How I Use It
Redbird Mathematics was used in several ways. The students worked on their own learning individual skills and at their own pace. They monitored their progress along with me. The students also used this program for homework. Often I would work one on one with the students if they had questions or needed extra support solving a problem. I would also use the reports created by Redbird to have individual conferences with each student to help them stay on track. From the reports, I could make small groups that would address a skill or topic that those students needed review or reteaching.
Overall this is the best math program that I have used with my students. My class is a Personalized Learning classroom and after trying multiple programs, this one kept the students engaged longer and at a rigor that was individualized and appropriated for that student at their level. It helps me know exactly what math level each of my students are at and which skills they specifically need more review with. It also lets me know which students are excelling which helps me know how to support the Advanced Students. The students like the graphics, games and general layout of the program.
