eMATH Curricula Provides Affordability and Adaptability
Diane Box has been an educator for 17 years, including 12 years teaching mathematics at Greene County High School in Mississippi. She first discovered eMATHinstruction (eMATH) in 2014 and the curricula is now used by math teachers in 6th grade through high school in her school district.
For a rural school district with limited funding, Diane says that eMATH is a perfect fit. The materials are high quality and easy to use at an affordable price point through the Teacher Plus membership, which she says has enabled teachers to use eMATH as their primary curricula for math.
The lessons build on each other and Diane says that the materials are easy to adjust and adapt as needed. The editable Microsoft Word files available through the Teacher Plus membership are especially helpful, according to Diane, because they enable her to easily customize assessments. Additionally, she says the videos created by eMATH’s founder, Kirk Weiler, can help teachers prepare for lessons and aid students who need additional support learning a concept.
[As a rural school], we don’t have a whole lot of resources. I buy a lot out of my pocket. We have limited money. [eMATH] has been a good resource for us, because it doesn’t cost a whole lot. What we have right now works really well for us.Diane Box, Mathematics Teacher
