Ten Marks for Educators - Online Math Instruction

Ten Marks, an online mathematics tutoring service, recently launched a free program for teachers. The new Ten Marks for educators is designed to be a supplement to classroom instruction, not a replacement for it.

Ten Marks provides educators with an online forum in which they can assign mathematics practice problems to students and track their students' progress. If a student gets stuck on a problem he or she can open a tutorial to help him or her through the problem. Ten Marks provides teachers with the option to CC parents on the assignments sent to students. The online curriculum provided by Ten Marks can be aligned to the state standards a teacher chooses.

Applications for Education
As mentioned above, Ten Marks is designed to be a supplement to classroom instruction. What I like about Ten Marks is that unlike traditional mathematics homework assignments in which a student is left on his own when he gets stuck, Ten Marks provides a way for students to get help to work through a tough problem.

Week in Review - The Most Popular Posts

It's Saturday Morning in Maine and as I do every week, I've compiled a list of the most popular posts of the week. Someone asked me this week why I write these weekly lists. The reason is that many readers have said to me that they like because it provides a quick way to get caught-up on things they might have missed during a busy week of teaching. Speaking of busy weeks, I hope you all have some time this weekend to unwind from your busy weeks.

Here are the most popular posts of the last week:
