Additional relevant information:

Wonder-Space Mobile provides three different modalities for students to receive math instructional content (1) Academic camp sessions (2) One-on-One sessions with a live tutor and (3) Self-paced independent learning via a mobile computing device.  All students receive a mobile computing device as a learning tool to help them access mathematics content.

During the 2009 - 2010 school years more than half of the 1,800 students in our programs completed 5 or more problem sets that are included in the program. More than 70% also completed our entire coursework, demonstrating that the students were engaged in the content of our curriculum. Of the 70% that completed our program, students reported an average of a 3 level increase in motivation on a scale of 1-5 as well as improving their desire to learn math from an average score of “2” on a 1-5 Likert scale to an average of “5”. In addition to these qualitative methods of improvement (motivation and desire to learn math) our system also showed significant quantitative improvement in student math skills.  Of the students that completed the program 60% showed at least a 10% increase between their preprogram assessment and their post assessment with over 25% showing a 25% improvement from the pre to post assessments
