  2. 2. Achievementsto dateUsage statistics at the end Sept 2011•  4 provinces, 172 schools, appr 700 teachers, more than15 000 Grade 10 learners (potential group appr. 25 000 learners). NOTE: Free State joined in Aug- Sept and Eastern Cape widen the number of schools in May•  Half a million (491,958) attempts at maths tests and exercises•  468,496 maths tests and exercises completed by 11,062 Grade 10s (600,546 views and posts). 23,462 maths tests and exercises completed by 743 Grade 11s (who continued to use Momaths Grade 10). (we do not have yet Grade 11 content)Impact for learners•  Very positive feedback from learners and teachers•  82% of use was outside of school time•  Continued use during weekends, holidays and strike•  Continued use over one full year (often, despite non-use by teachers)•  Interest for mathemathics has raised•  Learners awarenes of own maths skills have raised•  Preliminary analysis (Feb – June 2010) shows impact on learner results – 14 % better maths results fro those who were using the service© 2011 Nokia Corporate Social Investment Company Confidential
