The MathReady apps comprise a complete curriculum for grades K – 3. These apps offer more than just practice and are not a game. They offer instruction, as well as practice, which allow the learner to master the prerequisite skills needed to meet the standards set by the Common Core National Standards.
Program interface is simple and intuitive, designed to be user-friendly, allowing students to proceed without adult assistance. An animated rabbit, or teacher, depending on the grade level of the App, provides verbal instruction and immediate feedback to the student-user. This instruction increases the learner’s ability to listen as well as to understand some of the key steps needed to master mathematics at their grade level.
This is one of twelve Apps in the MathReady Program. The MathReady Program of twelve Apps is a sequential supplemental K-3 math curriculum series. Our Apps are the building blocks for the new Common Core National Standards.
The author and creator, Dr. Gary Bitter, Professor of Educational Technology at Arizona State University is one of the most prominent educational technology experts in the field of student learning today. His many years of ground-breaking research and development of digital curriculum is transforming learning environments through portable training tools like MathReady, that can be used any where, any time.
MathReady, can also be used to reinforce classroom activities particularly as part of the Common Core National Standards. Teachers know that the readiness experience for mathematics is accomplished through children using materials and planned activities. Dr. Bitter says that besides practicing the major goals of readiness of mathematics, the student is learning to listen and respond to what is heard. The kindergarten Apps are the first step towards the ultimate goal of total user-friendly education at an early age. They actually prepare the student for a life time of learning the major skills in grade-level mathematics.
MathReady provides three Apps per grade with three to four lessons per App. Below are the standards that are included in each App for this grade level. For more information contact TeacherPower at firstname.lastname@example.org.
