iLikeMath mag. Dear Friends, The ability to adapt as things change is not part of the education system in America, Katrina Stevens, director of learning science at the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, and Matt Greenfield, managing partner of Rethink Education, wrote in a recent Ed Surge article. Yet many careers, from game design to engineering, require the ability to adjust plans as something is built and constructed.

REAL-WORLD EXPERIENCES ARE CRUCIAL FOR STUDENTS Lauren Barack

The Need Every Student Succeed Act (ESSA) is the law that guides schools’ requirements for

scholars’ success perimeters. The law requires: movement toward equity for disadvantaged and high need scholars, all scholars to be taught with high academic standards as preparation for college and career success, education and support communities receive important information from annual assessments that measure scholars’ progress toward high standards, assistance to support and grow local innovations developed by local leaders, and action for positive change and accountability in lowest performing school and students not making progress. https://www.ed.gov/essa

The iLikeMath System The reward system built in to the iLikeMath curriculum sets it apart from other learning software and builds skills students will need to succeed in the 21stCentury.  Students who display growth and development through their exercise and assessment scores from the iLikeMath platform can earn points for rewards through the JSC Cares meritocracy program, which brings businesses and communities together to support and engage students.
