Build confidence, perseverance and a love (or at least a strong like) for math! Classbloom Mathematics includes K-8 problem-solving activities to help students develop reasoning skills and improve math communication while interacting with technology they'll love.
What's your teaching style? Whole class, small groups, using a mix of technology? Our math activities work with your lesson plans. Classbloom math problems are designed for you to go deeper into math concepts with your students. Once your students master these problems, you'll have no doubt that they're ready for the problems they'll see on their high-stakes test.
Each lesson includes problems presenting the same grade level standard at three levels of difficulty. Yes, we've done that work for you!
The problems are differentiated in a variety of ways, including:
Help students reach deeper levels of conceptual understanding with Investigative problems. These critique and precision activities require that students analyze and critique sample work, defend their choices and evaluate errors. Assign problems for group work and you'll be amazed by the math conversations as students discuss which answer is correct and why!
Students choose from a variety of digital tools to demonstrate their thought process and solving strategies. Gain real-time insight into their math thinking. Which tools are they using to solve? Did they access hints? View students' work as it's happening.
Scaffold math communication by having them record their explanations, draw their solving method and snap a pic, or type explanations.
Digital tools include:
Walking that balance of guiding students to the right answer rather than telling them can be a challenge. Classbloom mathematics includes resources to help foster productive struggle.
Each activity includes:
I love Classworks! I think it's easy-to-use and makes my life easier in terms of tailoring instruction for every student. It is a good way to individualize your students' learning and as a teacher to know if you are being effective.

With our high achieving students, I have seen the impact of Classworks in Math. When we are problem-solving, some of those students are able to use higher-level strategies because of the exposure from Classworks. In Reading, some of our stragglers are getting a refresher on reading foundation skills that are no longer taught in the 4th-grade curriculum. I look forward to seeing their growth this year!
