DOVER, N.J., April 23, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Casio America, Inc., a leading provider and pioneer of calculation and education technologies, announced its partnership with the Kendall Hunt Publishing Company to integrate Casio's new ClassPad.net calculation software into the Discovering Algebra, Discovering Advanced Algebra, and Discovering Geometry e-textbook series.
"Kendall Hunt described a need for a multi-faceted onscreen calculation space that could be easily integrated into their existing e-book delivery platform," said Jim Gross, General Manager of Casio's Education Division. "Casio's ClassPad.net technology meets students' needs in the areas of high school algebra and geometry, and provides the creative freedom necessary for students to interact with Kendall Hunt's dynamic inquiry-based investigations."
ClassPad.net helps students investigate mathematics deeply and enhance their understanding of related concepts using a single web application. Due to the increasing dominance of touchscreen devices both in and out of the classroom, ClassPad.net is designed to be equally usable by keyboard/mouse and touchscreen-based platforms. The software also takes advantage of Casio's Natural Display technology for input and output of mathematical expressions. ClassPad.net allows simultaneous display of calculation, graphing, geometry, and data analysis/statistics, which allows Kendall Hunt to design even more purposeful and innovative investigations.
"We are excited to enter this partnership with Casio," said Tim Pope, Kendall Hunt Curriculum Director. "The addition of ClassPad.net to the Discovering series is going to provide students and teachers the opportunity to develop their Mathematical Practices while engaging in the investigations of the Discovering series. ClassPad.net will also give students the ability to work collaboratively with teachers and their peers."
Kendall Hunt's Discovering Mathematics series is aligned to the Common Core and designed to engage all students in active learning through a discovery-based, technology-rich approach, building and reinforcing essential skills as they progress. It fully incorporates problem-solving, real-world applications, conceptual understanding, and mathematics as sense making.
