Common Core Buzzwords and Excel Math

Common Core Buzzwords

We've pulled together some of the new Common Core buzzwords and their definitions to help teachers navigate through the maze of information about the new Common Core State Standards.

Differentiated Instruction is one of the terms included in this document.

This is also referred to as "individualized" or "customized" instruction.

The curriculum offers several different learning experiences within one lesson to meet students' varied needs or learning styles.

Excel Math provides lots of opportunities for differentiated instruction.

See how one teacher on the West Coast uses Excel Math to provide differentiated instruction in his classroom.

Take look at the video on the right to see Tim Bedley in action.

This video recorded a few years ago outlines his classroom management system and gives a glimpse of his students in action

As you can see, he provides lots of opportunities for differentiated instruction in his 4th/5th grade classroom.

He's found that Excel Math works well in this type of classroom environment, and is flexible enough to be used as the core curriculum as well as in a supplement position.

Excel Math is fully correlated to the new Common Core Standards.

These lessons help students develop a growth mindset as they learn math with hands-on experiences and activities.

Download correlations by grade level on our Common Core web page.

Excel Math has been effectively used in GATE classes as well as remedial programs (both as a supplement and in a core position) for years.

Excel Math lessons give teachers the resources they need to help every child succeed and achieve (at high levels) in elementary mathematics.

Take a look at our new Excel Math Common Core lessons with our unique CheckAnswer system—giving students a natural feedback loop.

Students can see at a glance which problems they missed and go back and redo the work to get the correct answer.

If they still have trouble, they simply raise their hands so the teacher knows they need help.

This unique system builds confidence and promotes an "I can" attitude of learning among students.

Here's what one teacher shared with us:

"My sixth graders showed an average of 41% one year growth in test scores using the Excel Math program.

For me the key difference your program offers is the consumable worksheets with CheckAnswers.

Students are immediately forced to confront their thinking and errors.

My students typically grow in their ability to persevere as a result of this rigor."

— Public School Teacher on the West Coast
