It’s true, success is all about connections.
Neuroscience research shows: the highest achieving people in the world are those with the most connected brains. Struggly gives children lots of opportunities to develop brain connections with multiple forms of math.
Think of an ideal gym – but for the brain.
The best times for our brains and learning are when we are struggling. If your children are working at the edge of their understanding, find something difficult, and keep going, their brains get the best possible workout. Uffff.
What really ‘clicked’ will never ‘crack’ – not even under pressure.
Our working memory fails us in stressful exams without deep understanding of number sense. Struggly helps children develop a number sense that becomes second nature and that they can rely on at all times.
See your investment grow – instead of your problems.
Today, math anxiety begins as early as age five and often increases throughout the school years to the point where math is avoided altogether. Struggly takes a preventive approach, laying the foundation for solid math understanding (and enthusiasm) in the critical age period.
The perfect addition to any math curriculum.
For children from five to twelve years.
You can create up to five children’s accounts. Progress and badges are saved for each child individually.
Your children’s development is tracked using an algorithm and their task schedule is individually adjusted.
We provide parental support with tips and advice to guide your kids’ math learning.
Testimonials from parents and teachers:
As a homeschooling mom, I have a lot of experience weeding through different curriculums and learning programs for our kids. There are so many options out there. But this one was a really amazing find! It’s engaging, challenging, but best of all it is really fun! Seeing the accomplishment on our kids faces when they solve something they were stuck on is the best! I highly recommend it!
My students are enjoying the struggle. They are learning so much about themselves as they get frustrated figuring out the puzzles but then feel proud when they make the connections and succeed. Struggly is so good for my students!!! My student Kolton says: "Struggly makes my brain hurt sometimes, but then I feel so awesome when I figure out the problem... ()
My six-year-old son has been using Struggly for a few months now, and he loves it! Recently, I have noticed that he is able to do complex addition problems that are well beyond what I have taught him at home or what he has learned in school. I realized that he must have learned it from Struggly. I am amazed at how he is able to logically solve problems using his own approach. ()
What an amazing platform you have created! All the teachers and students I have seen engaging with Struggly have been in love with it. I’ve been delighted to see how well it reinforces growth mindset messages and teaches math in a rigorous, creative, visual and playful way!
I have been using the family subscription for the last four months to support five students with the greatest deficits. Their parents have received Growth Mindset information and learning keys from the Struggly web app. I have noticed that one of these students (8th grade) has shown steady improvement in her math scores over the time period. I just received a contact from her mother who said, "Yes, she is doing Struggly, it is helping her". This is a strong testimony to me!
We both love it! She thinks it’s fun and the parent guide is so helpful! I’ve done a few math and learning apps with her but this one is my favorite. I love how the parent guide goes in depth about what she’s doing and why it works.
When I told my students last week that Struggly helps them understand math better, they didn’t believe me. They think it’s just fun. They laugh hysterically when they discover they are encouraged to struggle and mistakes are celebrated. Finding the “hack” or Easter egg has been a huge deal for the last week or two… Thank you for all you work on this app!!! It’s turning out great! ()
I bought my nephew a Struggly subscription for his 9th birthday. I didn't have to explain anything. My nephew - even though he doesn't know any English yet - started right away and didn't want to stop.
I was surprised at how well Struggly works. My daughter (8) is rather unmotivated to spend a long time on math-related tasks and exercises. Struggly got her excited right from the start. And the best part is that she persevered and once even sat down to a task that my husband and I couldn't solve ourselves, only to proudly present us with the solution 20 minutes later. I would never have thought that was possible before.
I would enthusiastically recommend Struggly to anyone with children (or anyone at all!) My children beg to play Struggly each night (as opposed to their console video games), and then beg for "extra time" when their allotted time is up - which is easy to grant since it's a learning tool. ()
My own son just tested "high average" on his latest MAP assessment in math. That is just crazy to us considering a year ago at this time he was "far below average". His growth rate from this Fall to this Winter was in the 99th percentile. I attribute most of this to his change in attitude about math. Thank you, Struggly! ()
My son felt safe exploring mathematical concepts AND making mistakes as he went. I observed that this allowed him to have an open mind about new concepts that he would normally have wanted to quit at the first sign of difficulty or misunderstanding. ()
As a teacher, I have spent hours trying out math applications to recommend to families, and finally feel I can wholeheartedly recommend this one that was thoughtfully created by Dr. Boaler and the whole Struggly team. ()
I am really excited by what I am already seeing in my students as they begin to use Struggly. It is so different from what they are used to doing when they are "assigned math"...I love how there are no directions and they have to figure out what to do, and I watch their faces light up when they begin to explore, get stuck, and struggle. I found myself telling a student that got stuck and then thought about a strategy for "Leap Frogs" for a while, then attacked the task, "You are learning to struggle better." They really were beaming at this prospect. I have heard back from families that they are loving it. ()
I'm really happy with your Struggly app! It is EXACTLY what I've been waiting for.
