Core Math Jam is a new Common Core-aligned mathematics app developed by teachers to support students as they transition to the new standards.
> Built for the Common Core
In Core Math Jam 6, students practice and master individual question items and earn points as they advance through the main strands: Number Systems, Expressions and Equations, Geometry, Statistics and Rations and Proportions.
> Engaging content
Students can customize their experience by choosing their notebook style and avatar, and unlock other avatars as they increase their points. Multiple choice-based questions are made to appeal to sixth graders who are generally sick of bland and uninspiring question items.
>Progress towards standard mastery
Students can keep track of their progress through their various strands by tracking their overall accuracy and their progress towards mastery of all the individual questions. A student must answer each question correctly at least twice in a row from their selected and shuffled set of questions. The program adapts to the students by offering them only the question items they have not yet mastered. They can keep practicing until they master them all.
With a built in scratch paper feature, students can draw on the iPad and diagram, draw, perform algorithms, or doodle their way to success.
If students get stuck they can get a detailed explanation of how and why a particular answer is correct. Doing so will deduct points, however.
App supports and saves multiple users, ideal for a classroom with one or few iPads.
