With games that students will love, and the insight that educators need, JumpStart Academy provides the learning edge to keep students interested, motivated and challenged to tackle new concepts precisely when they are ready to learn them."
One of the key problems facing U.S. students is that they are not learning the foundational math skills that they need during their elementary school years, negatively impacting their study of STEM subjects and future career options. To close those foundational gaps, JumpStart Academy Math, a collaborative K-5 math program, is now available online across all platforms, including mobile devices, tablets, laptops and desktop computers. It is the perfect supplemental tool that schools all over the world can use to provide a learning edge for mathematics. Teachers can simply login and easily use JumpStart Academy Math on any computer, projector or tablet to access content that is delivered through CuDOS, the JumpStart school curriculum delivery service.
Already in use in thousands of schools across the U.S. and various countries internationally, it is transforming the teaching of mathematics by improving content and pedagogical knowledge of the subject for teachers, while offering personalized coaching in the classroom. The International Journal for Innovation and Education Research has verified that JumpStart Academy Math students have 18% higher SBAC (Smarter Balanced Scale Scores). The combination of team-based games along with the capability to provide an adaptive individual learning experience increases student math achievement, attitude and motivation. Kids love the content and intense engagement leads to higher achievement. Teachers appreciate the one-of-a-kind teacher portal for full transparency of their classroom with results that they are happy to share.
