MATH 180 teachers partner with technology to help maximize teacher effectiveness. Students benefit from this partnership by receiving consistent instruction that is fully optimized and allowing them to master skills and advance at an accelerated pace.
Success in MATH 180 goes far beyond test scores. When students witness the results of their hard work, they believe in their own ability and understand that math has purpose in their future.
Instruction begins with a "Do Now" exercise to encourage thinking and make connections to prior topics.
Students break into two groups. In one group, the teacher focuses on building understanding, reasoning, and communication skills.
Students use the adaptive software for additional instruction and scaffolded practice with routine and non-routine problems.
MATH 180 focuses on the content that matters and equips older struggling students with the knowledge, reasoning, and confidence to thrive in algebra.
MATH 180 Course I focuses on key foundational concepts that enable students to make connections while learning to think algebraically.
The MATH 180 Course II curriculum transitions students to pre-algebra with an emphasis on building proportional reasoning with rates, ratios, linear relationships, and functions.
MATH 180 is a comprehensive system of instruction, assessment, and professional development designed to help older, struggling students thrive in algebra. Built with the student in mind, the learning experience is a uniquely motivating and fun way to accelerate to grade-level ability.
The Student Dashboard gives students access to their recent achievements and instructional zones, allowing them ownership over their learning experience.
Success is the greatest motivator. MATH 180 students can collect more than 80 badges tied to effort, mastery, and perseverance.
Ongoing data collection allows students to witness their progress in real time and keeps them motivated to improve.
Explore Zone anchor videos situate learning in relevant ways and interactive simulations promote critical thinking.
Direct instruction videos and adaptive practice content in the Learn Zone help promote progression and develop mastery.
In the Success Zone, students apply what they’ve learned to more difficult tasks. Items are designed around those that students will encounter on assessments, yet the experience is built like a game board – designed for fun.
Each block or unit of instruction opens with a lesson about the anchor video and how math is critical to success in a unique field.
Each lesson ends with an Exit Ticket so teachers can quickly understand which students have mastered a concept and which require more support.
Game-day lessons allow students to play engaging and challenging partner games that develop critical mathematical practice.
MATH 180 empowers teachers to deliver effective math instruction. Teachers have access to lesson planning tools, smart data, easier differentiation, and professional support resources that are comprehensive, cohesive, and convenient—everything they need to do what they do best.
The Teaching Guide provides daily step-by-step instruction to develop understanding through discussion and problem solving.
The Educator Dashboard helps build capacity of effective teachers and leaders with anytime/anywhere access to the critical student performance data.
State-of-the-art planning tools ensure teachers will spend less time planning and more time helping students get the practice they need to accelerate to mastery.
In addition, tools such as the Groupinator® and Interactive Whiteboard resources provide an easy way to differentiate and deliver instruction.
MATH 180 includes a comprehensive and robust suite of high-quality assessment tools to monitor progress, differentiate instruction, and keep students on track for success.
A Universal Screener & Growth Monitor, HMH Math Inventory® measures understanding on the Quantile® Framework for Mathematics.
Ongoing Diagnostic and Formative Assessment allows the software and teachers to adjust instruction to meet the needs of each student.
Curriculum-Embedded Assessment like mSkills assesses for mastery of key standards-aligned concepts taught during group instruction.
Performance Tasks are scaffolded throughout the program to help students gain extensive practice with application tasks.
Brain Scan assessment from Mindset Works® tracks student mindsets about math and their own abilities.
Every MATH 180 topic features professional learning from Math Solutions®, founded by Marilyn Burns. Embedded interactive tools help teachers unpack the learning progressions and practice using visual models, games, and more. There is also on-board training, implementation support, and professional coaching available to ensure maximum effectiveness.
"My students are dreaming again, and they are doing things that so many people have told them that they can't do."
