OpenEd.io is the world’s largest K-12 educational resource library and contains over a million assessments, homework assignments, videos, games and lesson plans. Teachers can access content that is aligned to every Common Core Math, Language Arts, Literacy and Next Generation Science standard. It lets users easily find and assign resources from OpenEd’s pre-built lesson plans (lists of videos, assessments and homework) for every grade level and subject — and they can modify these lesson plans or create their own. While the vast majority of resources are free, OpenEd also offers a Premium Subscription of proprietary content from major educational publishers for just $9.95/month.
You might be familiar with OpenEd’s free app Common Core Quest, which is available for Apple, Android and Chrome. It allows students to take quizzes to demonstrate mastery of Common Core Math and English Language Arts skills and earn badges for each category. When students don’t achieve mastery, the app recommends videos and games to learn the precise micro-concepts they are struggling with. The net result is universal personalized learning for each student.

These new exercises include addition equations for building student strategies and number flexibility. The goal is to give students multiple tools for solving addition problems through modeling and varied equations. There are also two new activities on multiplication and equal grouping. These exercises have pictures and virtual manipulatives to help students grasp multiplication concepts.
