Happy Numbers – helps PK-5 teachers differentiate instruction and deepen students’ conceptual understanding of math. The product is driven by pedagogy, while supported by technology (and not vice versa). We teach students to think math with elements such as visual modeling, virtual manipulatives, and multiple representations of math concepts to give students the opportunity to explore the meaning behind math, creating connections and developing deep conceptual understanding. Happy Numbers is learner-led, at the same time, integrated into the classroom routines to not be disruptive. While teachers differentiate in small groups, Happy Numbers differentiates with the rest of the class and gives teachers actionable insights about student growth.
i-Ready – This is a suite of CCSS-based diagnostic and instructional tools for math and English. To begin, students take an adaptive placement test. Based on the results, i-Ready creates a personalized instructional pathway for each student. Teachers can let i-Ready function on its own, or they can customize the instructional material offered to each student.
