“Teachers have been anticipating the release of Math Upgrade 7, and we couldn’t be more excited to have the courses available for use in preventing the summer slide,” said Vinod Lobo, co-founder and CEO of Learning Upgrade.
Math Upgrade 7 is designed to support student mastery of all 7th grade Common Core standards (http://www.learningupgrade.com/
The Math Upgrade 7 course includes an initial set of 50 Common Core lessons, with additional lessons added during the summer. Each full course takes students 20-25 hours, both in the classroom and at home, to complete and earn a certificate.
To further support educators in their fight against the summer slide, Learning Upgrade is offering complimentary summer school licenses (http://blog.learningupgrade.com/
“As more schools make the transition to Common Core, we know that even the best students will need extra support,” said Lobo. “Our hope is that by providing complimentary access over the summer, educators will have the tools they need to ensure every student is set up for success.”
The company plans to release Math Upgrade 8; a similar course designed for 8th grade students, later this summer. Math Upgrade 1 through 6 are already available.
