(1) Helping kids learn, especially the kids that hate or don’t get math. We use our proven methods and find kids saying "I can do this because it makes sense."
(2) Finding better ways to instruct kids who are struggling. We teach math using proven techniques that many teachers can't, either because they don't understand how kids learn, or because of outdated traditions.
(3) Combining science-based instruction methods into powerful systems. We don’t force kids to repeat what they’re taught in classrooms in repetitive drills, but allow kids to learn using our apps --instead of listening to their teacher try to explain it for the hundredth time.
What do you do?
We alleviate anxiety for parents, teachers and students when faced with barriers to learning (and teaching) math. Our apps leverage multiple techniques for increasing not only understanding of math, but training your kids’ overall cognitive functions in recognizing patterns, number relationships, and equalities. Kids learn to think, not just memorize.
How are you different? We believe that with a powerful blend of science, knowing how kids think and learn and what motivates them --we can create products that make learning easy and accessible to all.
Why should I care?
Because you have been searching through the Apple Store after trying a whole bunch of things to help your kids and haven't found anything that works.
