Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) December 1, 2006
Citing the latest "Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study", media outlets across the country have recognized that students in the United States lag behind students from more than a dozen other countries in math and science.
While reform math is widely taught in classrooms across the country, more and more experts now support reinforcement of basic mathematical skills. Parents, too, are expressing concern over the lack of basic skills instruction by seeking outside help from tutoring centers, such as Kumon, in growing numbers. Now it is up to our nation's educators to discern the right tools to place in classrooms -- tools that will help students master the mathematical skills that will make them successful both in school and in the wider world beyond.
With math curriculum of all kinds under heavy scrutiny, a new skill-building mathematics environment has emerged that offers students a greater opportunity to succeed.
MathScore™, a patent-pending, Internet-based adaptive mathematics practice environment developed by Accurate Learning Systems Corporation, is a powerful new program that is proving to help remedial, mainstream, and high achieving students excel. Through classroom trials, MathScore, designed for grades 2 through Algebra I, has been proven to increase math proficiency at all skill levels while providing feedback to students, teachers and administrators.
"The percentage of students at Bishop who are able to illustrate proficiency in math is the highest it has been since we began measuring these statistics," said Eric Panosian, Principal of Bishop Elementary in Sunnyvale, CA where MathScore was implemented last year.
