Nonprofit branches out to elementary grades with free interactive practice and videos for K1-5 math

CK12-mathThe CK-12 Foundation has launched its first free interactive math practice problems and videos for K1-5 grade levels. The new offering is fully aligned to Common Core and represents the first time that CK-12’s content and tools will be available for the full K-12 spectrum.

CK-12’s new K1-5 Math is designed to help elementary school teachers, students and parents build a strong math foundation to support children’s future success in school and careers.

CK-12’s free STEM learning platform–created by teachers for teachers–is used in more than 30,000 schools worldwide and will now include a wide range of practice problems with video-based hints and step-by-step solutions. Challenging students to practice through multiple problems for a concept is expected to help deepen their understanding and provide teachers with additional resources to engage students.
