  • It follows the syllabus guide beautifully; very user-friendly for students. Lots of interactive sections, plus good questions for extra practice – whether assigned by me or for independent study.

  • Kognity gives students the confidence to work at their own pace: to watch the videos and the animations, then have that little ‘eureka moment’. It’s quite empowering that it allows them to work things out for themselves.
