Attracting students to mathematics and technology while also teaching useful skills is no easy feat in elementary, middle and high schools. Numbers Bee is a computer-based interactive and educational resource that not only motivates students on an individual basis to better themselves, but also offers the excitement of competition. This competition incentive and the levels of increasingly challenging material have kept students hooked on the Numbers Bee well into their middle school years, the very time where students’ engagement and motivation in school normally decline due to peer influences. It is well known that lack of arithmetic skills, especially in fractions, prevents students from pursuing careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Numbers Bee provides the necessary foundational mathematical skills and confidence for students who may choose to pursue STEM careers.
Our mission is to improve Numeracy. We have created a fun game with numbers that can be played by anyone. The game has been enjoyed by tens of thousands of students, parents and teachers for over 20 years in school districts in Delaware. In an effort to extend the reach of the game, we created an interactive Game Show App that can be played by anyone with smart phone.
Improving Numeracy for All, for Life.
Numeracy Skills Count: Improved numeracy skills lead to better paid jobs, greater well-being and a less stressful life.
Numeracy skills are not just for scientists, accountants and the tax man, many professions require at least a basic level of understanding when it comes to numeracy and mathematics. Take some time to develop your numeracy skills – it’s never too late to learn.
