Tech BFF: Ten Marks Math

tenmarksmath logo BFF is an acronym for “Best Friend Forever.” These websites and tips are so good that they will become your technology BFFs!

On first glance, Ten Marks Math displays the four words needed for success in all classroom mathematics:

 Practice  Instruction   Assessment   Intervention

For many years, mathematics was thought of and taught as a series of isolated topics. Students in elementary and middle grades learned number concepts and skills, geometry concepts, and measurement skills. A growing sense of “I’m not good in math” accompanied these isolated content forays. There was little discussion of the relationship among these topics, and little, if any, discussion of connections to the world outside the classroom. Ten Marks Math provides connection points for students and ease of lesson planning for teachers.

Teachers may sign-up for a free account through the end of the school year. Ten Marks Math has two exceptionally appealing time-saving features that I like:

1. Save Time — Assigning Work: The entire assignment process  is condensed to 30 seconds. Pick a chapter and topic(s). Each student gets a slightly different assignment.

2. Save Time — Re-Explaining to Students: Hints and video lessons help students refresh what they know, and learn what they don’t at their own pace. Results display for teachers.

Ten Marks Math layered concept approach adheres seamlessly to the Common Core Standards. The Common Core State Standards for Mathematics represent a connected set of expectations for student knowledge and skills that will lead to successful placement in college and careers.

Teague Note: I received no compensation or incentive to name Ten Marks Math a Tech BFF.
