Introducing the Elevated Math app for iPad!
Innovative and interactive educational app launches in time for summer break.

JUNE 1, 2011 – Beverly Hills – For the first time, there is a math curriculum tailored to the individual needs of today’s student and designed specifically for the touch technology of iPad. Elevated Math, an educational app, with lessons covering place value, estimation, large digit addition all the way through Algebra I (two years worth of math instruction!), is now available for download through Apple’s iTunes store.

With the hands-on uniqueness of the iPad platform, students can now be more engaged than ever, learning at their own pace and moving on with no gaps. This is education with fingertip precision. And built within the attractive animation, voiceovers, and lesson landscape of the Elevated Math app is each student’s personal whiteboard for working out their own individual math problems.

Says Lewis Hall, developer of the app: “We know the US education system has been struggling, and other countries are surpassing America in math instruction. We are hoping that Elevated Math could be a solution to our national problem. Twenty experts wrote and edited the 173 lessons so as to increase test scores, bringing math learning to a higher conceptual level and preparing our kids for advanced level math classes.”

Downloading the app is free and comes with two complimentary lessons and one complimentary career video. Remaining lessons can be purchased for as little as $1.45 each. For more information, please visit www.elevatedmath.com.

There are approximately 120+ hours of instruction in the Elevated Math App with 70+ hours of quality animation, by far the largest content-based app that Apple has in its store.

Lessons are grouped into the five math standards per The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (numbers and operations, geometry, measurement, algebra, data analysis and probability). Also, top college entrance exam tutors have bundled specific lessons deemed highly relevant for raising SAT and ACT test scores.

Included in the app are a series of career-oriented live-action videos that answer the frequent question: “Why do we need to learn this stuff?” These 20 documentaries focus on individuals who are using math in their jobs and include a jazz musician, a stunt pilot, an animator, a landscape architect, a chocolatier, and fifteen others.
