As countries across the world take steps to stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus, normal school routines are being disrupted. Knowre Math can be a critical resource in helping to ensure that math learning is still occurring at home when students are not able to attend school in-person.

When I started teaching in 2010, the technology in my classroom and school building was extremely limited.
I remember visiting another school during a professional development session and being amazed by their handheld clickers and by a system in the corner where students could feed in a scantron and immediately receive a set of questions printed out just for them.
What would student learning look like in your classroom if you could regularly provide each of your students with an individualized review assignment created just for them?
Now, imagine the process of creating these review assignments for each student. It’s a difficult and time-consuming feat to say the least.
Recognizing the power of appropriately “targeted” assignments, we are excited to announce the Knowre Math Targeted 10. The Knowre Math Targeted 10 feature makes it possible for you to generate individualized review assignments for all of your students in just a couple of minutes. The Targeted 10 assignment is algorithmically-generated to focus on each student’s areas for growth within only the topic areas that you choose.
“I don’t know…” vs. “I don’t know!”
When was the last time you had to admit that you did not know something? How did it feel to make that admission?
Last week a teacher asked me a question about a new Knowre Math feature and I simply did not know the answer. In that moment I felt frustrated and disappointed. I hate not knowing something that I “should” know. While I am not shy to admit “I don’t know”, the phrase itself will often come out in a deflated and disappointed manner.
The Knowre Math Lesson Assignment feature is now available on your Teacher Dashboard! Learn more about the how, when, and why of this new feature below.
Q: Why should I make an assignment when I can just tell students what they should be working on?
There are four main reasons to consider using the Lesson Assignment feature:
The Knowre Math iPad app is now available for download on the App Store.
Knowre Math for iPad transports students into a math learning environment that has been intentionally designed to support and engage them.
Curriculum on the Knowre Math app spans Grade 1 through Algebra 2. The lessons in each curriculum are comprised of instructional videos and intentionally sequenced practice and application questions which include interactive in-question supports.
School districts, now more than ever, are relying on technology in the classroom. Where in the past there may have only been a few options to choose from, today the number of options is vast. Last school year, U.S. school districts accessed an average of 703 different EdTech tools every month. This represents a 28% increase over the 2017-2018 school year. With so many tech tools available, how can teachers go about deciding the what, when, and how of tech tool integration? As with many things in the classroom, the answer actually begins with a question, or in this case, 5.
Here are 5 questions to consider when integrating technology into lesson plans in order to most effectively address student and classwide goals:
Knowre is excited to introduce the new Knowre Math!
Knowre Math is an online core supplement for Grades 1-12 that identifies and addresses individual learning gaps, helping teachers personalize learning for all their students.
Here’s a preview of what you can expect when you log in. We are thrilled that we are finally able to share it with you.
“You’ll have a great time,” the visitor center greeter said as we headed towards the trail in upstate New York. The hike was described as fun, but challenging, and we figured, despite rarely ever hiking, that we’d all be fine. Countless hours later we descended the trail thankful to be alive. Simply put, the trail was much more difficult than we could have ever imagined. While there were optional ladders and ledges placed at certain parts, in others we couldn’t figure out why these supremely helpful elements were frustratingly missing.
It is important when tackling a challenge or learning something new that there are certain supports in place to maximize desired outcomes, decrease frustration, and maintain motivation (at one point on the trail I told my friends it was best they just leave me there). Without the availability of these critical elements it’s all too easy to give up.
