Mountain View, California (EastBayDaily) — Thanks to the new and improved Math Shack, students have a personal trainer to help them bulk up their brains so they’re strong enough to face the SATs and ACTs. Teachers with SAT or ACT Prep licenses from Shmoop, one of the world’s largest digital publishers of test prep materials, online courses, and education guides, can now assign a Math Shack quiz packed with an infinite number of reps and drills to turn their students into varsity mathletes.
Infinite number of quizzes The library of rules boasts over 200 topics and concepts, which comprehensively covers everything that’s included in the SAT and ACT–including Geometry, Algebra, Functions, Numbers & Operations, and Data Analysis. Teachers can schedule a time for individual students to complete personalized quizzes that focus on stubborn problem areas like linear equations, coordinate planes, and negative exponents. Teachers can also assign new quizzes with a mix of hard and warm-up question sets from the same topic without fear of plateauing–all questions are randomly generated, so the odds of getting the same quiz twice is the same as getting struck by lightning.
Math Shack analytics Once students complete their Math Shack quiz, they can easily submit it to their teachers at the click of a button. While quiz takers can’t see the answers until after the due date, teachers get immediate results and can view the areas of improvement needed for students by topic (wrong answers are written in red–they’re old school over at Shmoop). Students also get awarded ‘Shmoints’ based on the number of questions they answered correctly to foster some friendly competition in mathleticism.
