We know many students struggle to master fractions, and yet until recently, we didn’t know the full extent of the cost. From recent research, it is clear that facility with fractions is critical to higher mathematics and other advanced STEM fields.
While we carefully crafted the free tier of Adaptive Learning to give you a substantial (and flexible) amount of content, we understand that you might want more. Maybe a lot more! We want more teachers to try Woot Math and see, first-hand, the positive effects for their students. We have launched a referral program that will help us get the word out to more teachers and help you unlock more free content at the same time! We think it is a win-win for you and for us.
Do your students still struggle with word problems? Do they ever ask you “when are we going to use this in the ‘real world’? If so, we’ve got the poll for you! This poll helps guide students through building linear equations that model the cost of two different cars over time, one hybrid-electric, one regular. This post highlights how polls can help you scaffold a problem and also how to use the scratchpad in combination with the prompt in rich math tasks.
This week, we are focusing on how to use features in Woot Math to offer support to students who might be struggling on a given task. This week’s WootPoll uses the context of a fish tank to have students model a linear equation, find the x- and y-intercepts and construct a graph. This poll is quicker than previous weekly WootPolls and can be used as an exit ticket or warm up.
There is nothing worse than falling in love with a product during a free trial, and then not being able to afford it once the trial is over. Or being lured in by an offer for a free version of a product, only to find that it is so bare-bones so as to be almost useless. Woot Math’s Free Tier for Teachers is designed to provide enough content for hours of in-classroom use so that you can meaningfully try Adaptive Practice with your students without the constraints of a free trial period. We realize that you have limited time and resources, and our free tier is yours to use this year, next year and beyond. (Our other product, WootPolls, is always 100% free to teachers and students.)
