Britannica Digital Learning has announced that Britannica SmartMath, its online math practice and assessment program, now provides coverage and exercises for seventh and eighth grades, extending beyond its previous reach in grades one through six.

The newest release of the product also sports a streamlined teacher's module that makes it easier to issue assignments and track student progress, according to the announcement.

Britannica SmartMath is designed to improve student math skills and test scores and to work with and supplement any mathematics curriculum. SmartMath is an engaging, formative assessment program that differentiates instruction by adjusting to every student's level. It combines questions and activities with an adaptive platform that individualizes learning. Amusing avatars and an award system create a fun, game-like environment that engages students.

The program can be used in a variety of ways: to improve student skills in conjunction with the core curriculum, in tutoring and after-school programs and by students working at home or in classroom groups.

The program is correlated to Common Core standards and helps schools achieve Annual Yearly Progress under the U.S. No Child Left behind Act by building math proficiency through practice while assessing student learning and providing evidence of improved performance.
