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.

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!
Classworks is the one intervention that was a non-negotiable and was truly implemented with fidelity from 1st grade to 5th grade. The teachers at Northside Elementary really like the program and the fact that is directly correlated to STAR which ultimately helps to improve their results for each of their student learning objectives regardless of where they are based on grade level!
Classroom centers are a powerful way to transform traditional whole-group learning into an interactive, differentiated, learning experience. That being said, even the most confident teachers can feel intimidated by the thought of handing students the reigns while they sit back and observe from their kidney-shaped tables.
During our C3 sessions, administrators saw firsthand how investing in professional learning can set the tone for a successful implementation. Although there were many gems to pull from the engaging discussions we had during the conference, here are three of the biggest takeaways educators loved from C3.
This year, the Classworks team of educators are focused on giving you new ways to step outside the box and see the full potential of what your instructional program can do. We want to help you leverage technology to reimagine learning experiences -- and save you some heavy lifting along the way!
