We help all students realise their full potential in their studies and in society
By creating interactive and engaging content on top of innovative technology
We provide the best learning experience for everyone with personalised learning
Many subjects at universities which are not mathematics degrees –biology, engineering, chemistry, economics, even nursing – require some maths education, often in the form of required maths courses to complete a degree. This has become something of a stumbling block. Many students who want to be engineers, nurses, marine biologists, can end up failing their degrees because they fail a required introductory maths course.
Bolster Academy fills this gap in a clear and functional way. A digital learning platform which uses repetitive and randomised maths questions, it allows students the ability to learn through practice. Most of our questions are open-ended, so students have to show how they got to their answer. Students are required to work through their answers and receive hints according to the information they enter.
Bolster Academy can be used just by students, for homework or practising concepts, but it can also be used as a full curriculum for teachers to follow. Teaching staff can use a predetermined curriculum provided by Bolster Academy, much like a digital, interactive textbook, or can customise the programme, changing the order, adding additional sections or emphasising others.
Unlike other EdTech companies which attempt to address the broad swathe of educational opportunities, Bolster Academy concentrates on a very specific segment of the market. However, in this focus lies our strength.
