TERC is funded to continue the work launched by Diploma Plus [teachers and students] to design a blended learning program to support performance-based math education for its students. Building off the content and pedagogy of the EMPower adult numeracy curriculum, TERC will develop and deliver targeted mini-lessons to build conceptual understanding of key math topics for students with math skills significantly below grade level (aligned to 8th grade and below CCSS); a video collection of students explaining their thinking on math problems and annotated student work samples; and recommendations for content-aligned online resources for students and teachers.
