Many school systems are enhancing their educational methods in order to help students succeed. However, there is a rising problem in these classrooms, especially in reference to math. These rooms are filled with a mixture of students who vary anywhere from basic to advanced level when it comes to math. This often leads teachers having to find a middle ground. One where their methods, as well as the work they hand out, can become too difficult for those students on the lower end and not challenging enough for those on the higher end. Thankfully now, there is a solution.
Prior members of School of One, a previous educational program recognized by TIME Magazine in 2009, have come together to create a revolutionized method to math education. Their Teach to One: Math personalized classroom program opens up the doorway for students to learn in these classroom settings to fit their needs.
According to Crunchbase, each student is given a daily customary schedule that will allow them to work on the concepts with which they struggle, as well as be pushed to further their strengths. Within these daily schedules, students are able to work by themselves and in small groups. They are taught various ways to approach problems which in turn opens up a larger opportunity for more success. At the end of each math session, they are given a short assessment to track their progress.
The Teach to One: Math program, keeps teachers and parents in the loop in reference to the student’s progress. Teachers are able to track each of their students’ progress online daily, which allows them to prepare a beneficial lecture for the following day. They are given a list of their students, the concepts and skills needed to be taught, the performance levels of the students and access to suggested lectures for the next day. The program also allows parents to keep track of how their child is performing in the classroom. This program is going to be a key to success in math classrooms across the nation.
