Learning in Context: Science Journal is a science experiment and observation tool that makes the process of data collection, supposition and reflection both intuitive and convenient. It allows for systematic observation and measurement in most any setting: helping observers capture and organize data on their laptop or mobile device in real time.
With a background as classroom practitioners and technology analysts, we have the blended expertise necessary to define, design, and engineer innovative apps that improve the process and practice of teaching and learning.
Here are a few examples from our portfolio of apps we've designed and engineered for clients on a variety of platforms.
Teachers face big expectations around improving student reading skills. All things considered—hectic schedules, testing, diversity of skill levels, and variations in student motivation—the days don’t seem long enough to deliver the detailed feedback and coaching each child needs.

Students use Pattern Shapes to explore geometry and fractions, creating their own designs, or filling in outlines. As they work with the shapes students explore geometric relationships, think about angles, investigate symmetry, and compose and decompose larger shapes. Many of these explorations lead naturally to thinking about fractions as parts of a whole.Read more about Pattern Shapes, by the Math Learning Center
Number Frames help students structure numbers to five, ten, twenty, and one hundred. Students use the frames to count, represent, compare, and compute with numbers in a particular range. The frames help students see quantities as equal groups of other quantities and in relation to benchmark quantities.
Math Vocabulary Cards help students deepen their conceptual understanding of key terms in mathematics. Each card features three sections: a math term, a representative example or model, and a concise definition. Each section can be hidden or revealed providing multiple options for practice.
Number Line helps students visualize number sequences and model strategies for addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. It can be used to represent sequences of numbers, including whole numbers and multiples of a variety of numbers.Read more about Number Line, by The Math Learning Center
The Number Pieces Basic app helps students develop a deeper understanding of place value while building tehir computational skills with multi-digit numbers. Students can use the number pieces to represent mulit-digit numbers, count, regroup, add and subtract.
Number Pieces Basic is a simplified version of Number Pieces for use with primary grade students. (The more advanced version has additional features for representing multiplication and division concepts). Read more about Number Pieces Basic, by The Math Learning Center

The Geoboard is a tool for exploring a variety of mathematical topics introduced in the elementary and middle grades. Learners stretch bands around pegs to form line segments and polygons and make discoveries about perimeter, area, angles, congruence, fractions, and more.Read more about Geoboard, by The Math Learning Center
The Number Rack facilitates the natural development of children’s number sense. Rows of moveable, colored beads encourage learners to think in groups of fives and tens, helping them to explore and discover a variety of addition and subtraction strategies.Read more about Number Rack, by The Math Learning Center
