"Elephant Learning's Teacher Dashboard allowed me to pinpoint exactly what I need to work on with students."
The hardest part about classroom mathematics is determining, on a conceptual level, what each student understands. This requires 1-1 work that we've automated. Our dashboard updates as each student shows proficiency.
Our system finds each student's level and builds upon that student knows using puzzles and the gamification of activities that early age education scientists know are the most effective for teaching concepts.
We let you understand exactly how each student is doing, and whether any need extra attention with a visual graph. This allows you to quickly hone in on the students that need extra help and get more usage from those that aren't using the system enough, while also ensuring that the rest of the students understand today's lecture, thereby reducing confusion and frustration around math time.
Anywhere within our teacher dashboard, you may drag students into folders, allowing you to easily build cohorts of students and focus on their individual data.
For example, take the students that are behind or near the same level and put them in a folder, so that you may manage the group separately from the rest of the class.
We provide the same teacher training that continuing education courses offer, broken down by subject and milestone and provided at the level of students in the classroom. Think of it like a reference guide for conceptual mathematics that is already opened to the page you need.
For each student within the system, you get detailed reports and history so that you may optimize 1-1 time with the student to where they may optimally grow in regards to what you wish to teach next.
Our tools are 100% flexible, allowing you to pause and assign subjects to the entire class or individual cohorts with just a few clicks.
As a teacher you also have access to all the same screens a parent would, allowing you to alter each student's settings to customize their voices, allowed daily playtime, and more!
We want to change the way the world teaches mathematics.

Math deficiencies happen across income lines. Preschool math scores predict 3rd grade reading scores better than preschool reading scores, and preschool math scores predict overall performance in fifth grade — it is not just math affected! 8th grade math scores predict high school dropout rates.
All of the high paying jobs of today and tomorrow require mathematics. Writing software is an exercise in logic and algebra, both fields of mathematics. Our society is becoming more data driven, making statistics required for many University and College students, yet only 25% of high school students are proficient at high school math!
The result is that those who are economically challenged have children that miss the opportunities that allow economic freedom.
All of this can be easily solved, which is why our mission is to empower children and society with mathematics.
Kindergarten considers counting to 10 to mean "Give me 10 items" and the student can slide over 10 items and stop on 10. Most parents consider counting to 10 saying the numbers 1 through 10. This disparity causes an understanding gap that perpetuates throughout the student's academic career. This happens completely along income lines with those most in need on average 3 years behind their funded peers!
4 out of 5 students do not understand the teacher coming into the US education system.
The above chart tracks the percentile by age of the child. There is very little upward movement except for the highest and third income quartiles. The chart indicates that the education system works, if your student can understand the teacher. The income disparity continues, and the education system does not hold young students who do not understand back causing a gap that increases over time.
If we can teach 4 and 5 year olds to understand the numbers, the education system can work for everyone! If we can get students to "catch up" from a language or conceptual perspective, then they can succeed.
