How and Why?
Number DNA Beta-Data
Students in middle schools, high schools and community colleges enjoyed immediate success.
310 students completed 97,000 problems with an accuracy rate of 92%
90 students completed 27,380 problems with a 89% accuracy.
159 students completed over 250,000 problems with a 89% accuracy.
High Level Mastery Learning
Programmed into Number DNA are two measures for mastery; accuracy and time.
The accuracy threshold averages 90% over 300+ unique workouts, quizzes and tests.
The time thresholds vary with each topic and are set to prevent using a calculator to solve mental math problems like; what is 8 x 8? Or what is 25% of 80? Or what is -7 -10?
Vertical Learning Modules
Each unit focuses on mastering selected skills at a high level.
Tedious practice, long chapters, and the lack of timely feedback are motivation killers for many when attempting to learn math.
Number DNA has a radically different design. Number DNA units are short and are comprised of 3-minute workouts that provide instant feedback and next steps.
When students master topics and skills at a high level, they are confident and motivated to take on the next unit of learning.
