When Walter Schenk's daughter Alexa was struggling in math class three years ago, the Alamo high-tech consultant created a computer program to help her.

Now Schenk and his friend Graham Anderson of Walnut Creek have launched their own company to make interactive learning systems for children.
...
Schenk, 46, has worked for Oracle and as a consultant to the state on K- 12 education. He also was a member of a math task force in the San Ramon Valley Unified School District that re-wrote the district's math standards.
...
"When she was in third grade she had trouble memorizing her multiplication tables," Schenk recalled. "My wife gave me the task of helping her learn this over the summer."
Schenk admits he shuddered at the prospect of coming home after a full day of work only to have to drill his daughter on her multiplication tables --
...
When Schenk came home and asked how the program worked, his daughter said she'd done all the work with hardly any trouble at all.
"What I didn't tell her is I logged all her answers into a file," Schenk said with a chuckle. "I looked into the file and noted that she only did three lessons instead of six and had lots of errors, even though she said she did great."
Schenk, whose daughter was more than a little embarrassed by his revelation, was pleased at his own cleverness for figuring out a way to keep track of what his daughter was doing during the day and to chart her progress.
It worked so well Alexa shared the program with a friend who lived down the street. By the end of the summer their math skills had increased considerably. Alexa is now in an advanced sixth-grade math class.
"After that a light bulb kind of went on," said Schenk, who then shared his idea with his friend Anderson.
...
"We immediately correct errors, and studies show that kids learn better when you immediately show them their errors," said Schenk.
...
Even though there are a lot of learning applications on the market, Anderson and Schenk are confident their company will be successful.
