Beltyukov is thrilled to share and exchange feedback about SOLVY with professionals in the teaching field at this ideal venue for his interactive educational software. Educator Day incorporates hundreds of teachers, tech coordinators and administrators to explore dozens of leading products, now including SOLVY.com.
To say that Alexei Beltyukov is a proponent of education would be an understatement. Beltyukov values the broadening of horizons through continuing education in terms of his own entrepreneurship and is proud to see that SOLVY.com is already drawing attention of educators and EdTech experts. In fact, it was recently listed as "One of the World's Most Promising Startups" by Launchingnext.com, and was mentioned on BetaList's "100 New Startups, Today."
SOLVY.com is an online homework space for high school students. By generating homework assignments according to set parameters, SOLVY allows teachers to create and administer customized learning exercises in a timely and effective manner. Responding to the latest research, SOLVY.com has no multiple-choice questions, instead the students have to input the answer they arrive at, and show how they arrived there. SOLVY embraces the progressive thinking on growth mindset, encouraging the students to make mistakes and learn from them.
"The goal is for SOLVY.com to become a household name in math education," says Alexei Beltyukov. "We want to make it easier for teachers to understand and manage their students' progress and offer them developmental feedback when outside of the classroom."Beltyukov continues, "SOLVY can help high schools around the country gain an edge in math education by making it more accessible and increasing comprehension of the given math subject."
SOLVY uses real-world problem solving as a way to relate to math, allowing for multiple ways to approach problems and find solutions. Unlike many online textbooks, SOLVY interacts with students by using hints and feedback. In turn, teachers get performance reports, drastically cutting down on tedious homework grading.
