McGraw-Hill Launches K-6 Digital Math Curriculum
Instructional material publisher McGraw-Hill Education has introduced a new teacher-led digital math curriculum for K-6. Dubbed CINCH Mathematics, it's designed as a central online hub to help teachers "plan, teach, assess and differentiate instruction." CINCH was unveiled at the National Education Computing Conference (NECC) this week in Washington, DC.
CINCH Mathematics is designed to work with interactive whiteboards and student response systems from Promethean. As the company described it, "Students learn math concepts and acquire skills through motivating, teacher-led, interactive whiteboard classroom instruction. The student-response devices engage today's digital natives and encourage even the quietest students to participate in lessons. The program collects each student's answers so teachers can use them to individualize instruction."
