Jon talks with Aditya Nagrath, founder and CEO of Elephant Learning, about how simplifying learning and business makes successful students and business owners - from math in colors to business in labels. Aditya Nagrath is the founder and CEO of the world’s most effective math learning platform — Elephant Learning. Build math intuition and overcome math anxiety from preschool to middle school mathematics with a low monthly subscription fee. Elephant Learning is a story about the concerning math proficiency statistics that continue to trend down. Students begin that downward spiral as early as pre-school. Our platform equips parents and children with the tools necessary to fully understand math concepts and ultimately build confidence. I know that it is never too late to understand math. At a young age, many of us had the experience of being told that “we are just not a numbers person.” Books have been written on this social phenomenon, and half of all Americans report having math anxiety. As it turns out, mathematics is really about learning jargon, a jargon that is so fundamental to humanity that we consider it vocabulary.
Your child will learn at least 1 year of mathematics over the course of the next 3 months using our system just 10 minutes/day, 3 days per week or we will provide you a full refund.
We are not considered to be common core. Most parents find common core to be confusing and frustrating. Our system is straightforward, and our reports help you understand what your student is working on and how you can take learning outside of the system.
Because we teach mathematics as a language, we are compatible with all standards and curriculums including Common Core, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and etc... Students that come through our system are better able to understand the teacher regardless of the standard or curriculum being used.
Your student's Elephant AgeTM will go up by at least 1 year over the course of 3 months when your student uses Elephant Learning on average 30 minutes per week. Recommended usage is 10 minutes per day, 3 days per week. If it does not please contact support and we will provide you with a full refund. If at anytime within the three months, your student is struggling or requires additional help, just contact us and we will provide additional coaching.
We cover from counting through Algebra. If your student is working on any of these subjects or struggling with upper level mathematics, then our system was made to help them. We find their initial level of understanding using a Placement Exam and then begin building intuition and understanding into the topics at their level of understanding.
We have had success with students from all backgrounds because we teach mathematics as a language. Because all students learn language, all students tend to see success.
The fundamental ideas of mathematics are sort of like the colors, a student needs to exhibit the idea in order for us to label these ideas. After that, Algebra takes these ideas and adds language so that we can use these ideas to build more complex and abstract tools. When we think of mathematics as a language rather than a set of processes that answer the question "How do I do this?" then students develop understanding and intuition. All of that allows students to better understand the teacher within the classroom regardless of the curriculum or standard being used. The end result is that mathematics becomes fun for these students -- new ways to solve familiar problems.
Our only mission is to empower children with mathematics. Got a question? We LOVE mathematics and are happy to help!
