Age of Learning Wins 3 Gold Stevie Awards for ABCmouse Mastering Math

ABCmouse_Mastering_Mathaba18_gold_winnerI’m thrilled to share that Age of Learning has today won three coveted Stevie Awards for our ABCmouse Mastering Math app: Best PreK / Early Childhood Learning Solution, Best Game-based Curriculum Solution, and Best Mathematics Instructional Solution. In January, Mastering Math was named Best Educational App in the Best Mobile App Awards.

Mastering Math is an innovative, game-based adaptive early learning app (available for Apple/iOS and Android mobile devices) that helps preschool through kindergarten children build a strong understanding of the most fundamental math concepts: number sequences, numeral recognition, and counting objects. Having that foundation 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.

The app leverages the Personalized Mastery Learning System developed by Age of Learning. 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.

Current ABCmouse members can use the Mastering Math app completely free just by logging in. If you are not yet a member, you can subscribe through this app to begin your family’s ABCmouse learning adventure.

Congratulations to everyone on the Mastering Math team at Age of Learning!
