This week, we share the story of an Afficient Star who completed five grades of Afficient Math in fourteen months. We are thrilled by this third grader at Cumberland Elementary School and her achievements!

Lucy Zhang’s parents searched for an excellent online math program last year when the pandemic started. Recommended by a friend, they liked the idea of trying Afficient Math, Afficient Academy’s AI-empowered math program. After Lucy took the FREE math Diagnostic Test, her parents signed her up for Afficient Math at the beginning of April 2020. She was determined to be featured in the weekly top performers’ list, so she tried to spend a few hours every day accelerating her progress, soon realizing that it wasn’t sustainable.

So, in collaboration with her learning center director, Lucy devised a plan that kept her motivated, supported her progress, and led her on the path to reach her goals. She worked on Afficient Math 30 minutes a day, completing all her homework assignments and more. In the progress chart below, we can see that Lucy achieved five grades of Afficient Math in just 14 months.
