Digital Experiences

Digital Experiences

The Measure! Everything! App, available for download on the Apple App Store and available in English and Spanish, uses Augmented Reality experiences to encourage young children’s math exploration and playful learning of math-related concepts.

The adventures-based model ensures that learning happens beyond the screen, giving kids the tools to discover and explore measurement-related concepts during everyday routines—and right in their own homes, backyards, schools, and communities.

Community-Based Installations

MathTalk began creating place-based learning experiences in the Port neighborhood of Cambridge, Massachusetts in the Fall of 2016. We began this effort by engaging families and a variety of community stakeholders in a co-design process led by Angie Uyham of the Community Design Lab. This process created opportunities for community members to be shared visionaries and decision makers in how space and resources are utilized in their neighborhood. This process culminated in a Hackathon @ MIT and led to the creation of six temporary installations that were installed throughout the neighborhood.

Over the next year MathTalk led over 100 neighborhood tours as well as conducted multiple interviews and observation sessions to learn more about the effectiveness of these place-based learning experiences in promoting conversation and positive math interactions. Building from what we have learned as well as a growing body of research, we have expanded our effort to transform public spaces like parks, libraries, health clinics, bus stops, grocery stores, laundromats and more into playful resources for early math learning.

MathTrails + Hotspots

MathTrails  + Hotspots

MathTalk installations are embedded in everyday environments and spark playful opportunities for open-ended math exploration and conversation. They are designed and located in places that provide natural opportunities for children and families to engage with math content across ages and levels in ways that build kid's and adult's interest, confidence, and enthusiasm for math.

Our installations help families see and find the math all around them, both within and outside of the installations. These installations can be connected within a location and across a neighborhood or city through a MathTrail!

Sidewalk Math

Sidewalk Math

Sidewalk math is designed to engage young children in learning mathematical patterns by walking, hopping, jumping, and skipping through colorful designs on the sidewalk. Sidewalk Math has been collaboratively designed by math educators to build critical number sense skills in young children, by designers to engage children in kinesthetic learning, and by early childhood educators to ensure caregivers feel confident in practicing counting and pattern making with children.
