TenMarks revamps website for Common Core math practice
Redesigned from the ground up, TenMarks’ new library of 20,000-plus math problems aligns with the Common Core State Standards.
The newly redesigned version includes more than 20,000 questions created specifically around the Common Core standards, including conceptual and procedural questions that vary in answer type and difficulty and that engage learners at different depths of knowledge.
To guide students during their math practice, TenMarks provides hints and video lessons. The hints offer scaffolded conceptual context and explanation, and they also explore problem-solving methods and processes, TenMarks says.
When a student completes an assignment, TenMarks’ adaptive engine instantly grades their work and encourages them to review incorrect answers. TenMarks also includes standard and grade-level assessments modeled after SBAC and PARCC questions, so teachers can monitor their students’ progress toward mastery of the Common Core standards.
TenMarks Math is free for students to use for practice and instruction, including math practice at home. A premium version, available for a subscription fee, provides actionable diagnostic assessments, as well as automated recommendations for additional assignments that directly address areas of need and enrichment.
“I haven’t found another program that allows me to really tailor the work so effectively,” one teacher wrote in a testimonial on the TenMarks website. “My children who struggle love the hints and videos. … It truly allows them to learn independently.”
