Odyssey Math Helps Build Foundation Skills For Struggling Students
Research from the National Mathematics Advisory Panel indicates that students must master essential components within the elementary mathematics curriculum in order to succeed in algebra. Odyssey Math 5-6 works within the Response to Intervention (RtI) process by supporting students at all levels. Odyssey helps educators identify students who are struggling with academic concepts and delivers personalized support for each one. The electronic diagnostic assessment in Odyssey targets the skills that each student lacks, and the management system then creates an individualized learning path for that student.
Odyssey High School Gives Students Flexible Credit and Grade Recovery Options
Each year, 1.23 million students drop out of school. Odyssey High School was designed to help districts improve graduation rates by supporting secondary mainstream, credit-recovery, and intervention students with engaging instructional activities and flexible online study. Odyssey High School's rigorous content includes personalized learning paths, dynamic visuals, targeted scripts, master instructors and an entertaining cast of characters that keep students motivated. This ensures a level of student engagement that is unprecedented in any other high school software.
