Accelerate Learning is adding a new dimension to its STEM curriculum solutions with the release of its first core mathematics program, STEMscopes™ Math. The online, comprehensive math curriculum launches this month in Texas.
In the first year, the new STEMscopes Math curriculum will be available for grades 3–5. The core program is built from the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS), and it will be available in English and Spanish. Accelerate Learning will then expand the curriculum to grades K–8 and launch Common Core and custom state versions in the coming years. Like other STEMscopes products, STEMscopes Math will be customized to meet the exact state standards at each grade level.
Using the 5E plus Intervention and Acceleration lesson model, STEMscopes Math provides interactive learning using the Concrete Representational Abstract (CRA) approach. The curriculum features inquiry-based math investigations, virtual manipulatives, and interactive games to engage students as they build their understanding. It supports critical thinking and real-world exploration with open-ended, cross-dimensional tasks that promote a range of student approaches and responses in multiple contexts.
For teachers, STEMscopes Math provides embedded strategies for diverse learners, including English language learners and students who need additional support.
STEMscopes Math has partnered with MetaMetrics to include predictive assessments for each grade level to provide standards-based data and Quantile measures that track student progress and inform instruction.
STEMscopes solutions can be used in 1:1, blended, and traditional classrooms.
