Curriculum Associates Adds Interactive Math Games
Curriculum Associates is introducing new Learning Games to its i-Ready and Ready Classroom Mathematics programs. The new interactive games help students in grades K-5 practice their mathematics skills through mastering math concepts.
The company's Learning Games suite was developed out of the Curriculum Associates' 2017 acquisition of Motion Math and it provides students with access to specific games based on their grade level. The games can help students learn early number senses, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, number lines, integer and fraction estimation.
Students can choose from their game difficulty levels through the results of their most recent performance on the i-Ready Diagnostic for Mathematics. Each of the Learning Games are designed to be played for approximately 20 minutes per week.
"Educators can easily incorporate them into regular class time, rotation stations, enrichment activities, or homework to provide students with a fun way to practice skills, develop fluency, engage in productive struggle, and build visual mental models of key concepts," said Jacob Klein, director of Learning Games at Curriculum Associates.
Educators utilizing the Learning Games suite will have access to an Educator Guide, Planning Tool and a Common Core Alignments Chart. They can also get reports to monitor student activity and progress in the games.
