Renaissance Learning introduces Accelerated Math Live

Custom built for the Common Core, now students can work online or on paper.

WISCONSIN RAPIDS, Wis., Jan. 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Renaissance Learning announced today the newest version of Accelerated Math—the most widely used math program in K12 schools. The new Accelerated Math Live will be available for the 2013-2014 school year.

At the heart of Accelerated Math Live is the Core Progress learning progression. New content has been built from the ground up specifically designed to meet the spirit and intent of the Common Core State Standards, with new content libraries from kindergarten through high school. Custom content also aligns to state standards, including the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) test.

With Accelerated Math Live's new online program, students can view and answer math problems using computers, laptops, or touch-screen tablets—or use paper and pencil. Working online, students' work is scored instantly, and teachers can monitor progress and guide instruction more quickly than ever.

According to Jack Lynch, CEO of Renaissance Learning, Accelerated Math Live is a quantum leap forward in tailoring instruction for the common core. "With the rapid adoption of mobile technology in schools, Accelerated Math Live helps educators get more value from that investment. Students will become more self-directed with Accelerated Math Live's instructional resources at their fingertips—worked examples, related math glossary terms, and other tools linked to the problems they are working. Teachers will have more options to teach in an interactive, engaging classroom environment—peer-assisted learning, think-alouds, small group discussions, one-on-one instruction—even a flipped classroom. With Accelerated Math Live, teachers can easily tailor their instruction to the personal needs of each student. They'll have more options than ever to help propel students to college and career readiness."

From the earliest days of the Common Core State Standards Initiative, Renaissance Learning has worked closely with leaders in the movement to strongly align its assessment and practice tools with the CCSS. "Accelerated Math Live is the culmination of years of study, rigorous development and empirical validation. The new Accelerated Math libraries and Core Progress learning progression represent an enormous step forward based on best practices in the industry," said Lynch.

In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists will look at the protocols that communicate data and the emerging data analy...
Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
