The recent updates and expansion of the Math-U-See Manipulatives app earned an award for the Demme Learning team and our developers, d’Vinci Interactive. The Davey Awards honor the best in web, design, video, advertising, mobile, and social from agencies worldwide. We were recognized in the educational website category.
The Math-U-See Manipulative Tool allows students to practice mathematical concepts that are learned when working with our physical blocks and curriculum. The tool enables students from preschool through Algebra 1 to work through a full range of mathematical concepts, including numbers and counting, operations, fractions, decimals, integers, and algebraic expressions.
Why would we develop an app, you might wonder? We already have integrated manipulatives from Primer through Algebra 1, after all. But “[r]esearch shows that the more ways we can represent information, the more likely it is that students will master and retain concepts. The app provides another way to ‘see’ math, presented via a medium that kids enjoy,” said Marianne Smith, our Director of Product Development. In addition, the app provides a tidy way to take Math-U-See on the go, suiting the lives of busy homeschool families.
The app is available at the Apple, Google, and Amazon App stores. It can also be used online through any browser as part of the Demme Digital Packs, available for Math-U-See levels Primer through Algebra 1 at our online store.
