A Fresh Approach to Middle School Math

EdGems Math advances middle school students’ conceptual understanding, procedural fluency, and applications of standards-based mathematical concepts — gradually and with purpose — through standards-based target statements, balanced warm-ups, exploration, in-class activities, interactive quizzes, differentiated practice problem sets, and culminating tasks which ask students to:

  • Solve problems in mathematical and real-world contexts;

  • Construct arguments using precise language; and

  • Apply concepts and skills to new situations.
