Online math textbook enhances learning for Wichita students

Filed under: Educational Technology — admin @ 12:30 am


Algebra and geometry in Wichita schools just got a little more real-world and a lot more online. The district launched a new online textbook this fall for middle- and high-school students that aims to reinforce standard math concepts with online videos, games, drag-and-drop puzzles and other activities geared toward more visual learners. “Everything is done within the context of the new (Kansas College and Career Ready) standards,” said Liz Peyser, a middle-school math coach for the Wichita district. The new standards are based primarily on Common Core State Standards, an outline of what students should learn in math and English in each grade through high school.
