As we plan for a school year that will likely mean some on campus times and some off campus times, we are investing in an additional math platform. For grades 4-8, we will use a platform called MathSpace.
MathSpace is an online curriculum. It is common core aligned. It provides teaching videos and online textbooks to support student understanding when they are studying or doing homework at home.
When students solve math problems in MathSpace, they are given line by line feedback. As we solve multi-step problems, students will get immediate feedback to re-think a step. When they receive this feedback they have immediate access to their textbook, hints of similar problems, or an instructional video.
MathSpace will not replace how we teach math. We need our rich problem sets. Our valuable conversations around math. The complexities of math projects and the creativity that I Love Math draws out. MathSpace will enhance student’s practice and increase the immediate feedback for when they are practicing at home.
No matter how we are learning next year, our teachers will be the drivers and designers of your child’s math learning. MathSpace will be there to lend a helping hand through practice problems and feedback.
