OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE / NOTE ISSUED

New Delhi, December 17, 2018: Maths and Science are Difficult. Often, we have witnessed the same response from students. But what is important to understand is why the kids give such response to subjects that are part of our day to day lives. Identifying the need, Eupheus Learning, a Delhi based Ed Tech company today announced its tie-up with Perfectice, a US based analytics platform to launch the ‘AVOCADO APP’, with the tag line Practice to Perfection. Currently, the App hosts Maths and Science practice questions but gradually other subjects will also be added on the platform.

AVOCADO is an App to practice the questions from your Maths and Science textbook. The App identifies the gaps and helps in understanding the intervention required from a teacher or parent. It provides active tracking of the identified areas and provides analytics on the improvement achieved over a period, thereby getting a clear picture on speed as well as accuracy.

Talking about the App, Mr. Sarvesh Shrivastava, Co-Founder and Managing Director, Eupheus Learning said, “Most kids do not relate to mathematical and science problems, as they are abstract most of the times and may not have an immediate application, hence lack motivation to learn the subjects. However, through proper practice and fun projects with real-world application we can create and even increase the interest of students in the subject. AVOCADO, is a step towards creating that environment so that kids are motivated for exploratory learning, rather than rote.”

Learning is incomplete without continuous practice and measurement. Using Avocado, students can access customized practice tests, detailed answer rationales, and review of results with just a few taps. Also, they will have access to analytics to help build winning strategy for an outcome-based learning.

Rajeev Kumar, Co-founder and CEO of Perfectice said, “Every student is unique, and their needs are different – we must use data and insight to provide personalized learning to them. With this approach students will learn and grasp the concept faster and developer the skills they need to be successful. The personalization is not only for students, but for teachers and parents too. We can equip them with the data analytics and insight so that they can make the right choice and decision for their students. AVACADO is the platform that does that for students, teachers and parents.”

Avocado is available as a free app from Google Play store as of now and can be downloaded from: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.myperfectice.avocado

The IOS version is in the making.
