WHAT IS FIGURE?
Figure is math… for humans
With Figure, equations come to life. It stimulates right brain thinking by encouraging exploration and discovery through an intuitive, engaging, and artful interface. In this day and age, students are more excited by their technological devices than a pencil and paper – Figure brings Algebra to the forefront of technology, captivating students, reducing math anxiety, and making math FUN!
ALGEBRA IS THE #1 FAILED COURSE
DIFFICULT PROBLEMS REQUIRE INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS
By almost every measure, Algebra is the single biggest hurdle students face on their path to academic success. Figure lowers the barrier to entry into complex math by reducing math anxiety and engaging students with an artful interface and an intuitive, drag-and-drop approach to solving equations.
“I like Figure because you can do math, and there’s nobody telling you that it’s too hard.”
“I really like Figure because I can rearrange and solve for equations easily, without worrying about silly mistakes. And…it’s fun!”
“Figure is good for those who need help visualizing things and experimenting with math! It really helped me to understand what I was doing while doing it.”
“Figure is super easy to use and great for learning in class and trying to understand concepts.”
Backed by the NSF
Figure has the support of the National Science Foundation
Designed and built by two Theoretical Physicists, Figure has been supported by the National Science Foundation for four years and running. Figure’s roots are in the science of how we learn. Figure employs pedagogical methods to enhance understanding and increase memory retention. Research has shown that students respond best through active learning, so Figure encourages students to learn through exploration and discovery.
