New math readiness pathway introduced

May 13, 2019 | Ascend Math

In honor of teacher appreciation, Ascend Education has announced the addition of a new Algebra Readiness Customized Pathway to support teachers around the country.

The Ascend Math Algebra Readiness Course builds understanding by linking together algebra concepts within and across grade levels:

  • Diagnoses student skill gaps providing a deep dive into logical prerequisites based Algebra I standards taught concurrently in the Algebra class.
  • Prescribes individual learning paths on these prerequisites. Students work only on the objectives they do not know in a sequenced order and build understanding by linking together concepts within and across grades.
  • Motivates students through award winning online instruction and explorations.

When implementing Ascend Math Algebra Readiness, students work at their own pace filling gaps quickly. Most educators choose to have students attend Algebra Class while using Ascend Math in a second math elective, remediation block or at home.

“Since passing Algebra I in ninth grade doubles a student’s chances of graduating high school, this new offering directly supports our mission,” said Kevin Briley, CEO of Ascend Education. “Ascend Education’s mission is to help 10 million students graduate high school by helping students find success in Algebra I.”
