Japan Math Corp. and Toppan Printing Co., Ltd. Partnership to Introduce US Market to New Adaptive Online Math Software

Chicago, Illinois--(Newsfile Corp. - April 26, 2018) - Japan Math Corp. has partnered with Toppan Printing Co., Ltd. to bring their World-Leading Math Curriculum to the online education market. Toppan Printing Co., Ltd. is producing My-Key, a new adaptive learning math platform utilizing Japan Math Corp.'s Primary Math International curriculum for elementary schools. My-Key will launch in 2019.

My-Key is a fun web-based math application that supports and supplements in-classroom instruction of Primary Math International. By using My-Key in addition to Primary Math International Lesson Books, students will develop a deeper understanding of mathematical concepts. Using My-Key, students will learn independently at their own pace working through sets of engaging problems based on targeted lessons selected by their teacher. Through problem-solving, students can earn coins and trophies to unlock levels of mastery and understanding. The program is adaptive and problems will be adjusted based on an individual student's learning and level of understanding. Students can quickly and easily keep track of their own progress through the online reporting system. Teachers can see an entire classroom's progress at a glance and discover which students are having trouble with a concept. If many students are challenged by the same concept, the teacher can spend more time during classroom instruction.
