GAINESVILLE, FL, July 16, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Math Nation/Algebra Nation, the premier provider of high school math video tutorials, with over 1,000,000 users, has released a comprehensive middle school mathematics curriculum using the top-rated OER (Open Educational Resources) curriculum...at half the cost of other 6-8 math programs. The content from Open Up Resources (written by Illustrative Mathematics) has received the top rating from EdReports and is currently in hundreds of school districts throughout the country.
With the release of Math Nation's version of these high-quality instructional materials, schools finally have a genuinely low-cost option for the Open Up Resources 6-8 Math materials (written by Illustrative Mathematics) for the classroom. Math Nation has leveraged their expertise in the development of color workbooks and online platforms to provide this compatible content at the cost of just $12.00 per student per year, saving schools over 50% off of their current provider's workbooks. In addition to providing the content in a workbook format, Math Nation also provides a unique, robust website which includes an iOS/Android mobile apps, engaging student lesson tutorial videos, fully digital textbooks, online practice, Teacher Professional Learning videos, and a moderated Teacher community for extra instructional support.
Rachael Smilowitz, Middle School Math District Instructional Specialist in Charleston County School District (SC) shared, "We are so excited! With the cost of the workbooks being half the price, we can purchase for twice as many schools!"
John Morris, Secondary Math Specialist in Hernando County School District (FL) stated, "Our teachers have used Math Nation for high school math for several years now and are very excited to now add the new middle grades content as our core curriculum this fall!"
Katie Moore, Secondary Math Coach in Walton County School District (FL) agreed, "Walton County loves the Open Up Resources, and we are thrilled that Math Nation is offering the workbooks at a fraction of the cost. We can't wait to use them this school year!"
Ethan Fieldman, co-director of Math Nation, explained, "Every teacher deserves the best instructional materials at a cost that every school can afford, but decision-makers have always had to choose either high-quality or low-cost. However, at $12.00 per student, including color workbooks and incredible digital resources, this undesirable trade-off no longer exists. We're proud to have made this step to finally fulfill the promise of Open Educational Resources (OER). At Math Nation our focus is on high-quality materials at a lower cost; as a small company we focus on selling outside of traditional channels such as national conferences and mass marketing which can add hundreds of thousands of dollars to a provider's expenses -- and is passed directly onto the customer through higher prices."
The Open Up Resources 6-8 Math curriculum can be downloaded free of charge at openupresources.org. Math Nation augments the curriculum with minor edits/updates, color workbooks, and digital resources (including highly-engaging streaming video). Virtual and in-person Professional Learning is provided districts at half the cost of other providers.
