogram illustration technology, unlimited questions generator, and exercise categories getting increasingly more difficult in each topic).
Thus, Akriel’s educational technology makes it unique in the market and it can provenly induce the above-mentioned “Akriel experience” in pupils, while significantly improving their performance on tests at both the individual and study group levels.
For all these reasons, we feel obliged to spread Akriel as widely as possible. Our vision is nothing less than bringing it to millions of pupils worldwide so that they too can partake in the “Akriel experience” and make their academic achievements soar!
