CueThink is developing a peer-to-peer iPad application for grades 4-8 to improve students’ Math problem solving skills. Research shows that students spend a lot of time on procedural skills and not enough time on developing higher order math problem-solving skills.
CueThink leverages what students already know and do well –social media, content publishing and gaming – and brings those experiences to their math classrooms to deepen their learning. With our product, students can develop systematic problem-solving skills, share and learn from peers “just like me” and build a rich portfolio of strategies. For teachers, we are creating a marketplace of instructionally rich content aligned to the Common Core and providing analytics on student growth. We are funded by the National Science Foundation and supported by LearnLaunchX.
