Celebrate Digital Learning Day with Excel Math
Excel Math Projectable Lesson in action
On Feb. 5, 2014, teachers, library media specialists, and students across the nation will celebrate Digital Learning Day as they work to incorporate online learning and resources into their classrooms and libraries.
The day is intended to help educators learn how they can inject more of a digital emphasis into their instruction, and is part of a larger movement to make digital learning more of a mainstay in U.S. classrooms and libraries.
If your students need more basic fact review of math skills, let them try our online timed math practice:
Then take a look at lessons with our unique CheckAnswer system. Excel Math
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 a growth mindset among students.
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.
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.
Our results were so phenomenal that groups of educators would come to observe and film us.
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.
For most students this process results in them eventually turning in all of their problems correct with a few questions which can quickly be addressed afterward in what is an ideal teachable moment."

Here's what one excited mom wrote to tell us:
"My daughter struggled with grasping math concepts until she started with Excel Math in her new school.
It just "clicked" with her and she now maintains a 99% average overall in math!
Now she completes her math homework first because the instant feedback of the 'CheckAnswers' allows her to locate and fix any mistakes on her own.
She no longer has to wait for the teacher to grade her work to find out if she 'gets it'.
Excel Math offers her a level of control that is often missing in other math curricula."
