Basic Algebra Shape-Up helps students master specific basic algebra skills while providing teachers with measurable results. Concepts covered include creating formulas using ratios proportions and scale working with integers simple and multi-step equations and variables. Students start with an assessment and receive immediate instructional feedback throughout. Step-by-step tutorials which introduce each level can be referred to during practice. Problems are broken down into small easily understood steps. The program is self-paced and self-monitored. Students advance as they demonstrate readiness. They may track their own improvement through progress-to-date and last session scores. Scores are kept in a record management system that allows teachers to view and print detailed reports. Designed for students in U.S. grades 6 through 9 (age 10 and up) the program can also be used by ESL and adult students interested in improving their algebra skills.
