New Review: Edmentum’s Courseware

[Source: Edmentum]

Edmentum’s Courseware for Texas Algebra I, Texas Geometry, Texas Algebra II, and Texas Math Models with Applications is an online program that supports instruction in self-paced, remediation, initial credit, and credit recovery programs. Instruction is provided online and includes some downloadable materials. Courseware also provides comprehensive instruction in each of the core subjects, as well as in other content areas (e.g., world languages, College Board approved AP courses).

Courses are made up of units that are broken into a set of short lessons. Most lessons are structured as a tutorial followed by application activities and a mastery test. The tutorial provides direct instruction and guided practice in an interactive slide show format. Application activities include a brief review of tutorial content followed by sets of practice problems with corrective feedback. Mastery tests are short, ten-question tests over lesson content. Students must pass the test with a score of 80% or better. If a student scores below 80%, they may repeat the tutorial and retake the mastery test.

Each unit ends with a Discussion, a printable “Unit Activity,” and a post-test. Discussion questions are open-ended (e.g., “Do you know any real-life applications of variables?). Students respond to the question and view their classmate’s responses using the course’s chat features. Unit Activities require students to synthesize their learning to solve multi-step, real-world problems (e.g., calculating the amount of time it will take a skydiver to reach the ground). Post-tests are made up of a variety of question types, including multiple choice, multiple response (i.e., select all that apply), sequencing, matched pairs, fill-in-the-blank, number line, and “hot spot” items, where students select the correct image on a visual element.

About Edmentum*

Edmentum’s Courseware is a standards-based online learning program grounded in a tradition of solid research, sound pedagogy, and applied innovation. Edmentum develops rigorous, relevant curriculum that challenges your students with a 21st century approach – engaging them with interactive, media-rich content.

Whether your students are falling behind, at grade level, or advanced, accommodate their unique needs in an environment in which they will thrive. Courseware can be used in a lab setting, a blended model in which online courses supplement the traditional classroom, or through a completely virtual experience.
