An innovative and interactive teaching and learning tool, BUILDING MATH SKILLS ONLINE FOR MACHINE TECHNOLOGY is web-based, making it easy for students and instructors alike to use within and beyond the classroom.
Sophisticated diagnostic tests allow instructors to quickly and accurately assess student skill levels to establish baseline general math knowledge, evaluate specific skill sets, or focus on concepts and applications relevant to a specific lesson and course.
Based on students' abilities and interests, instructors can quickly assign personalized, self-directed courses of study with lessons and problems targeting specific areas to reinforce, freeing vital classroom time.
In addition to providing effective instruction in fundamental math concepts and operations, the software strongly emphasizes practical, real-world applications relevant for machine technology, making the material both useful and engaging for students preparing for careers in the industry.
Instructional content was developed based on key government and industry standards and research, including certification requirements by national professional groups, Common Core Standards by state-level curriculum consortia, guidelines from National Institute of Metalworking Skills (NIMS), and Department of Education requirements for Perkins 4 funding.
An ideal core resource for applied and technical math courses, as well as a highly effective supplement for courses on trades, the software allows instructors to easily integrate relevant math concepts or collaborate with colleagues in other areas without sacrificing classroom time or instructional focus.
