LocoMotive Labs develops award-winning game-based learning applications for struggling learners, including those with special learning needs. The team is developing Todo Math, a tablet-native, personalized math learning service for children to practice early elementary math at home and at school.
In the US, 40% of all school children start kindergarten behind grade-level expectation in mathematics. The gap is just widen in the school system - 58% of US children fail to meet math proficiency at 4th grade. Learning math requires many hours of repetitive practice. There are few options to master early elementary math other than spending long hours of paper-based math practice. Traditional paper math services (e.g., Kumon) require heavy adult involvement to encourage children’s practice or to assess children's progress. This setup often fails to reduce child’s frustration and math anxiety.
Todo Math is
- A comprehensive, game-based math learning service that covers the entire Common Core Standards for Pre-K to second grade.
- Children play progressive mini games matched to a child’s level.
- Parents receive activity reports via mobile messenger and email, as well as printable activities and long-term assessment reports.
- Award-winning and research-based game design will especially help children who have learning difficulties, such as lack of early numeral concept, short-term memory issues, attention difficulty, and cognitive or behavioral problems.
