Used by nearly 50% of U.K. high schools, SAM Learning U.K. has translated its math and science content to U.S. standards.
Content has been aligned to standards from National Science Teachers Association, the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, and the state standards and high school exit exams in California, Florida, Georgia, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, New York, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Virginia.

SAM Learning U.K. released the product after more than 32,000 hours of pilots in U.S. classrooms. Student-driven learning is a new idea for U.S. schools but not in the U.K., where SAM Learning has been refining the concept for more than five years. The primary point behind student-driven learning is that students are empowered to be successful with choices: the route they choose, the skills they practice, and the time they commit. SAM Learning’s program is self-directed so that teachers can use it as a supplement, relying on its intrinsic motivation and a step-wise approach to building skills and practicing for exams.
