Newton, MA, November 05, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- TenMarks Education Inc., a pioneer in online math education, launched a free version of its acclaimed math program today – exclusively for schools. Starting today, teachers across the country can sign up their classes (grades 3 and up) for the interactive math practice and learning environment – absolutely free.
TenMarks is a structured program of practice, on-demand hints, video instruction, and real time results to motivate, instill confidence, and improve student achievement. The TenMarks approach gives students a variety of problems on each topic, and ability to use hints if they need a little nudge, and immediate video lessons for them to refresh and learn the topic – on the spot. The end result – students refresh what they know and learn what they don’t. Since the company launched a year ago, TenMarks has been used by thousands of families across the country. With today’s launch of the free offering for schools, TenMarks is making our proven method of on-demand learning accessible to all students.
Educators can sign up their classes in just a few minutes, and use TenMarks as a supplement to their classroom instruction. They can choose their own curriculum (mapped to state standards), assign work to students, have it automatically graded immediately, review individual and class performance, and most importantly, take immediate action. TenMarks is effective and very easy to use – it was designed with the input of classroom teachers across the country.
“The TenMarks program is a wonderful complement to classroom instruction," said Dr. Christine Moynihan, an experienced math educator in Massachusetts. “It gives teachers a way to ensure that all students have additional access to the concepts introduced in class, thereby adding to students' understanding and skill. This is done in a motivating way so that each student can reinforce and solidify learning while moving at his/her individual pace."

“TenMarks is excited about opening up our offering to schools and bringing quality supplemental math learning to the masses,” said Rohit Agarwal and Andrew Joseph, co-founders of TenMarks. “The free offering for schools was a result of feedback from many of the 6000 teachers who use our math video lessons – they said a practice environment would be a perfect compliment to the videos. We believe we’ve designed a program that is super-easy to use for teachers and students, and delivers immense value.”
Teachers are increasingly looking for software tools that can help them provide differentiated learning for students. They want software that help students practice and refresh what’s been covered in class in a simple and effective way, helping them when needed. They want software and at little or no cost – that they can bring into their schools while they are trying to save money in their school budgets. TenMarks fills that void with a free and amazing web-based math practice program, which does not require any software installation, and can be used both in school and at home.
TenMarks continues to offer it’s premium personalized program to families for an affordable $10 a month, which gives students a personalized curriculum mapped to their individual needs, and guides them through the topics in an adaptive way. Students who use the free version through their school, and would like a personalized curriculum with automated and adaptive assignments can upgrade to the premium version easily.
TenMarks’ new educational initiative helps address the need for supplemental education to be accessible, affordable and effective. TenMarks believes in promoting greater achievement on a national level, and that every child, irrespective of their school, state or socio-economic status deserves the opportunity to build a strong educational foundation. Founded in 2009, TenMarks Education is located in Newton, MA.
