About Motion Math
Motion Math creates fun learning games that let kids play with numbers. Their first product, conceived at the Stanford School of Education, leveraged the iDevice accelerometer to make fraction estimation fun and physical and won a Serious Play Gold Medal. A rigorous efficacy study (the first for an iPad educational app) found the game improved test scores 15% and attitudes towards fractions by 10% – watch this video to learn more.
Their second and third games have received rave reviews, promotion by Apple, and #5 rankings in the Education category. Motion Math is backed by a world-class group of angel investors, including Mitch Kapor, Dave McClure, and Mike Wood (the founder of LeapFrog), and the team has been featured in TechCrunch, VentureBeat, Wired, WSJ, Forbes, and the NYT.
Most importantly: kids, parents, and teachers love Motion Math products.
