What is Math4ALL?
Math4ALL is a multilingual, highly inclusive, research-based, STEM math practice website. It sets itself apart from other math applications in two ways:
1) It gives students numerical proof of their improvement in math about every minute (see below).
2) It's accessible in 24 languages‚ on its way to 95!
In addition, Math4ALL uses an exciting and highly compelling format to help students achieve fluency and proficiency in math.
The Problem We Address
Research shows that English learners (ELs), as a population, fall behind their English-speaking peers during key learning years. Research also shows that having access to learning materials in their native languages is advised. Math4ALL is designed to aid in leveling the academic playing field by helping ELs stay on pace in math from their first day of school while they learn English.
The Number of Languages Spoken in These School Districts
Math4ALL will be accessible in
the languages spoken by over 99%
of English learners
in U.S. schools.
How Does Math4ALL Give Numerical Proof of Improvement in Math About Every Minute?
This feature is at the core of Math4ALL's effectiveness, especially for students who have been falling behind their English-speaking peers year-after-year. This minute-by-minute proof of improvement offers a kind of antidote by which they can reorient how they feel about their capacities in math.
The video below explains how.
Math4ALL is Currently Accessible in These Languages
Math4ALL currently has 98 whole numbers topics appropriate for grades 1 through 5. Examples of topics are:
Addition from 0+0 up through 2+2
Combination facts (add/sub/mul/div) up through the 12s
We have over 200 additional topics covering. . .
Kindergarten-level work (number theory, etc.)
Whole numbers (beyond the "facts")
Estimation in whole numbers, fractions, decimals and percents.
We will incorporate these topics into Math4ALL as soon as possible. And we will be developing additional content over time.
