In three simple steps, you can model solving a math problem or equation from a worksheet directly on your smartphone or tablet. First, take a picture of the worksheet or even a blank piece of paper. Second, automatically record your writing and voice explanation as you solve the math problem directly on the tablet surface. Third, share the recorded video via email or Google drive. Done! If you have a blended classroom, you can share the video to student’s online learning platforms to view independently. For whole-class instruction, send the video to yourself to play for the entire class during your next math mini-lesson.

Motion Math

The Motion Math blended learning tool allows K – 6 students to practice every common core math standard through nine categories of fun online math games. Children can independently access games online using individual computers or using the app on personal tablets. Simply add children’s names to the “roster” and give students the 5-digit access code to access the app or website. While students play and track their own scores, you can track how many minutes they spend practicing each common core skill. You can also see whether a student has “passed” or “failed” a level, or if they are “approaching mastery.” Instead of spending hours on grading and differentiating, simply record student “mastery levels” and allow individual students to spend more time on the skills they struggle with the most.

Motion Math tracks student mastery of math skills along with SEL-aligned skills. SEL stands for social emotional learning. Many school districts now require teachers to have SEL-aligned curriculum to teach students emotional intelligence. Motion Math makes it easy to incorporate SEL into a blended learning Math curriculum by tracking student levels of “growth mindset,” “confidence,” “productive strategy” and “self-regulation.”

Start with the 30-day free trial to try out four of the nine categories of math skills before you commit. For only $40 a year, you will never have to create or grade a boring worksheet again. Instead, enjoy fun, no prep games that teach every common core math skill for grades K – 6.
