TenMarks Adds New Free Features for Teachers

TenMarks is a service that offers an online mathematics program designed to supplement your in-classroom mathematics instruction. The service allows you to choose from a selection of more than 20,000 practice problems to assign to your students through your TenMarks online classroom. TenMarks has added some new free features for the 2014-2015 school year.

The TenMarks teacher dashboard has been updated to provide easier access to your students' performance data. From the dashboard you can view whole class summaries and individual student summaries. You can generate reports about specific standards and assignments while also viewing the amount of time a student spent on a particular assignment.

Middle school and high school teachers will be happy to note that TenMarks has expanded the content available for Algebra, Algebra II, and Geometry.

If you haven't seen or heard of TenMarks before today, watch the short video below for an overview of its core features.

TenMarks Offers 20,000+ Math Practice Problems Aligned to Common Core Standards

TenMarks is a service that offers an online mathematics program designed to supplement your in-classroom mathematics instruction. I tried the service when it launched a couple of years ago. Today, I revisited it when I learned that they now align all of their practice activities to Common Core Standards.

Within TenMarks teachers create class rosters and accounts for their students. After creating rosters teachers can assign practice problems to students. Teachers can assign problems based on the Common Core Standards that their students are trying to reach.

Applications for Education
TenMarks could be an excellent resource for elementary school and middle school teachers. TenMarks provides an efficient way to provide practice problems and track students' progress. The information gathered about students' progress can be used to influence the creation of lesson plans tailored to students' specific needs.

TenMarks - A Free Math Program for Your Class

Disclosure: TenMarks recently became an advertiser on Free Technology for Teachers. Prior to that I wrote about it a couple of times without any input from them.

TenMarks offers a free online mathematics program designed to supplement your in-classroom mathematics instruction. The free TenMarks program covers materials for students in grades two through ten. In the program there are more than 2,000 video lessons available to students to view on demand. Teachers can use the TenMarks program to assign lessons and problems to individual students or to an entire class. Teachers can track the progress of individual students and the progress of an entire class. Watch the video below to learn more about the free TenMarks mathematics program for your classroom.


One of the questions that I'm often asked about free services is, "how can we know it will stay online and free?" While I can never answer that definitively (see Ning as example of a company changing policies) I can pass along the information that TechCrunch reported TenMarks as recently receiving $3million in venture capital. So hopefully, that keeps TenMarks going for a while.

Ten Marks Summer Mathematics Learning

Last fall I wrote about Ten Marks' launch of a free program for teachers called Ten Marks for Educators. Ten Marks for Educators 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.

As a follow-up to the free service that Ten Marks offered teachers this year, they are now offering a summer program for students and their parents. The summer program is designed for students in grades three through twelve. The program provides three assignments a week with video lessons to help students work through the mathematics problems.

The summer program is not free ($39 for three months per student) but the president of Ten Marks, Andrew Joseph, will give away two subscriptions to readers of Free Technology for Teachers who write comments on this post about how they have used Ten Marks in the past or plan to use Ten Marks in the future. On Thursday of this week I'll use a random selector to choose winners. If you win you can give the subscription to a deserving student.

Education Week recently published an article that included a mention of students in Indiana schools and Chicago schools using Ten Marks. In the video below there is a short testimony of 5th grade teacher's experience with Ten Marks.




Just to reiterate, the Ten Marks for Educators program remains free. The summer individual program is a fee-based service but you can win a subscription by commenting on this post.

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.

Learn more about Ten Marks here and in the video below.



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.
