About Our Company Motion Math creates fun learning games that let kids play with numbers, the "gold standard for mobile learning games," according to the President of Scholastic. Our first product, conceived at the Stanford School of Education, made fraction estimation fun and physical and won a Serious Play Gold Medal. A rigorous efficacy study (the first for an iPad educational app) found the game improved test scores 15% and attitudes towards fractions by 10% – watch a two-minute TV piece at bit.ly/abcmotionmath to learn more. Our four subsequent learning games have received rave reviews, promotion by Apple, #5 rankings in the Education category, and over 2,000,000 total downloads. We’re backed by a world-class group of institutional and seed investors, including Mitch Kapor, Dave McClure, and Mike Wood (the founder of LeapFrog), and we’ve been featured in TechCrunch, VentureBeat, Wired, WSJ, Forbes, PBS's NewsHour, Time, and the NYT. Most importantly: kids, parents, and teachers love our products.
