More than 20 Billion Math Problems
Solved on First In Math Site!

EASTON, PA—In homes, libraries and at schools large and small, students across the nation have helped the First In Math online program achieve another amazing milestone—20 BILLION math problems solved!

FIM Landing Page - 20 Billion 

First In Math creator Robert Sun was thrilled to see the total reach 20 billion at approximately 9 PM east-coast time on November 9th—and proud to know that the digital-gaming tool he launched in 2002 is clearly popular with students and teachers now more than ever.

Nearly 47% of time spent practicing math on the First In Math site occurs voluntarily, during after-school hours, and Sun believes it is because FIM allows each child to discover his or her ideal entry point to active learning. “In preserving a child’s ability to choose and explore, First In Math is able to offer content that contains real rigor within a framework that is not intimidating. This distinguishes us from all other math programs.”

At every skill level, First In Math modules are designed to reinforce mastery of basic facts, decimals, fractions, integers, exponents, variables and order of operations. Many introduce principles of Algebra—even at the K, 1 and 2 levels. Early introduction leads to enthusiasm and, according to Sun, is what brought students across the 20 BILLION threshold. “ALL students can become their own generators of energy and have passion for learning—given the right environment.”
