Now being piloted by Massachusetts, HeyMath! is the #1 E-Learning program for Math in Singapore - where over half the highest performing schools use the program as an integral part of their middle & high school curriculum. Singapore has been ranked #1 for math proficiency globally in a recent study conducted by the American Institutes of Research, and consistently outperforms in TIMSS surveys.

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts (with the highest NAEP math scores in the US) recently funded a pilot study for a group of teachers in western Massachusetts to explore HeyMath! as a potential resource for MA teachers to strengthen their own mathematical content knowledge as well as to enhance classroom lessons and instruction. This pilot study group will review HeyMath! and discuss the tool's benefits and usefulness. Known for the rigorous MCAS high school exit examinations, Massachusetts continues to lead the way in adopting strong learning standards and innovative programs that help their teachers prepare students for life in the 21st century.
