About

  • SkyMath is the first personalized learning hub on the iPad for families. 
  • Allows busy parents to easily turn iPad time into meaningful and motivating learning time
  • Recommends the right apps and videos for your child’s developmental needs
  • Keeps kids motivated with variety and real-world rewards
  • Tracks and reports learning across iPad games and apps

More and more, elementary-age kids are spending a lot of time on the iPad. As parents, we love that it’s a great way keep them occupied at home or in the car. But lots us would like to turn some of our kids’ iPad time into learning time, with results we can see!

That’s why we are building SkyMath. Parents get an objective report of where their kids are in math, and then watch their math confidence soar when learning new math skills.

For the first time, kids (from 5-11 years old) can get personalized recommendations for the best teaching videos and games for the next math skills they need to learn.

SkyMath is both fun and motivating, so kids can’t wait to log on. Parents get reports on what kids actually learn from time on the iPad and are prompted to celebrate and reward real gains.

If your child is bored or isn’t doing great in math at school, SkyMath can be their secret weapon for boosting their math skills and confidence at home.

SkyMath is an easy way for parents to use an iPad to help their kids soar in math at elementary school, setting them up for success in the years that follow.

But we need your help to give parents this tool for their children’s success.

Here’s how SkyMath works:

SkyMath makes learning fun for your kid.

We’re confident we’ve found a way for kids to transform their iPads into personalized tutors they’ll want to spend time with. In a summer pilot program with 20 kids from around the country, kids made, on average, three-quarters of a year’s worth of growth in just one month!

We can’t wait to bring SkyMath to kids all over the country.  We are almost there, but we need your help to take two final steps. We need $50,000 to build out a strong backend so SkyMath works for every kid, and we want to make some final design tweaks based on user feedback.

Join us and help turn iPad time into learning time for all our children (and get some great perks as well)!

Risks and challenges

As with any app development project, there’s always a risk that new software challenges or bugs will pop up and take longer than expected to fix. We’re working with an award-winning team of developers and designers who have scoped the project carefully. We’re confident our budget gives us the time and resources to take on any surprises that come our way.
