Math For the Real World

WINlogo2Forget about the intricacies of advanced algebra and calculus because WIN Learning’s WIN Math concentrates on the math a student will need in life and the workplace. Aimed at 5th through 8th graders who are a year behind on math, WIN Math has interactive tools, problems and connections to real-world jobs that use math. It’s divided up into 36 units that cover 16 career-based topics.

By the Numbers

MAP_v2.0KnowRe’s math curriculum starts with an assessment of the student’s base knowledge and skills and uses that information to create a personalized learning program. With education disguised as games, interactive elements and graphics, KnowRe tests as it teaches by continually assessing student progress. The whole program is cloud-based, can run on just about any recent computer and teachers and administrators can look in on how individual students or an entire class is doing with a detailed dashboard screen.
