“Transitioning to Common Core will be a huge adjustment for both teachers and students as they return to school in the fall, particularly for older students who haven’t grown up with these new standards,” said Vinod Lobo, the co-founder of Learning Upgrade. “Getting Math Upgrade 8 ready for ‘back to school’ season was so important to us, and we hope this course will make the first weeks of school a little easier – and more fun!”
Rather than just doing the bare minimum to put a “Common Core-aligned”
To further ease the transition to Common Core, Learning Upgrade is also offering 20 complimentary student licenses to U.S. schools with 300 or more students. Teachers can enroll students into any of the Math Upgrade and English Upgrade courses, which feature songs, video, and games to bring students up to proficiency. One teacher license is included for whole-class interactive musical lessons.
