[prMac.com] Redwood City, California - A little more than a year back, StudyPad debuted with Splash Math Workbook for Grade 3 - the first common-core aligned, comprehensive math workbook app on the app store. 1 Million Downloads and 5 grades later, Splash Math apps are a testament to the fact that serious educational apps are here to stay.
There has been a lot of noise about educational apps that teach individual concepts through games, but from the download numbers of Splash Math apps, it's evident that parents and teachers want their kids to stay close to what is being taught in school and prescribed in the syllabus. Kids have to appear for standardized tests and Splash Math apps fit in the bill perfectly.
StudyPad has maintained a fine balance between learning and fun. Every day 1.2 Million questions are solved by Splash Math users and 80% of these users have shown improvement in accuracy by 10% or more in solving math problems. This is proof enough to claim- "StudyPad has hit the bull's eye by striking the right balance between gamification and common core."
Each of Spalsh Math workbooks (Grades 1 to 5) literally contain infinite math problems that are grouped into chapters and skills. Kids earn points when the do their math problems and using these points, they can earn fun rewards in the Prizes section.It may sound simple; but using shorter and interactive worksheets combined with great prize anticipation, the user experience compels the kids to ask for more. Even more happier are the parents and teachers; they are in love with the weekly email reports, which analyse the kids' strengths and weaknesses
It's not just at homes, Splash Math apps have also made it to the classrooms in a big way. Over 6,000 schools have included Splash Math in their pilot programs and 15,000 teachers use it daily. Over 3 million user accounts registered on Splash Math suggest that each of the apps benefit at least 3 kids. This is just the beginning; StudyPad has big plans to disrupt education in classrooms.
