Internet access, like access to a good education, is not just a way of life, but a basic human right. This is the conclusion we have come to at the end of a two-week pilot test of Chilipopcorn, a new online Maths education programme, in partnership with Indiability Foundation and a select group of children from SKSN, a special school for children with physical disabilities, mostly due to polio.

These figures correlate with the overall mathematics performance, with China being the highest.
Mathematics performance is the single most important factor that explains the financial literacy of each country in the study.
The Chinese method of teaching maths is similar to that used here at Chilipopcorn, where the emphasis is on fully grasping mathematical concepts, number patterns and numerical skills in the early years, while the application of the concepts is developed at a later stage. ...
