Newton's Classroom

Available online through **PASS** at **http://www.louisianapass.org**

Newton's Classroom provides **multimedia, interactive math tutorials** on basic concepts and skills.

**The ****mathematics tutorials**** are valuable for ****all students****,**** ****including those in special education, **

**who need to work on the skills in the topics covered. Younger students will benefit from a **

*teacher’s help, especially in getting started and in reading the instructional pages.*** **

The first five topics are:

**1)**** ****place value, rounding, and estimation**

**2)**** ****addition and subtraction**

**3)**** ****multiplication**

**4) division**

**5) fractions**

Each topic has three levels that increase in complexity. Future topics will include *decimals/percents*, *addition/subtraction of fractions,* and *multiplication/division of fractions*.

**Newton's Classroom includes several parts that engage students in the learning process:**** **

**Diagnostic Test:** Before beginning a lesson, a short

diagnostic test determines at which level lesson the

student should begin.

**Animation, Practice:** After a short animated

orientation to the lesson, students are provided

instruction to learn math concepts and practice

applying these skills.

**Quiz with Instructional Feedback:**

After practicing the skills, a follow-up quiz

determines whether the student learned the

lesson’s concepts and is ready to proceed to the

next level or to a new topic.

**Report:**** **A report gives detailed information

on the student’s performance on the quiz

and offers further options: re-take the lesson,

move to the next level lesson, play a game,

or—once the skills are mastered—go to an

entirely new topic.
