MathGlow represents a breakthrough method of helping young minds grapple with the basic principles of early math education. MathGlow is grounded in years of scientific research centered on the Embodiment Theory. A few hours with this app will shape the development of mathematical principles in your child's mind.
MathGlow is targeted at 4-8 years olds and includes two games with four modes that are adjusted developmentally for each age level:
1. Glowing Blocks – This game teaches counting and addition skills. It assists children to develop advanced learning strategies and consistently improve their performance.
2. Racing Numbers - This game improves number sense skills. Good number sense has been scientifically proven to be predictive of a child’s future math skills and standardized math tests achievements.
MathGlow helps parents to consistently track their children’s achievements by accessing the parent’s portal that displays a summary of their child’s accomplishments.
Dr. Segal, founder of iGeneration and architect of MathGlow is an educational-technology expert. She earned her PhD from Teachers College, Columbia University, New York, USA. MathGlow has been tested in schools and has demonstrated that children who use MathGlow rapidly improve their early math skills of counting, addition and number sense estimation.
*Tested in schools: MathGlow successfully tested in schools on 130 children aged 4-8 years old
*Enhanced performance: Children who used MathGlow on the iPad performed better than children who used mouse based interfaces:
*Better scores: Children consistently score a significantly higher percentage of correct answers
*Advanced Skills: Children evolve to using advanced strategies significantly more times as compared to mouse based interfaces
*Improved attention span: Children were fully engaged for the entire 50 minutes session
*Speed and accuracy: Children spent significantly less time solving the problems
*Improved Number Sense Skills: The Racing Numbers game predicts and can improve the child’s math abilities. Number sense skills are correlated with children’s future standardized test results and improved math skills.
*MathGlow research by Segal, Black and Tversky is being published in ”Theoretical foundations of student-centered learning environments.” D. Jonassen and S. Lamb (2011)

Fun and Educational
This is a great app for kids. Fun and educational. My 4 year old enjoys the glowing blocks. It is helping me teach her the concept of addition. When my son was 7, he could still play the racing numbers and find it engaging.
Helped both my kids (5 and 7) have much better sense of the numberline. I wasnt sure if theyd like it, since they are spoiled by the pure fun of angry birds, doodle jump, etc. but they like math glow because ... the characters look like their beloved Go-Gos!
Our 5 year old LOVES this app!
Our son loves this app! He has played it consistently over the last 5 months without and still is enjoying it!
