EdGems Math includes a significant array of differentiated support materials to correspond with an integrated digital offering that has been piloted and tested over ten years.
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.
Integrated Professional Development and Support
High-quality Professional Development videos featuring Shannon McCaw link to a library of ready-to-use engagement activities for every standard, called “Teacher Gems”. These resources provide print-ready collaborated partner and group work activities for teachers to employ with their lessons.
Assessment Choices to Guide Instruction
Formative and Summative online and paper-based assessments gauge student progress at both the proficiency and tiered levels. Summative assessments include hand-written solutions.
Immediate Class Results for Online Practice
Teachers can quickly determine where students may need help with online practice results included with every lesson.
