Product

Motion Math's mission is to help kids find delight in intellectual challenge. Founded by engineers and educators from Stanford School of Education's Learning, Design, Technology program, Motion Math has created a suite of eight mobile learning games and an efficacy platform for the toughest elementary math concepts; the products have received rave reviews, over 3M total downloads, 6 Parents' Choice Awards, a Spark Design award, and many others. The first efficacy study for a tablet educational app examined Motion Math: Fractions; the published research found the game improved test scores 15% and attitudes towards fractions by 10%.

Why Us?

Our mission is to help kids find delight in intellectual challenge. We take the central concepts of K-6 math and turn them into the “gold standard for mobile learning games,” according to the President of Scholastic. Backed by a world-class group of investors, including Kapor Capital and NewSchools Venture Fund, and supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and Noyce Foundation, we’ve been featured in PBS’s NewsHour, Time, WSJ, Forbes, and the NYT. Founded by engineers and educators from the Stanford School of Education’s Learning, Design, Technology program, Motion Math’s suite of eight apps has received rave reviews, over 3M total downloads, and 6 Parents’ Choice Awards, among others. However, the best reward is walking into a classroom to cheers and applause from students – we’ve even signed autographs for our kid fans! Join us to enjoy the satisfaction of bringing delightful learning to children around the world.
