“I’ve seen kids who’ve struggled for years suddenly understand how the whole number system works.”
— Michelle Martin, 4th grade teacher

Motion Math is a small, autonomous, and blazingly fast team within the Curriculum Associates parent company. We’re dedicated to making high quality, cross-platform learning games on the cutting edge of edtech: we help students embrace and master difficult concepts through the power of fun gameplay. If you’re looking for a new challenge that’s good for the soul, or are just interested in learning more, we’d love to chat.
Our Problem Space
- Integrating Learning and Gameplay: We don’t make math fun – we believe math is fun. We work hard to create engaging games that encourage kids to find delight in the challenge of learning new things.
- Changing student attitudes: We want every student to know they can be good at math and to enjoy the process of improving. Using thoughtful messaging and mindset coaching, we hope to teach every student that they have the ability to master difficult concepts. By presenting these concepts in the low-risk and fun context of our games, we help kids get excited about math.
- Cross-platform development: in order to support as many students as possible, we build all of our games for both WebGL and iOS. Many of our users play on Chromebooks with limited processing power so our games must be well optimized for those limitations. However, we also want users with more powerful devices to experience our games in the highest possible quality. We would love to serve different versions of the games to users according to their device’s capabilities, providing an acceptable experience for low-end and a captivating experience for high-end devices.
- Supporting low-bandwidth classrooms: in order to provide our learning experiences to as many students as possible, we keep our initial WebGL download sizes quite small. We can load more content later, but this limitation ensures we can support the millions of kids in the US and elsewhere with weak internet connections.
Each day provides us a new opportunity to make learning great for kids, come work with us!
