"BuzzMath has been a huge motivator for my intervention students AND my advanced students. The app is visually appealing and easy to use!", states Derek Pipkorn, 8th Grade Math Teacher from Milwaukee. "The confidence level of my students has skyrocketed, as they continue to complete assignments at or above their level."
"We take every opportunity to observe students actively working in their classrooms to determJean-ine what we can do to enhance their learning experience. If we improve their learning experience they become more engaged. If they are engaged, they spend more time on task resulting in measurable progress" says Carl Malartre, President of Scolab.
Students and teachers can now download the app from the Apple App Store for free. Accounts can be upgraded to Premium for $5 per student. Premium features are now available for educators at no cost until July 1st, 2013.
