Company Summary

Research shows that students do not spend enough time on building systematic math problem-solving skills. Our product uses content creation, social and gaming models to help students develop, share and improve their math strategies and enables teachers to improve their own instruction. Our flexible platform can also be extended to physics, chemistry and engineering. We use a SaaS model to sell subscription to individual schools and districts.
