Learning Upgrade has released Math Upgrade Kindergarten. The 50 lessons, each with music, games and video, are sequenced to help each child make breakthroughs in math. The lessons will be made available to those schools taking advantage of Learning Upgrade’s complimentary summer school licenses, with more lessons to follow for the upcoming school year.
Math Upgrade Kindergarten has been designed to support student mastery of both state and national standard benchmarks, including every Common Core math standard. Students are guided step-by-step through each of the lessons with voice instructions, and given practice problems that include immediate verbal help and remediation when needed.
The program is designed for the way today’s young students want to learn, according to the announcement. The familiar format of music videos and interactive games with rewards is used to move students step-by-step to understand math. Students are rewarded with medals for completing each lesson and gold certificates for achieving mastery on every lesson. Students have access to the program in school or at home on a variety of devices, including laptops and tablets.
Learning Upgrade provides both whole class as well as 1-on-1 lessons. Teachers can use projectors or Smartboards for group interactive lessons, and laptops and tablets for individualized learning.
Math Upgrade Kindergarten includes detailed assessments with real time web-based reports, so that teachers and parents can see where each student is struggling and what they have mastered. The program gives the teacher enough information to enable follow-up instruction in weak areas.
