“In recent decades there has been a decline throughout the country in people having a well-versed understanding of mathematics as well as people pursuing careers that require them to use mathematics. Dr. Aditya Nagrath, Mathematician and Founder of Elephant Learning, has highlighted NCES research, which shows the reluctance in people to take up STEM careers begins at an early age. NAEP data shows that roughly 75% of high school students are not proficient at high school mathematics and NCES research reveals that as high as 69% of STEM majors change their degree plan to a field with less mathematics.  ”

“According to Dr. Aditya Dr. Nagrath, Founder of Elephant Learning, the education system in the United States is not adequately preparing children to begin learning mathematics at a young age when they enter kindergarten. This lack of preparation continues to hold children back as they progress through school, and as it has gone largely unaddressed it has created an absence of Americans going to work in the STEM field.”

“‘I haven’t been a fan of math since I was a kid,’ Miles said, ‘and so I want her to enjoy math.’

It’s a problem Dr. Aditya Nagrath has seen first-hand. He taught mathematics courses at his alma mater, the University of Denver.

‘They come into our office, we try to help them with the problems,’ said Nagrath, ‘but they don’t really understand what we’re saying.’

That’s why he and his former college math professor, Alvaro Arias, created an app called Elephant Learning.”
