TenMarks Math is an Amazing Resource

If you are like me, you need a little extra help when it comes to solving math problems. Just the other day, my daughter had asked me for help with her homework and well....I have to admit that I turned to Googling for help. Many of us turn to Khan Academy, which is a good resource; however, another excellent resource could be TenMarks Math.

This is a free resource provided by Amazon for teachers and students. The best part is that it can be accessed from the web or tablet.

Teachers

If you are a teacher, sign up for a free account and create your first class. TenMarks Math asks for the subject area or grade level that you teach. You choose the grade level of students in your classes, so that TenMarks can provide pre-made questions and curriculum. You choose the standards you would like to address and TenMarks Math does the rest! At this point, this tool is designed for students in grades 3 through Algebra 2/Geometry. 

What do students get? 

Students are provided with customized instruction, which is perfect for 1:1 environments that adapts to their needs. As students solve each problem, they are provided with multiples scaffolds and supports to help them solve the problem. If they need help, they are given hints and even have access to a video tutor. Each real-life math problem is engaging and designed to help students see math in a real-world perspective.
