Grades: Accelerated Math (K-12); MathFacts in a Flash (1-6, intervention 3-12)

Descriptions:

Accelerated Math includes content for K-8 and high school algebra 1, geometry, and algebra 2.  It is a companion product to STAR Math, which is diagnostic for the grade equivalency of students.

Per the Renaissance description, "Students are automatically placed in instructional groups based on STAR Math data, and the software automatically schedules standards coverage for the entire school year. You can provide practice assignments for each student group at the appropriate level to effectively differentiate instruction and move each student toward deep standards mastery. After completing their assignments, each student receives immediate feedback, and the data is delivered to the math teacher dashboard, so teachers can monitor progress. ... Teachers use their existing curriculum plus worked examples, sample problems, instructional videos, and math glossary terms from the software. Students receive assignments—online or on paper—tailored to the next subskills they're ready to work. Assignments are scored quickly, and teachers and students receive immediate feedback and reports to monitor progress and target instruction."

"MathFacts in a Flash measures fluency [of math facts] within 71 levels of addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, squares, fractions, decimals, and percents." It is for grades 1-6 and intervention in grades 3-12.
