Research Based Cognitive Science
As educators, we often focus on getting information into students’ brains. Research shows that recall, or intentionally drawing information out of the brain, is one of the strongest contributors to long-term retention. In mathematics in particular, students can’t just read over their notes to “review”; they need to be DOING the math!
At Get More Math, we still believe that teachers are the experts in instructional delivery and guiding students through review and application. We’ve employed the power of technology to allow teachers to build assignments that appropriately space, vary, and interleave retrieval practice and empower teachers to help students master mathematics.
Committed use of Get More Math binds recurring formative assessment to continual differentiated practice. Our software leverages research-based retrieval practice to break the forgetting cycle through individualized, spiraled mathematics practice and mixed review sessions.
