Common Core Apps

Top apps for tackling the new standards.

With the deadlines for new assess­­ment benchmarks fast approaching, the Common Core has been weighing heavily on the minds of educators across the nation. Fortunately, there are a number of new apps that can help your schools find ways to adapt curriculum to meet the standards and evaluate student progress. From the handy reference app CCL4s (Common Core Look-Fors), which enables educators to search the standards and record and share classroom observations, to Math Duel, a Core-aligned two-player game in which students work to achieve mastery through hands-on learning and customizable problem sets, these multigrade-level apps will ease the transition for students and educators alike as they tackle the Common Core.
