It's an everybody wins kind of program- not only is it fun and addictive for all ages, it's super efficient in increasing individual math skills without wasted time. I know of no other math skills program that has such concentrated effectiveness across the board. Every school should have it for their students.
Technology can be so complicated, but the refreshing thing about Math4ALL is how simple it is. Easy to use, easy to learn. Children everywhere can only benefit from the dissemination of this program to anyone who has access to a computer.
The internet provides a way to bring educational opportunities to countless children around the globe, whose opportunities would otherwise be compromised. Quoria Foundation has an outstanding tool in Math4All that stimulates learning, benefits students, and as a result blesses our world. The organization is in good hands, and deserves everyone's support.
I am on the board of Quoria. The key reason I joined the board is to support such a worthwhile endeavor. I believe math is a fundamental skill that all children must have to be successful. Math4All's objective to help English language learners gain these important fundamentals will provide many children a core capability that will benefit them all their lives.
Christopher Wright, founder of Quoria Foundation, has been a member of Thrive Alliance, a robust, trusted network of nonprofits, business, government agencies, elected officials and community leaders in San Mateo County since 2011. He is a visionary leader and social entrepreneur who has devoted years building this innovative nonprofit organization. I'm impressed with Christopher's openness and courage to continuously refine and adapt his organization's programs while staying true to its mission so it can best serve kids. I'm excited to see how Quoria Foundation flourishes under Christopher's leadership.
I applaud Math4All’s goal to help English learners gain math skills through innovative, imaginative materials. This is an exciting, refreshing approach to the subject. ES
CONFESSION: I’ve played Math4All’s first iteration, 'The Quarter Mile' by Barnum Software, ahem, extensively. (Okay, I was addicted.) It’s fun and exciting, painless even. And … I’ve watched children at below basic levels of math line up to play. Now that this fun way to excel at math is going to be available to English Learners in their own languages, well, I just felt the whole world smile a little brighter. Math4All is living, breathing proof of the old adage, 'What blesses one, blesses all.'
I’ve known Christopher Wright, founder of the Quoria Foundation, for a long time. I’ve watched him develop and refine the Math4All platform patiently and meticulously. He has left no stone unturned. It’s no wonder that Math4All’s Quoria Foundation has the Board of Directors and Advisory Council that it has!
I'm a witness that Math4All is a PROVEN educative solution built on the unwavering principle of universal love, the manifestation of which is the deep desire to understand and meet the needs of English Learners. Math4All is a pure, simple and enduring concept based on how students learn best and, specifically, how English Learners learn best (and it isn't total immersion!).The convergence of the expertise, experience, creativity, generosity, playfulness, thoroughness and curiosity of all of Math4All’s co-actors is the consummate example of sound social entrepreneurship and edu-innovation.
We are fascinated by the potential that Math4ALL has to drastically reduce a major challenge in elementary education today --- the difficulty in teaching math concepts to younger students who are simultaneously learning English as a second language. It has the potential to provide a wonderful tool to help educators ease the learning process and reduce the unacceptably high drop out rate for these ESL students.
I've been following the evolution of Quoria's Math4ALL program for the past 8 or 9 years and, from the get-go, I have been very impressed. I'm not familiar with any another education program that so easily adapts (that's right, IT adapts, it doesn't require the CHILD to adapt to IT) to the individual needs of the user, regardless of age, proficiency or even language. Honestly, I wish I had a program like this to work with when I was a kid. Maybe then I wouldn't have hated math so much... or at all!
