Cashtivity for Math

Stephanie from Duxbury Middle and High School with CEO Marissa

Stephanie from Duxbury Middle and High School with CEO Marissa

Today we announced Cashtivity for Math, a set of real world digital challenges for students to learn math through entrepreneurship. Teachers assign a challenge over 1-2 classes where students learn specific math concepts collaboratively with classmates while they build a business idea.  Students love it as they are finally able to create their own math learning content which is then applied into  quizzes and differentiated learning. Teachers have said they love it for making math so dynamic for the student and engaging them.

Educators, education administrators, investors, students, and industry experts were given a preview at the LearnLaunch Accelerator Demo Day and Across Boundaries EdTech Conference.

Cashtivity for Math will be released later in 2016. Stay tuned for details.
