The World’s Best Math Learning Software
Already, MathCloud is producing astounding results in schools that adopt the MathCloud platform.
In one school, standardized test scores rose by 47 points.
In another, SAT scores jumped 46 points.
MathCloud is a responsive learning environment that adapts to students’ needs to promote not just understanding, but mastery. In a professional world increasingly dominated by math-based professions, MathCloud is an oasis of learning in a desert of memorization.
2012 PISA Results: The United States ranks 27th in math-based education
US fourth-graders outperformed every country but South Korea in one of the most extensive comparative studies of math and science education.
By eighth grade, US students barely performed above the international average, scoring better than only a handful of other nations.
By twelfth grade, test scores were abysmal, with US students outperforming only Cyprus and South Africa.
Why it Matters
Math has always been fundamental to a good overall education, but it’s never been more crucial than it is in the 21st century workplace.
Math, engineering and physical science majors earn an average of 19 percent more than those who study other fields.
But the shortage of qualified STEM candidates to fill those roles is well-documented.
“Science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) workers drive our nation’s innovation and competitiveness by generating new ideas, new companies and new industries. However, U.S. businesses frequently voice concerns over the supply and availability of STEM workers. Over the past 10 years, growth in STEM jobs was three times as fast as growth in non-STEM jobs. STEM workers are also less likely to experience joblessness than their non-STEM counterparts. Science, technology, engineering and mathematics workers play a key role in the sustained growth and stability of the U.S. economy, and are a critical component to helping the U.S. win the future.” Economics and Statistics Administration
How did we get here? And what can we do about it?
MathCloud uses a proprietary Neural Adaptive Learning engine that identifies gaps in students’ understanding to address them as they occur, ensuring that no one falls behind.
The MathCloud platform continually adapts to learners’ abilities and can be personalized to meet specific learning outcomes. It’s learning through understanding, not memorization.
MathCloud teaches the core concepts of math on a deeper level than traditional methods, teaching students to break problems into manageable parts to see the common principles that bind them.
That deeper understanding of core concepts creates in students the ability to reason their way through problems, rather than relying on arbitrary, memorized rules. The result is a dramatic improvement in logical thinking and problem-solving skills.
This breakthrough process, powered by MathCloud’s proprietary algorithms, apply the Neural Network Model that stems from two of the most advanced theories recognized in the field of Artificial Intelligence: Item Response Theory and Cognitive Diagnosis Theory.
Nothing else produces the results that MathCloud produces. It’s been deployed as an in-class solution, in after-school programs, as an intervention tool and in developing countries.
In every situation, MathCloud dramatically increases pass rates, test scores and most importantly, understanding.
The MathCloud team is prepared to meet with 46 schools in the US and abroad, all of which are part of the Nord Anglia Family of Schools.
