Powerful Combination of Adaptive Learning and Visual Models
PETALUMA, Calif. — Sept. 26, 2013 — Conceptua Math announces Fact Fluency: a newadaptive computing module for its ground-breaking math curriculum. Fact Fluency uses personalized learning algorithms along with Conceptua’s patent-pending visual models. With the introduction of Fact Fluency, Conceptua Math adds the power of adaptive learning to its rich adaptive teaching curriculum.
Conceptua’s new fluency component builds speed and accuracy in math facts. The first Fact Fluency module is in multiplication and division under 100. This scientific advancement takes a baseline measure of student speed on a given computing device, provides practice in math facts with the support of visual models, and then applies a timed skills check.
Fact Fluency is delivered as part of the Conceptua Math core instructional program for grades 3-5. It presents facts in an order that is supported by research and is presented in the Conceptua curriculum. Instead of simply moving from 1s to 2s and up the ladder, Fact Fluency starts with numbers that students can easily skip count, such as 2s, 5s and 10s, and then moves to facts beyond skip counting, such as 7s, 8s and 9s.
Fact Fluency adapts to each student’s personal pace. It provides students with the support of visual models of their choice when they encounter difficult math facts. Students are encouraged to take charge of their own learning experience and monitor their own progress. Fact Fluency includes a Fact Mastery Grid that provides students with a quick snap-shot of their personal progress.
Arjan Khalsa, Conceptua Math CEO, explains, “This new adaptive learning module and Conceptua’s adaptive teaching curriculum offer a powerful combination that employs technology to support both teachers and students. It is an important step forward in our complete classroom solution. ”
