ATLANTA, Sept. 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Edtech startup Great Parents Academy today announces its flagship product, LoveMath(TM), an online math curriculum and game designed specifically for students in grades K-5, will be on sale at flash-sale site zulily tomorrow through Saturday for a discounted rate of $99 from its usual price of $199. LoveMath utilizes a gamified, character-led curriculum of roughly 150 lessons per grade to successfully guide elementary school students through a full year of math lessons. The product's platform consists of three key components: Learn, Engage and Motivate.
Learn engages students in lessons through a three-step process: Instruction, Practice and Quiz. By answering 75 percent of the quiz questions correctly, students receive points, which are counted toward motivational rewards within the Motivate component of the platform. The Engage portion of the platform is the company's competitive differentiator. Engage is a private social network which facilitates conversation surrounding the student's academic progress within the application among the student, parents and teachers. Motivate is the third component to the platform and features more than 150 reward options, of which the variety and timing are determined by parents. Rewards within Motivate include extra play time, monetary rewards, outings and indoor activities.
"Studies suggest that students who learn by playing games achieve greater accuracy in computations than their non-gaming peers," says Cynthia Morneweck, chief operating officer of Great Parents Academy. "We designed LoveMath around the idea that learning should be fun, and we are enthusiastic about the opportunity to partner with zulily, a family fun-inspired site, in an effort to provide LoveMath to parents and children at a discounted rate. We look forward to continue inspiring the next generation of high math achievers."
The LoveMath sale begins tomorrow, Thursday, Sept. 4 at 6 a.m. EDT and ends Sunday, Sept. 7 at 9 a.m. EDT. For more information about LoveMath and Great Parents Academy, visit www.greatparentsacademy.com.
