Interactive Tools


Wherever you are in the digital transition, Glencoe Math is there with you, offering interactive tools that get students excited about learning. Powered by your online learning platform, ConnectED, all your digital resources are accessible from school or home.


ALEKS®


Knowing what each of your students is ready to learn right now and then providing targeted instruction on those topics can be a challenge.

ALEKS, the adaptive, online learning resource pinpoints student progress and delivers a personalized learning path using a combination of research-based, content and open-response questioning.

Students can work through content independently in ALEKS or you can use the in-depth reporting tools to identify students who may need one-on-one assistance or extra practice. Additionally, this robust, digital resource allows advanced students to progress at their own pace to enhance their learning.

  • Assign ALEKS as a resource to your students.
  • Students take the assessment to identify which topics they have mastered and which they are ready to learn.
  • Monitor student and class progress from the ALEKS dashboard to prepare for classroom instruction.

LearnSmart®

LearnSmart is an adaptive, online program that covers math topics students are likely to encounter on high-stakes, 21st century assessments.

The program’s adaptive technology evaluates each student’s retention of math concepts to create an individualized study roadmap. A learning cycle of study, practice, and assess is then continually applied, adapting the instruction until topic mastery is reached.

LearnSmart supports improved student achievement by:

  • Identifying and closing knowledge gaps on crucial math topics
  • Improving knowledge retention for better performance on high-stakes tests
  • Mapping out your year-end test prep plan
  • Providing detailed reporting on student and class progress

The Geometer's Sketchpad®


The Geometer’s Sketchpad® helps students illustrate mathematical ideas in a tangible, visual way that increases engagement, understanding, and achievement. With the power of ConnectED math concepts come alive with point-of-use sketches.

  • Embedded activities are available from the eBook
  • Presentation sketches provide detailed notes for in-class us

Virtual Manipulatives


Virtual Manipulatives provide a visual approach to teaching the core principles of math without the classroom cleanup.

Students manipulate, move, and modify math tools they may be using in the classroom such as algebra tiles, compass, and coordinate planes on the computer using mouse clicks or drag-and-drop movements. They learn from understanding how the behavior of the object changes after it has been moved and manipulated.
