Math program for grades 2-5 based on international standards with training for teachers

Overview

Reasoning Mind is a game-based math curriculum for 2nd to 5th grade students. Students play in a virtual city where they complete a progression of math challenges designed to prepare them for their first algebra course. Reasoning Mind requires a license to use.

Approach

Once a student signs into a Reasoning Mind (RM) account, the student will guide their avatar, a Tech Genie, through “RM City” and complete lessons and activities. When the student starts a lesson, they have a warm up exercise, a theory lesson, and then related math problems. The theory lesson utilizes virtual manipulatives to explain the “Why” of a concept. Exercises and problems come with self-discovery resources for students to help them solve the problem. If Reasoning Mind notices that a student is struggling on a topic from an earlier grade level, it will focus on mastering those skills so students have the basis for understanding more complex ones. Students can access their own notes, previous lessons, and a glossary before they need to ask a teacher for assistance. When students accurately complete lessons and exercises, they gain points. Those points can be turned in at Reasoning Mind’s virtual shopping mall for rewards to keep in their virtual home library like watching, reading stories, and purchasing accessories.

For teachers, Reasoning Mind provides courses on how to utilize the product in their classroom. Teachers have access to students’ Reasoning Mind data through a dashboard, allowing the teacher to document a student’s progress or to compare points and accuracy. Using that data, a teacher can assign particular lessons or control a student’s access to certain areas of “RM city”.

IMPLEMENTATION

Reasoning Mind can be accessed from any modern browser with “Flash” installed.

PRICING

Reasoning Mind requires a license for parents and schools:

  • Parents may purchase Reasoning Mind for $20 per student per month.
  • Schools can purchase the product for $88 per student per year.
  • Further discounts are also provided, depending on the scale of implementation.

WHO IS USING IT

As of May 2015, over 50,000 students and more than 1,000 teachers in over 100 schools use Reasoning Mind.
