Curriki and AT&T Offer Interactive Geometry Assessments

By Kim Jones, CEO, Curriki

 Part 3: Geometry

Students learn better if they get instant feedback, especially when they’re striving to understand complicated mathematical concepts. That’s why Curriki, with AT&T, has developed tools educators can use to create interactive math assessments that help students catch their mistakes right away so they can get right to work on improving them.

In September and October, we discussed Pre-Algebra and Algebra 1 assessments in this blog. Today we will focus on how these new tools help students learn Geometry.

Geometry Collection

The interactive Geometry Collection comprises five units that teach the main concepts of Geometry:

How it’s Different Than the Tools You’re Using Now

The key advantage is simple: Curriki’s high-quality digital content gives students instant feedback.

Students take interactive quizzes that are scored in real time, a level of engagement not available with traditional assessments that they submit to the teacher to be graded later. Students can immediately see where they are, where they are going, and how to get there. Thus, students will gain self-knowledge about their understanding of a topic or how deeply they have mastered a skill.

Curriki and AT and T Team Offer Interactive Algebra 1 Assessments

By Kim Jones, CEO, Curriki

As we shared last month, Curriki has teamed up with AT&T to develop tools educators can use to create interactive math assessments that give students instant feedback. We are doing this because we believes that new content resources and technology promote student achievement while giving students truly engaging learning experiences.

We think this will help students learn because they catch their mistakes and weaknesses right away and can get to work on improving them.

Last month we focused on what would be covered in the Pre-Algebra collection and assessment. This month we take a look at Algebra 1. 

Algebra 1 Collection

The Algebra 1 Collection focuses on:

  • Relationships Between Quantities and Reasoning with Equations, which includes reasoning quantitatively and using units to solve problems, interpreting the structure of expressions, create equations that describe numbers or relationships, and solving equations.
  • Linear and Exponential Relationships, which includes extending the properties of exponents to rational exponents, solving systems of equations, solving equations and inequalities graphically, understanding the concept of a function (including interpreting, analyzing and building), and constructing and comparing linear, quadratic, and exponential models to solve problems.
  • Expressions and Equations, which includes interpreting the structure of expressions and writing them in equivalent forms to solve problems, performing arithmetic operations on polynomials, creating equations that describe numbers or relationships, and solving equations and inequalities in one variable and in systems.
  • Quadratic Functions and Modeling, which includes using properties of rational and irrational numbers, interpreting functions that arise in applications, analyzing functions using different representations, building a function that models a relationship between two quantities, building new functions from existing functions, and constructing and comparing linear, quadratic, and exponential models.

AT&T is providing high-quality digital content for teaching and learning that provides the ability to give students what they often don’t get in school: instant feedback. Interactive quizzes scored in real time give students a level of engagement not available with traditional assessments submitted to the teacher to be graded later — students can immediately see where they are, where they are going, and how to get there. Students will gain self-knowledge about their understanding of a topic or how deeply they have mastered a skill.

Assessments are provided to 8th-12th grade students in three collections:

This month we’ll talk in detail about the Pre-Algebra Collection, and cover the other two in upcoming months.

Pre-Algebra Collection

The Pre-Algebra Collection focuses on the Number System, including a full understanding of rational and irrational numbers.

The section on Expressions and Equations helps students learn about  the connections between proportional relationships, lines, and linear equations, and covers integer exponents, square root and cube root systems, estimating very large or small quantities, slope, real-world problem solving and more.

Functions helps students define, evaluate, and compare functions and use them to model relationships between quantities.
