Mathspace is an online program that is curriculum aligned, tracks student’s progress, and offers feedback on the math problems students solve.
This year’s fourth grade will be using Mathspace to supplement Investigations curriculum by Pearson. Here a few things I love about Mathspace:
Keeping Track of Student Activity
There are multiple ways to keep track of student activity whether it is on a simple graph or individual reports. This helps me to know what the student has mastered and has not. This will also help me form small groups.
Helpful ToolsThe lightbulb icon on the right offers a hint to help solve the problem, and the textbook icon offers a quick review of the content. These tools can help students when a teacher cannot answer their questions right away and encourage them to be their own problem solvers!
Along with Mathspace, students will also get to solve problems in their Investigations workbooks, use manipulative and complete project-based assessments throughout the year. I am excited to see our mathematicians grow as we explore new ways of learning math.
Teacher, Grade 4
Chloe Jang first developed a passion for children in high school when volunteering at her church’s children’s ministry. She learned how teaching with love and patience can have an impact on both student and teacher. Since then, Ms. Jang has received a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and English Language Arts from Hunter College. In New York City, Ms. Jang experienced diverse classroom environments, especially teaching fourth grade in West Harlem. She’s very excited to be a part of the Mustard Seed team and serve the community!
In her free time, Ms. Jang loves to travel and learn about different cultures. She even lived in Japan for one year, serving students in a college ministry. She also loves to read fiction books, workout, and explore new restaurants.
