Jacy was two years behind in mathematics and lied about her homework. Mom, Alyssa, struggled with math herself and was frustrated trying to help Jacy break down her mathematical barriers. Elephant Learning Math Academy and gamification changed everything for the family. The results below speak for themselves.
According to mom, Alyssa, “Math homework was nothing but a nightmare.” Jacy (11 years old) would frequently lie about mathematics homework or “forget” to bring it home. When she admitted to having homework, it would take her hours to complete one page. Alyssa adds, “There was even yelling and crying from both of us.” As a result, Jacy was two years behind in mathematics, even though she was advancing through school.
After trying two different after-school math clubs, flashcards, practice sheets, and correcting old assignments with Jacy, Alyssa felt burn out. Mathematics was never Alyssa’s strength, so she was terrified and frustrated trying to help her child succeed. Nothing was working. She wanted something that would spark her kid’s interest and engage her to do mathematics work without her pushing. “I decided on Elephant Learning because it was cost-effective and it had good reviews with results.”
To Alyssa’s relief, Jacy “Loves the selection of games, especially the ones with her favorite animals.” Jacy’s tears at math time stopped. Plus, Alyssa is pleased that Jacy never needs reminding to practice mathematics. The games keep her learning but provide entertainment to keep it fun. She loves how the avatars grow up as they advance and enjoy their characters. In Alyssa’s words, “They never get bored.”
Over the course of one summer vacation playing three days or more with Elephant Learning, Jacy went from two years behind in mathematics to only eight points from being at level! Alyssa is proud Jacy doesn’t hide her homework or isn’t hesitant to correct problems she got wrong. “We have a whole school year left and I am confident she will catch up,” Alyssa beams.
You may cancel at any time by logging into the website and going to Manage Account > Plans & Payments. There is a cancel button on this screen. We only ask that you complete the month that you are on.
Your student's Elephant Age will go up by 1 year over 3 months if they use the system 10 minutes per day, 3 days per week. If it does not, or if along the way you do not feel your students are making sufficient progress please contact us.
At 3 months if the goal is not achieved, we will either give you 3 months for free with additional person-to-person coaching OR a full refund.
We are not common core. We created our system independently of any other curriculum or standard as a way of "starting over" and "doing it right." Having said that, we cover the essential topics and treat mathematics as a language, so we are compatible with ALL curriculums and standards including common core.
Many parents find common core frustrating and confusing. Our system is straightforward, and our reports allow parents to understand how we intend to teach each subject. We also provide activities that parents can do with their students to take learning outside of the system.
We cover from counting through Algebra. We have seen students as young as 2 years of age achieve success. If you have an older student who is struggling with upper level mathematics, it tends to be due to a misconception that occurs in Algebra or earlier. Our system will detect gaps in understanding and fill them with activities that were proven by third-party research to teach the concepts effectively.
