PHILADELPHIA, PA, March 19, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ -- PledgeCents, Inc., the fundraising site which helps to bring resources and opportunities to classrooms across the country by alleviating funding needs, is growing the number of partners in the PledgeCents Marketplace offering math products. Today, PledgeCents is excited to announce the newest partner Zap Zap Math, the company behind the math ecosystem of more than 150 fun-filled games for K-6 teachers and parents to engage their students and monitor progress effectively. Teachers will now be able to fund a premium classroom subscription using PledgeCents.
"Gamification is becoming more common within learning applications because of its effectiveness in keeping children engaged and associating fun with learning," said Andyshea Saberioon, CEO and co-founder of PledgeCents. "Kids so often don't see math as fun, which is what makes Zap Zap Math both a great and important tool. With more than 150 games and an affordable price point, it's a no-brainer for teachers looking to engage their students both in and out of the classroom all year long! We are excited to help Zap Zap Math spread the word and enable more students to benefit from their great solution."
Through the partnership, teachers and schools will be able to utilize PledgeCents to seamlessly generate a fundraising page to cover the cost of Zap Zap Math premium subscription. The PledgeCents team works with each fundraiser to help raise the necessary funds and will purchase the plan immediately after the fundraiser ends and connect the teacher to a member of Zap Zap Math's team to expedite the process. Anyone interested can visit https://www.pledgecents.com/signup/event/zapzap-math to create their own page today.
Zap Zap Math CEO and Co-Founder John Ng said, "Being a former math teacher in Singapore, I could see how students struggled with worksheets that were basically one dimensional. We were much taken aback after being recognized among the best thinking-based products in the Academics' Choice Awards, which brought us to the next big phase of our Pilot Classroom Program. In this program, teachers and educators can help to reinforce math concepts and teaching methods between teachers and their students within the classroom environment by combining playtime and mathematics. We not only impart fun with community-based learning, but also ensure that our application is distinctly accessible across devices. An edtech application such as Zap Zap Math would inevitably further position students in math education and concurrently create a better learning environment in schools in no time."
Zap Zap Math, started in 2014, is a gamified math ecosystem designed to engage kids from Kindergarten to 6th grade in learning math. It offers a series of 150 fun-filled games aligned to 180 subtopics of the Common Core State Standards available as a mobile app through both Apple App Store and Google Play Store. With an annual subscription, teachers can incorporate the games into their lesson plans and receive live updates on their students' learning and progress through measurable real-time results via the Web Dashboard.
