Ascend Math prepares students to pass Algebra 1 Quickly
Builds understanding by linking together Algebra concepts within and across grade levels
Ascend Math has been instrumental in helping struggling ninth graders bridge achievement gaps that have been in existence since at least third grade. I began the school year using Ascend Math for ninth grade students who were considered unprepared for Algebra I. Already 75% of the students have improved at least 3 grade levels.
- Diagnoses student skill gaps according to logical pre requisites based on your state standards.
- Prescribes individual learning paths regardless of grade level automatically. Students work only on the objectives they do not know in a sequenced order and build understanding by linking together concepts within and across grades.
- Motivates students through award-winning online instruction and explorations for over 700 objectives.
- The Result: students work at their own pace filling gaps quickly. Most educators choose to have students attend Algebra Class while using Ascend Math in a second math elective, remediation block or at home.
- Students work on objectives online in proper sequence filling gaps quickly.
- They can pause and review instruction at any time and as often as needed.
- Instruction and explorations cover conceptual as well as algorithmic approaches to the objective.
- Students employ the standards of math practice and build mathematical literacy while working on robust manipulatives.
- Following instruction and practice students demonstrate mastery on a post assessment before moving on to the next objective in their individualized study plan.
