DALLAS, Aug. 19, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Voyager Sopris Learning™, provider of evidence-based preK–12 instructional solutions and professional services, is pleased to announce the release of TransMath® Third Edition for grades 5-10. Available for immediate implementation, authors John Woodward and Mary Stroh revised TransMath to reflect more rigorous math standards and a more direct progression to algebra readiness.
TransMath is a comprehensive math intervention curriculum that targets middle and high school students who lack the foundational skills necessary for entry into algebra and are, typically, two or more years below grade-level.
Third Edition includes:
- New models to support deep understanding of math topics
- Stronger transition to algebra readiness with earlier introduction of algebra and more advanced concepts
- New online Teacher Center and Student Center to provide access to all materials in one place
- New digital manipulatives for teachers and students
- Key recommendations for improving and deepening problem-solving skills
- New use of Quantile-based assessments for both entry into curriculum and grade-level-specific progress assessments
“Algebra is a critical gatekeeper to more advanced math in high school and beyond—the Third Edition of TransMath provides a path to accelerate student growth toward algebra readiness,” said Jeffrey A. Elliott, president of Voyager Sopris Learning. “Ultimately, the goal is to support students in achieving increased academic outcomes and a more positive attitude toward math.”
In addition to the enhancements, TransMath Third Edition has preserved proven-effective elements of the second edition, including dual-topic approach, fewer topics in greater depth, acceleration toward grade-level mathematics, and strong teacher support with lesson-by-lesson models.
