Angela Griffin, a 24-year veteran educator at J.W. Stampley, found eMATHinstruction (eMATH) materials approximately three years ago when she was searching for supplemental materials for her Algebra 1 course. As a 9th grade academy with 171 students, Algebra 1 is the only math course offered. She uses the eMATH Algebra 1 curriculum in conjunction with another Algebra 1 curriculum provided by the school district, but she prefers many aspects of eMATH, especially the homework. She says the eMATH materials are a helpful addition.

eMATH Provides Opportunities for Critical Thinking in the Classroom

Scott Sirota, a 16-year veteran math educator at Eric S. Smith Middle School, says he began using eMATHinstruction (eMATH) materials because he was looking for a curriculum for Algebra I that encouraged critical thinking skills. The Algebra I teachers at the school have now used the curriculum for years and they have continued to see success with it. Scott says that students in the school always perform well on standardized tests, but the teachers have seen an improvement in the students' thinking skills since switching to eMATH, which is harder to measure.
