Voyager Learning Re-Launches VmathLive

Stocks in this article: ABCD





DALLAS, Aug. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Voyager Learning, the nation's most comprehensive provider of preK–12 print and online intervention learning solutions and education services, today announced the re-launch of its VmathLive program, a web-based online math resource that creates a stimulating game environment for students in grades 2-8. Math will virtually "unfold" for students using  VmathLive as they gain greater confidence in their math abilities and improve their results in a unique origami-themed program. Students can also compete with other students throughout the country in live competition of mental math skills in the annual Math Mania competition.

With VmathLive, students can practice and sharpen their mental math skills, prepare for high-stakes tests, and play in real-time competitions of speed and skill—all in an exciting, web-based environment. More than 265,000 students are currently enrolled in VmathLive this school year, spending 40 minutes per week practicing their math skills online.   

"With the re-launch of VmathLive, we are able to deliver new reporting features for administrators and teachers, provide support for the Common Core and State Standards alignment, and offer iPad compatibilities," says Alan Nowakowski, senior vice president of product development and strategy at Voyager Learning.       

For students, VmathLive's new learning pedagogy offers scaffolded help with problems-specific step-by-step hints and onscreen tutoring focused on visual representations of math concepts with both English and Spanish audio.  The learning path is structured so that students work sequentially through a year's worth of math, and they are encouraged to stay on track with messaging, badges, trophies, points, and other  engagement strategies. Students can use VmathLive's new Play component for 20 different games that focus on mental math skills found in the Common Core State Standards. When VmathLive is used as a stand-alone supplemental program, the activities are aligned with lessons of popular core print programs,  Common Core State Standards, and other state standards.                                                       

For teachers and administrators, VmathLive's new, easy-to-use Teacher Dashboard provides at-a-glance class progress with alerts for students who need one-on-one or extra help. VmathLive also provides school and district roll-up reporting features, so that student results are easily accessed at the class, school, and district levels from VPORT (Voyager's Teacher and Administrator Data Management System).                         

Educators can experience a free trial at www.voyagerlearning.com/vmathlive.
