Basic Algebra ShapeUp helps students master specific basic algebra skills, while providing teachers with measurable results. Concepts covered include creating formulas; using ratios, proportions, and scale; working with integers, simple and multistep equations, and variables. Students start with an assessment and receive immediate instructional feedback throughout. Stepbystep tutorials, which introduce each level, can be referred to during practice. Problems are broken down into small, easily understood steps. The program is selfpaced and selfmonitored. Students advance as they demonstrate readiness. They may track their own improvement through progresstodate and last session scores. Scores are kept in a record management system that allows teachers to view and print detailed reports. Designed for students in U.S. grades 6 through 9 (age 10 and up), the program can also be used by ESL and adult students interested in improving their algebra skills.
