Learning Upgrade Releases Sixth-Grade Math Course Built for Common Core
Learning Upgrade has introduced its Math Upgrade 6, a course designed to support student mastery of all sixth-grade Common Core standards for math. The course guides students through 60 step-by-step lessons, each of which provides practice problems accompanied by immediate intervention and remediation with multimedia supports. Students can repeat lessons until they master them, and they earn a gold certificate when they are proficient on every Common Core standard.
The Math Upgrade series of courses, designed by educators, covers each standard benchmark in first through eighth grades. The courses feature practice problems in the style of the new digital tests from PARCC and Smarter Balanced: multi-step word problems, drag-and-drop answers and interactive graphs. Teachers can use the courses individually or as whole-class lessons with projectors or interactive whiteboards.
Learning Upgrade also allows teachers to incorporate popular music, video and interaction into their math lessons.
