Combine tradition and technology to make a difference

Thanks to the experience and reach of our mother company - GWO, Yellow Dot has created applications that are used by almost 70% of math teachers in Poland.

The quality of these resources has been endorsed by the results which Poland achieved in the latest PISA (Programme for International Student Assessment) report. The performance of Polish students in mathematics has improved drastically, placing Poland in the very forefront of countries with highest mathematical skills.

In 2012 assessment, Poland’s mean score was 518 points, which is statistically indistinguishable from the results of Finnish, German or Estonian students, who are the best students in mathematics in the European Union. In comparison to 2009 results, Polish students’ score improved by over 20 mean points. Such improvement has not been seen in any other European country.

A direct correlation between the increase of YD & GWO market share and the quality of mathematics education in Poland can be easily observed. As the PISA results show, with the expansion of YD & GWO presence in the Polish educational market, students’ results in mathematics started to improve significantly.
