Brainingcamp offers browser-based middle school math software (though subject-based apps are also being developed) that has been designed around the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics focal points and state math standards for grades 6-8. It can be used to introduce concepts or to make abstract concepts more concrete and visually understandable.
Students start with short 5-10 minute lessons covering more than 50 topics, which introduce math concepts using animations and narrations. Then, students can explore the interactive models (“virtual manipulatives”), answer questions, and play games based on real-world scenarios. Teachers or parents can find activities according to standard, and also view real-time progress reports with detailed data showing what students have worked on and how well they have performed (though only on certain multiple-choice questions, not on open-ended problems).
