Tabtor Math’s Point of Learning program addresses the needs of those seeking skill development and enrichment.

Tabtor Math grants both of these wishes.
Educational institutions are also getting in on the Tabtor action with the iPad-based platform helping to increase teacher efficiency, classroom productivity, reduce grading time and helps increase test scores to reduce teacher frustration and providing a sense of fulfillment, according to its developer.
According to Tabtor, the award winning Tabtor Math program currently has more than 500 active students in the US, with over 500,000 problems solved.
“Given the adoption of the new Singapore Math based Common Core State Standards (CCSS) across 45 states in the U.S from this year, the demand for a math program that develops a deeper understanding and strong foundation is at an all-time high”, according to the company CEO.
“Tabtor is all about personalization. Tabtor’s Point of Learning Analytics provides teachers with a razor sharp precision in finding where a student is struggling, and then providing a customized learning pathway for every student,” said Balraj Suneja, CTO of the company.
“The platform can be scaled to millions of students and can be extended to any subject. The platform takes away menial and administrative tasks from a teacher and enhances student engagement with the game aspects of the program, thus getting fantastic reviews from schools that have begun implementing it.”
Tabtor Math prides itself on being tailored to the needs of every student. The use of digital-paper technology allows sharing of student work, grading, video tutorials and adaptive analytics. Students enrolled in the programme across the US have shown between 20 and 35 per cent performance improvement in math in just two months, according to its maker.
