Cupertino, California – Parents who want to give their children a lifelong learning advantage can now download the new math education app loopy! and lay a proper foundation for quantitative skills that will deliver rewards for the rest of their lives.
loopy! is an exploration tool that facilitates an introduction to basic math concepts. Children are asked to solve three levels of age-appropriate numerical, addition and subtraction problems using pebbles and loops. Before going on to the next challenge, children are provided with positive and encouraging feedback on their answers to help them improve.
After experiencing all three levels, children will have a solid understanding of numerals, addition and subtraction, and will be prepared for further mathematical exploration in school, and through other education experiences, classes and events.
Plus, unlike most math education apps on the market that are drilled-based, loopy! Is refreshingly conceptual and carefully designed to:
* Completely engage children in a memorable way, so that it doesn’t feel like learning to them – it feels like fun
* Enable children to “teach themselves” and learn by experimenting and exploring, as opposed to simply memorizing material
* Provide a very simple, pleasant and child-focused UI that is ideal for the mobile device medium
* Empower children to fall in love with math and learning, and lay the foundation for a lifetime of growth and development
“Many adults reflect negatively on their experience learning math,” commented Andres Rodriguez, the creator of loopy! “Our goal was to change that by giving children a completely new mathematical mindset – one that makes learning math fun and exciting! That’s why our motto is: ‘skip the drill, learn for real’. And while we don’t expect that all of the children who experience loopy! will become mathematicians like us, we do hope that they’ll have a more open and positive attitude towards math, which will help them at all levels of school, and give them opportunities and advantages that will pay off for the rest of their lives!”
loopy! is the innovative new educational math app that gives children a lifelong learning advantage in a fun and engaging way.
