SAN DIEGO, Sept. 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- With the kids back in school, parents can turn their attention away from making sure they're wearing sunscreen and instead make sure they're learning math. But what can a mom or dad do, especially parents who are math-phobes? Parents should urge teachers to check out a brand new way to display numbers to kids, called the Math Arrow. The Math Arrow poster makes arithmetic more intuitive, especially for visual learners. The Mathematical Association of America asks: "Will the Math Arrow Replace the Number Line?"
Sproglit, a leader in educational software, brings the revolutionary Math Arrow into schools and homes with a colorful classroom poster available at Amazon.com and two iPad apps, Kyle Counts and the Kira Counting Game.
On September 17, Sproglit is also launching an Indiegogo campaign to develop more apps and to distribute the Math Arrow to needy schools.

- First-graders who play the Kyle Counts app based on the Math Arrow raise their test scores by over 7.5%-11% after less than one hour of play, according to BYU researchers.
- Students with ADHD are helped by the Kira Counting Game, says Donique Nobles, a Memphis, Tennessee principal
- The Math Arrow's unique symmetrical shape aids children who struggle with dyslexia and dyscalculia
- Cambridge University math professor Matthias Dorzzapf says the Math Arrow "makes arithmetic much easier for children in a very simple way."
Kyle Counts was the only math app recommended in an Economist magazine article on education; was named "App of the Week" by eSchoolnews; and has been praised by Teachers College, Columbia University.
The Math Arrow was developed by former White House advisor Todd Buchholz, who won Harvard's annual teaching prize in economics and served as a Fellow at Cambridge University.
"I'll never forget the day one of my daughters came home and said, 'You know, girls just aren't as good at math,'" said the father of three daughters. "So I started volunteering in classrooms and sketching out a new way to represent numbers to make them more intuitive."
To download Kyle Counts or Kira Counting Game, go to www.sproglit.com or the Apple App Store.
