DALLAS, Aug. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Voyager Sopris Learning, provider of a comprehensive suite of evidence-based instruction, assessments, and professional services, announced that Vmath® Third Edition, a targeted math intervention program, is now available for classroom implementation for students in grades 2–8. With the new edition Vmath reflects new math standards and integrates innovative technology components.

Vmath has been completely rebuilt to respond to the rigor of mathematics standards and to build the foundation for more advanced math:

  • New progression of skills designed to move students to grade-level math
  • Increased focus on conceptual development, problem solving, and application
  • Explicit instruction in foundational math to fill in gaps in student learning
  • Emphasis on academic math vocabulary and math writing/speaking
  • Inclusion of procedural and fluency-building activities
  • Scaffolded instruction using a foundational module and pre-skills lessons in each module
  • Project-based activities to connect real-world and career-readiness skills through Adventures

"One of the biggest challenges mathematics educators face is that some students are unmotivated to participate in math because they've seen so little success throughout their school careers," said George Logue, president of Voyager Sopris Learning. "Vmath Third Edition captures the interest of learners by scaffolding instruction to increase success, engaging them with relevant content, and integrating entertaining online learning components."

Vmath now integrates technology components that increase efficiency and engagement of both teachers and students:

  • New interactive eBooks provide all students and teacher materials online and include interactive features:
    • Students: highlight, write and show their work, and submit assignments
    • Teachers: grade homework, provide immediate feedback, and differentiate instruction
  • New online teacher and student centers provide a single location where teachers and students can access and manage all Vmath content
  • New implementation options-100% digital, combination of print and digital, all print

"We intentionally built this for flexibility-it is specifically designed to provide educators with implementation options based on the technology that is available to them. Additionally, it wraps around any core curriculum to reinforce skills-ensuring intervention aligns with the core," said Polly Stansell, senior vice president of development at Voyager Sopris Learning.

This new edition preserves hallmark components of Vmath: intuitive lesson design, integration of the award-winning VmathLive® online math practice and Gizmos® online math simulations, scaffolded instruction, progress-monitoring assessment powered by the Quantile Framework®, and online data management and reporting.
