Learning.com Expands into Core Curriculum Subjects with Launch of Aha!Math

Learning.com has announced the debut of Aha!Math, an interactive supplemental math curriculum for grades K-5. Learning.com designed Aha!Math to help teachers improve students’ foundational math skills and achieve that “Aha!” moment when they grasp complex math concepts.

As educators have focused increased attention on reading and on accountability issues, they have had less time to devote to teaching math, according to the announcement. Research also shows they often feel unprepared to teach the subject. As a result, students often struggle to master fundamental math skills, as well as to develop their higher-level problem solving abilities and conceptual knowledge in math.

Aha!Math is intended to address these issues. With content that incorporates multisensory experiences and real-world challenges, Aha!Math supports teachers in helping students develop a strong understanding of mathematical concepts through problem-solving activities, like building geodesic domes using their knowledge of math facts and shapes. The research-based curriculum provides opportunities for students to hone their skills and the game-based learning encourages repeated practice while reinforcing new skills that students can leverage for success in school and in the future, the announcement states.

Aha!Math includes instructional modules, interactive lessons, teacher-led activities, educational games, and online quizzes to incorporate into their math curriculum. Onscreen digital coaches lead students through engaging activities. Teachers decide how and when to incorporate Aha!Math into their curriculum. Aha!Math also provides teachers with models for teaching challenging math concepts and helps them integrate more math instruction throughout the day.

Aha!Math is built on the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) Curriculum Focal Points and is aligned with state math standards.

 Learning.com is offering Aha!Math at an introductory price of $8 per student per year until October 31. After this date, the product will be $12 per student per year with volume discounts available.
