February 01, 2016

All children can become proficient mathematical thinkers when they learn in an environment that is engaging, individualized, and responsive to their developing mathematical ideas and strategies. Yet effectively teaching math to a broad range of learners has become a problem of scale that may be solved with the addition of adaptive learning technologies to the classroom. Adaptive learning technologies extend the capacity of the teacher to individualize instruction and enhance learning. Effective technologies have a high degree of adaptation, are based on a rigorous curriculum, and empower students to be self-directed learners. They provide students with appropriate, immediate feedback and teachers with realtime, actionable data to improve classroom management and productivity. The result is an effective, engaging, and highly individualized learning environment for every student that helps teachers differentiate instruction so that all learners excel in math.
