About this Service
Redbird Mathematics- Developed by Stanford University, the Redbird Mathematics curriculum features the latest in adaptive instruction, gamification, and digital project-based learning. This K-6th grade curriculum is designed specifically to meet the requirements of Common Core (Focus, Coherence, and Rigor).
Redbird's K-6 curriculum is designed to meet the requirements of Common Core (Focus, Coherence, and Rigor) and other standards.
- Focus is achieved through an emphasis on the major standards identified by Common Core.
- Coherence is developed by illuminating connections between concepts and utilizing mathematical structure.
- The three components of rigor—conceptual understanding, procedural skill and fluency, and applications—are integrated into the learning experience. Understanding is developed through initial instruction and honed through problem solving. Procedural skill initiates with instruction and fluency is achieved through plenty of practice, including engaging, on- going games. Applications appear throughout courses, in the form of contextualized problems and STEM projects.
Additionally, rich STEM projects, career pathways, and contextualized problems inspire students to develop a love of mathematics and connections to the real world. To actively support teachers, Redbird Mathematics provides recommendations for instructional groups and intervention needs based on key-stroke level data from students’ work in the program.
