Help students see math in a new light!

Glow is part LED display, part etch-a-sketch, and all about making math make sense! Students turn dials and press buttons that control the lights and, in turn, illustrate operations, write math equations, and model fractions. The hands-on aspect allows students to visualize math concepts in a new, concrete way.

Glow math is part of the Owlet Math Tools collection from BirdBrain Technologies.   The Owlet Math Tools collection is the result of a 5-year design and research study supported by the National Science Foundation and enhanced by real math teachers in classrooms across the United States.

Let students explore in a safe, ad-free digital app. With Glow and Cube, engagement comes naturally – no games required. Align to learning goals while practicing math that actually looks like math.
