CASE STUDIES

Math Matters conducted case studies with students from the Southwest Youth Family Center in Seattle, WA, where 100 students were provided scholarships by Math Matters to use Elephant Learning  app. They used it an average of 1 hour and 15 minutes for a few weeks. They advanced between 10 to 30 months of math, all showing positive results in test scores afterward. 

In 2017 Math Matters has provided scholarships to use Elephant Learning online math academy to 100 homeschooling families from Home School Legal Defense Association, which provides advocacy for homeschoolers which includes legal help, supporting homeschooling families in many different ways, making homeschooling a more attractive and accessible option for all parents. 100 families used the app for a year Students benefited so much that scholarships were extended to 100 more families in 2018. 

In 2017 Math Matters at the Westwood Chile Festival, Math Matters has given out scholarships worth in total $420,000 for the Elephant Learning Math Academy to Westwood neighborhood residents. “On average children within our system learn an average of 1.5 years of math every three months,” Dr. Nagrath, a Colorado native told 9 News, “and we are so proud to be able to partner with Math Matters and PCs For People in order to provide this unprecedented contribution to the Westwood community. True empowerment comes from overcoming the anxiety and using technology to propel our children into the future.”
