I’m thrilled to share that our new ABCmouse Mastering Math app was recently named Best Educational App by the Best Mobile App Awards.
Mastering Math is an innovative, game-based adaptive early learning app that helps preschool through kindergarten children build a strong understanding of the most fundamental math concepts: number sequences, numeral recognition, and counting objects. This is a key requirement for success in kindergarten and beyond. The app uses appealing characters and personalized learning pathways to help children achieve mastery through practice. We believe that the unique combination of high-quality personalized early education with the ability to reach millions of children in need makes Mastering Math a truly noteworthy educational app.
The Mastering Math app leverages the Personalized Mastery Learning System developed by Age of Learning, Inc. This adaptive learning platform recommends and customizes learning games to deliver an individualized learning path and personalized education to every child. The app actively adapts in real time to a child’s existing knowledge, filling in gaps in understanding and teaching new material as the child demonstrates they are ready for more advanced learning activities. Using data from a child’s interaction, the system adapts the sequence of activities presented, and even adapts within each activity, to optimize each child’s learning experience and ultimately help all children achieve math mastery.
Today I’d like to share the latest parenting tips by friend and colleague, Dr. Rebecca Palacios, who is Sr. Curriculum Advisor at Age of Learning. Her article on the HuffPost highlights nine ideas that can help parents give their children security and confidence in the present and future. Each idea can be thought of as one square in the quilt.

Mastering the Alphabet is the second mobile app built on our Personalized Mastery Learning System, which creates an individualized learning path for every child. This is our first mastery app for language and literacy, and the first to offer offline access.
Mastering the Alphabet adapts which letters are presented to a child by balancing what he or she already knows and needs to learn with practice. The game further personalizes the learning experience by prioritizing the letters of the child’s name and by allowing children to decorate their letter blocks with custom art. With each demonstration of letter mastery, these letter blocks are brought to life with delightful animations that set the stage for reading success!
This new app is the seventh in our Constellation app series, following ABCmouse Mathematics and Science animations. You can learn more about the first six apps by reading this blog post on AgeofLearning.com.
