MathLearn Executive Overview Today’s mobile application ecosystem is being bombarded with radical innovations in many fields. However, not all areas have yet to benefit from the mobile technology. For example, there are few applications for learning mathematics that go beyond the traditional chalk and blackboard approaches. This is a problem. Approximately 65% of the population are visual learners, 30% are auditory learners, and 5% are kinesthetic learners. Around the globe there are special math classes and tutors for those students who find math hard and confusing. Traditional ways of teaching math do not address the visual and kinesthetic learners; they focus on the auditory and ability to memorize patterns and relationships. This…show more content…
MathLearn directly addresses these issues. MathLearn represents the accumulation of over twenty years of research and development, and the research has resulted in technology for helping students visually and intuitively understand mathematical concepts. MathLearn is not for students who are good at math, find math easy, and enjoy math. It is for all of the other students. MathLearn does not use third party libraries for its visualization and interaction. All of the MathLearn proprietary libraries have been designed with one purpose in mind – teaching math in a visual and intuitive way, to allow students to understand. MathLearn has not been designed to be a mathematical calculator, to help teach history, language, or poetry. This is the first characteristic that makes MathLearn unique. The objective for MathLearn is to provide an interactive, visually and kinesthetically engaging application for students to learn math at their own pace, either in a homeschooling environment or when seeking remedial assistance outside of class hours. There are four main subsystems that compose MathLearn: the MathLearn core technology and virtual machine, the mobile device supporting layer, the back end servers and administration systems, and the MathLearn learning applications. MathLearn’s non-profit business model will make the majority of this technology available to those who need it, regardless of the ability to pay. At the present time, the MathLearn core
