  • Next Generation Preschool Math is a research-based exploration into early math education and technology.
  • We are creating and testing eight iPad games and dozens of non-digital activities to teach and reinforce two math concepts - subitizing and equipartitioning.
  • Subitizing is being able to identify the number of items in a group without counting. In Birthday Café, children serve diners as platters pass by on a conveyor belt.
  • Equipartitioning, or fair sharing is dividing a whole or a collection of items equally. In Breakfast Time, children equipartition by sharing breakfast foods equally among plates.
  • Several of the games are collaborative and meant to be played in pairs. In Photo Friends, children take pictures of each other and work together to share items equally.
  • Cutting-edge technology allows teachers to monitor students’ progress through an interactive teacher’s guide.
  • In addition to the digital games, the NGPM curriculum includes dozens of non-digital activities that extend the math learning and promote collaborative play.
  • Hand-selected picture books integrate literacy and math learning while reinforcing concepts from the digital games.
  • Snack time activities infuse math into everyday routines.
  • Outdoor activities incorporate motion and physical activity into the math learning.
  • Our game designers and researchers make frequent visits to preschools to test every activity with children.
  • We work with fantastic teachers who help us understand what children need.
  • And we know we’re on the right track because we see countless moments of wonder, learning, and excitement such as these!
