Build Procedural Fluency with Core Math Skill Practice Questions

Repetitive practice can help students build the procedural fluency they need for success in math courses. That’s why we’ve added hundreds of standards-aligned Skill Practice questions to our Core Math subject guides. Check out this Skill Practice subtopic on simplifying radicals for a preview of the accessible questions and detailed explanations in our new Skill Practice levels.

Quicker classroom setup

We’ve made it easier for teachers to create classes and invite students, so teachers can focus on providing students with practice. Now, teachers can create multiple classes and invite all their students to enroll in a matter of minutes, all from your classes dashboard.

Assess Science Skills with New Diagnostic Pre-Tests

We have just launched new, standards-aligned “pre-test” diagnostics in Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Earth and Space Science, AP® Biology, and AP® Chemistry. These exams assess the prerequisite knowledge and skills students need for success in their science courses. These 20 to 30-question assessments can be used in a virtual, hybrid, or “live” classroom.

Easily open or close access to independent practice

We've made it easier for teachers to manage which questions their students can practice!

Teachers can now restrict students from independently practicing questions, so their students will only have access to the practice questions they've been assigned. We've added a "Class Subjects" tab to each classroom, to help teachers quickly manage classroom permissions.

We've also made it easier for teachers to open independent practice for multiple classrooms, so their students can start independently practicing all questions in a subject.

Pinpoint Student Understanding with Core Math Diagnostics

Our entire suite of high school math courses -- Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, and Precalculus -- now includes diagnostic assessments. These 30-question exams are built to assess student mastery of the prerequisite skills and understandings required for success in these math courses. Built to be completed in a single class period, these diagnostics are essential to gauging student mastery at the start of a new school year.
