In response to the rise in international numeric illiteracy, MathQED was developed to assist any math student, from kindergarten to college.
To properly surpass its predecessor, Phatmath, an award-winning site, MathQED focuses on two important principles. The first principle is that every student deserves a solid education in mathematics, a required subject for many careers. The second principle is that every student deserves access to affordable math tutoring and homework help.
MathQED provides student-teacher interaction via online forums, chat rooms and cooperative problem solving. Students can ask or answer questions, assist other students, and solve challenging problems. MathQED offers special interest forums for those searching for internships and job opportunities, educational grants and loans, scholarships, career coaches, certified tutors, math buddies, math coaches, role models and interesting news stories. Students will also find tips to prepare for exams, including the SAT, ACT, GRE, GMAT and LSAT exams.
But these servicers are just the beginning. MathQED’s current array of services is only a small start towards an affordable and high-quality education for all. In the future, MathQED plans to offer financial aid to qualified students and create more educational opportunities. The online service will collaborate with corporate sponsors, e-learning development and management companies, resulting in state-of-the-art programs complete with interactive tools to make math help more effective than ever. And with a MathQED Mobile App expected to be launched by mid 2017, an inexpensive and effective math-based tutoring and education are within sight.
In 2007, Dr. Iris Mack created Phatmath to help combat innumeracy. Phatmath quickly garnered its own success and achievements, including listing on Top 50 Social Sites for Educators and Academics, 25 Useful Networking Sites for Grad Students, and 25 Savvy Social Media Sites for Grad Students. To evolve Phatmath further, Dr. Mack has revamped the entire website, resulting in an improved site called MathQED.
