A Head Start in Math

Math Shelf is an evidence-based preK & Kindergarten tablet math program proven to increase students' achievement two years in just six months. 

More Learning

Children that play Math Shelf for 20 minutes each week learn two years of mathematics in under six months.

Proven Results

Three published studies demonstrate that Math Shelf produces large increases in math achievement for English Learners, Head Start students, and state funded preschoolers.

A Better Future

Preschool mathematics knowledge is the best predictor of academic success and lifetime earnings potential.

In a large-scale randomized trial, 500 children that played Math Shelf for 20 minutes per week learned one year more math than students that were taught a research-based mathematics curriculum.


Montessori Inspired

Math Shelf uses a Montessori approach to teach numbers, geometry, measurement, place value, arithmetic, fractions, money, telling time and more.

Engaging Math Games

With over 1,500 tablet games and activities, Math Shelf provides high interest practice that challenges and motivates children.


Individualized Learning

A placement test determines where children start, then Math Shelf's adaptive learning provides sequenced individualized instruction to meet each student's needs.

Hands-On Lessons

Math Shelf offers over 300 no prep differentiated hands-on lessons that include handouts and manipulatives.  Teacher led small group math lessons + tablet-based math instruction = more student math learning!



Act on Fall, Winter and Spring assessments embedded within Math Shelf to ensure every student is Kindergarten or 1st grade math ready. 

Educators Love Math Shelf


With Math Shelf our students have a strong knowledge of number sense, a crucial foundation to build all future math skills upon. My 4 year old daughter used Math Shelf for 7 months - always begging to play. Now she is doing double digit addition. If there was ever an early learning math program that is a must for any district to carry, it's Math Shelf.
