“Make mistakes fearlessly.

Mathematics is beautiful, but so many students get anxious about getting the answers wrong, that that they never fully uncover its beauty.

Mathspace encourages students to see mistakes as an opportunity for growth and deeper understanding. By giving students step-by-step support, and by helping them at the moment of misconception, students feel safe to make mistakes, learn from them and ultimately develop a growth mindset."

Program Impact

We believe every student can excel in mathematics, with the right help at the right time. Mathspace does this by giving each and every student their own personalized learning path.

Using rich, quality and engaging content, and intuitive adaptive learning smarts Mathspace supports all students in the development of conceptual understandings, procedural fluency and problem solving skills.  By giving students step-by-step feedback tailored to their unique solution path, we give them the resources they need to grow in their mathematical understanding.

Impact for students:

  • Mathspace places the focus back on learning for engagement, for meaning and for personal growth. To take a student at whatever level they are at, and provide them with all the resources they need to grow in their mathematical understanding to reach their greatest potential.
  • Mathspace uses rich, quality and engaging content, and intuitive adaptive learning smarts in order to provide students with the mathematics skills that they need in order to achieve their full potential.
  • Mathspace allows students to gain the mathematics proficiency they  need in order to engage with problem-based interdisciplinary learning activities, such as those tasks associated with Mathspace STEM stories and Investigations activities; while supporting student participation in all school STEM related initiatives

Impact for teachers:

  • By capturing every step of student work, automatically scoring it and then by providing data to teachers in real-time actionable reports Mathspace allows teachers to focus their time on differentiating instruction to meet the needs of each learner.
  • After pinpointing the exact area of student misconception, Mathspace provides teachers with pedagogical support to provide the necessary remediation in addition to supplying the resources to use while conferencing with the student.
  • Mathspace also helps teachers by keeping parents informed about student progress via weekly communications.
