"My first grade team loves Ten One Math. We work hard now on making sure our kids understand how to make 10 and to understand place value in general. This really tells exactly what you’re wanting them to understand about the numbers. They mean something."
-Kelly C, 1st Grade Teacher, JCPS Louisville KY
"It’s fun when you see the lightbulb go on and they realize that 26 means two groups of 10 and six more. And they really get it. It’s this look on their face like an explosion happened in their brain, but a good one."
-Terry P, Oakland CA
"My 4 yr. old Hailey picked it up right away. Before Ten One Math she couldn't get past teen numbers. Now she can count all the way up to 100. She tells me: Math is easy, mom."
-L. Velasquez, West Covina CA
"Jennifer (daughter) loves this way of counting! The chart really explains it. The wording actually describes the numbers. My daughter has had a difficult time with early numeracy but this is helping a lot. Eleven and twelve... we can save those for later."
-Byron K., Redondo Beach CA
"I will be teaching my G-babies the concept, and discussing with our homeschool moms."
-Martha S., South Pasadena CA
"I'm a 2nd grade math teacher and I have waited for this a long time. This is how math should be taught in every classroom. I believe it will work especially well if you start them in preschool."
-M. Stuart, Charlottesville VA
"My 6-year-old enjoys the colorful characters and math challenges. He uses Ten One Math number words and I believe it helped him learn the 'standard' number words more easily."
-G. Rowley, San Diego CA
"It worked for both kids! They really liked it! Thanks again!"
-Elizabeth B, Louisville KY
"I watched several documentaries on the comparisons of how Chinese children learn to count and US. As an educator and a parent, I'm concerned about the long term implications it has on the ability of our students to comprehend math. Thankfully you're out there creating innovative tech. Technology is the great equalizer, it opens up worlds for children."
-Danielle M W, Louisville KY
"Hi, I think you are doing an amazing job! The visual quality of what you have is up to the standards of top educational apps in the App Store. Would love to see Ten One Math developed as a native iOS app someday!"
-Marcello R, Italy
"As a speaker of both English and Chinese, I agree that the Chinese numbering system makes way more sense and is easier to learn. Even when you factor the characters in, you only need to learn to write ten characters to be able to represent 1-99, learn another 2 and you can do 0-999, another one and it's 0-9999, etc."
-Lan L, San Gabriel CA
