Neaton Mathematics and Credly are partnering to issue badges, a form of virtual credentialing, for users that master the Number DNA curriculum.​


As of May 30, we will offer the following 4 badges to those who complete Number DNA curriculum units. We will add two more badges this summer 2020, one for the Exponents and Scientific Notation Unit and another for Radicals and the Pythagorean Rule Unit. Together the 6 badges encompass a prealgebra curriculum that will prepare the badge holder for success in higher level math courses (algebra, trigonometry and beyond) as well as most trade school course work and training.

To start, enroll via subscription in one of the four Number DNA Courses. Upon completion of each course, you will receive an invitation from Credly to claim your badge.
