Adaptive and Personalized Curriculum
KnowRe’s standards-based mathematics curriculum is aligned with the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and is designed to address the needs of students of all abilities. Our curriculum designers bring many combined years of classroom teaching experience and training to the development of KnowRe’s comprehensive and rigorous curricula and have included tools for building a basic understanding of concepts and skills while also offering materials for practice, reinforcement, application and remediation. KnowRe currently offers Algebra I and Pre-Algebra.
KnowRe’s Practice problems are designed to introduce skills and concepts, and provide students practice for those skills.
Application problems require the student to take a number of different mathematical concepts and skills and to apply those concepts toward solving a problem. Many of KnowRe’s application problems are real-life, word problems.
- Personalized Review
As students work through KnowRe, KnowRe is continuously assessing the student’s knowledge and understanding of the presented materials. As KnowRe gathers the data around each student’s knowledge in real-time, it also generates a personalized set of review materials to help reinforce and remediate the individual student’s areas of weakness.
- Walk Me Through
Many of KnowRe’s math problems come with the “Walk Me Through” option, offering students interactive, step-by-step guidance for solving math problems. KnowRe models the way a teacher interacts with an individual student as the student solves a math problem in the “Walk Me Through,” and in doing so, simultaneously instructs and assesses the student’s understanding of very granular knowledge and concepts.
Every lesson in KnowRe begins with a cartoon illustrating a real-life situation in which the learned mathematical concepts can be applied.
- Concept Videos
Hundreds of bite-sized videos are available in KnowRe throughout the curriculum. KnowRe’s videos cover mathematical concepts as well as skills in a concise, direct, and easy-to-understand manner.
We believe that learning is most effective when students are engaged and having fun. So, we’ve designed KnowRe to delight and engage students while learning mathematics. The good news is that we are not yet done adding gamified features. We’ve got a lot more fun and social features in the pipeline so stay tuned for more updates!
KnowRe’s learning map is often compared to many of the most beloved games. Students expand their math knowledge while exploring new areas on the map. It is not only important to expand one’s territory but to ensure that knowledge is built to stand the test of time.
- Coins and Stars
KnowRe’s gamified achievement system helps to enhance student engagement throughout the learning experience. Many of our teachers have told us how students can’t get enough of KnowRe, and that they can’t get the students to stop!
KnowRe’s simple and intuitive Teacher Dashboard enables teachers to track student progress and assign homework. It offers both a Class view and a Student view which allow teachers to track classroom progress as well as drill down to each students’ individual progress and understanding of concepts on a granular level, which we call Knowledge Units.
- Classroom and Student Progress
Teachers easily view classroom and student progress in numerical scores which are transferrable to the teacher’s gradebook. The score-based data is also color-coded for easy viewing, and its simplicity helps teachers quickly see the data at a glance.
One-touch assignment feature enables teachers to easily assign lessons and/or KnowRe’s individualized review curriculum. KnowRe also does all the grading, so teachers no longer have to!
- Actionable Data
Teachers can not only see how students are progressing in each lesson, but discover which specific concepts known as “knowledge units,” are causing the class, or student to struggle. KnowRe offers the most granular and accurate assessment of each individual student’s knowledge, which makes KnowRe’s real-time data extremely useful and actionable for the teacher in the classroom.
