Pathway to Proficiency

Math Navigator is Gooru’s flagship Navigated Learning experience, combining all of Gooru’s tools to create a robust, data-driven complement to any math curriculum. Learner data are synthesized across sources – including digital learning tools, benchmarks, and diagnostic assessments — to generate an individualized pathway for each learner from their unique starting point to their math destination. 

To support this learning journey, Math Navigator offers highly curated, personalized suggestions and a dynamic data backbone providing real-time, actionable insights. Learners also have access to a complete Common-Core-aligned course with material from grades 2 through 12, including teacher-created content and curated open education resources.

Example Content

Math Navigator contains content from elementary to high school. In this example, elementary students use an interactive area builder.

Benefits:

Math Navigator helps learners develop the foundational knowledge, skills, and thought processes required to be successful in math from Grades 2 to 12, while also preparing them for more advanced mathematics and STEM study.

Math Navigator covers Common Core competencies for 2nd to 12th-grade math, including Algebra, Geometry, and Pre-Calculus. Each competency has a full spectrum of learning activities, resources, and assessments, including digital and offline resources, machine-graded formative assessments, free response questions, worked solutions, and offline rubric-graded projects.

Learners are empowered as they master foundational math knowledge and skills and practice agency in their learning. Math Navigator also enhances the role of the rest of the learning ecosystem, providing real-time data and research-based learning tools to successfully differentiate teaching and coaching.

Math Navigator can be used to identify and fill specific foundational gaps in math and to extend knowledge to ensure that all learners are at or above grade-level.

Instructors have access to real-time data on individual learners and tools to support efficient and effective individualized instruction.

Administrators can track learning in real-time, to personalize interventions and monitor trends of successes and struggles across classrooms, schools, and districts. Learning outcomes can be measured against school, district, and institution goals.

2.8 years of growth in one year As measured by NWEA MAP

The Results: Teaching 8 Years of Math in 4

Students in the Math Navigator program at Leadership Public Schools gain an average of 2.8 math grade levels per year, as measured by the NWEA MAP.

At LPS, teachers had more time for targeted support, assessment, and preparation. Students’ understanding soared, they took meaningful ownership of their learning, and they were on track to move from elementary proficiency to college readiness by graduation.
