Samuel Mugrage started this petition to Port Townsend School District

    If you´re here it means you show interest in this cause and I thank you for that.

            Mathia has been around since 2018 and ever since then students stuck with the program have struggled. As a student, I can verify that Mathia isn´t an effective way of teaching students. We are often left confused or staring at the same problem for upwards of 10 minutes. This is because of Mathia's odd and overcomplicated problem-solving tools that are required to complete a problem and buggy software that will correct you with the same answer that you just typed. 

             And the issue isn´t just with the students. Often when requiring help, parents, teacher assistants, and even in some situations; teachers, cannot understand a set of problems or workspace. If a program is so confusing and hard to understand to the point where even the person assigning the work cannot understand it, why should the students have to do it?

              One of many solutions that could be applied to the issue is that instead of using Mathia, the school system could use a different form of learning from the Carnegie Learning program. We are aware that the school system purchased Carnegie for the next few years, but that doesn´t mean that a positive difference cannot be made. 

               Mathia clearly isn´t positively affecting students and it shows. Keep in mind, this petition is to get rid of Mathia, not Carnegie Learning. Students have described how they abhor this way of learning and so have teachers in response. And it´s always the same answers with a few altercations: ¨Its out of my hands.¨ But it's in someone's, and this message is for them.
