Learning Upgrade Offers New Common Core Math Course
Digital course provider Learning Upgrade has released a new course, Math Upgrade 8. The course uses videos and songs to help students in eighth grade master every Common Core math standard. The release of Math Upgrade 8 also marks the completion of Learning Upgrade’s three-year effort to offer math courses covering every Common Core standard for grades 1 through 8.
According to the company, the team at Learning Upgrade has designed every course from the ground up to address Common Core standards and the new computer-based tests that go with them. Each course covers every standard for one grade level with 60 interactive lessons. Teachers can integrate the lessons into their classes using a one-page alignment, and can track every student’s progress on every standard with a graphical student monitor.
Learning Upgrade is also offering 20 complimentary student licenses to U.S. schools with 300 or more students. Teachers can enroll students into any of the Math Upgrade and English Upgrade courses, which feature songs, video and games designed to help bring students up to proficiency. One teacher license is included for whole-class interactive musical lessons.
