ZEARN IS A NONPROFIT ON A MISSION TO ENSURE ALL KIDS LEARN AND LOVE MATH
Zearn Math is a rigorous K-5 math curriculum that teaches math as big, connected math ideas.
Zearn Math is based on Eureka Math / Engage NY, the most highly-rated and widely-used curriculum available. Zearn Math was recently rated a Tier 1 curricular resource by the Louisiana Department of Education. Zearn Independent Digital Lessons and Small Group Instruction Materials are designed to teach math concepts as connected ideas, building deep understanding.
Zearn Math is a personalized curriculum for every student.
With Zearn Math, students learn new concepts in two ways: through Independent Digital Lessons and Small Group Instruction with their teacher. While working through Independent Digital Lessons, students learn a new concept at their own pace with fluency, guided practice, and independent practice. This learning is balanced by small group instruction with their teacher; teachers teach the same lesson they would have taught to the whole group, but in a small group they are more able to deeply engage with each student and better meet the range of learners in their classroom. By learning in these two formats daily with Zearn Independent Digital Lessons and Zearn Teacher Material, every student receives personalized instruction.
Zearn Math is built so children come to know they are competent learners.
Zearn Math is designed to teach children that making mistakes is a critical part of the learning process and that with effort, they can learn anything. When a student struggles with a concept in a Independent Digital Lesson, they work through personalized remediation paths that provide precise feedback and opportunities to try again. During small group instruction, teachers lead rigorous math discussions around each day’s lesson, and are able to provide supportive feedback to reach and challenge each student. Through this combination of Independent Digital Lessons and Small Group Instruction, students practice and develop their math reasoning, learn multiple strategies to solve a problem, and build their math confidence.
Every decision we make at Zearn supports equity.
Zearn is a nonprofit with a model that ensures Zearn Math is accessible to all. From a technology standpoint, Zearn Math is web-based and available to anyone with an internet connection. From a cost perspective, Zearn has a sustainable model that ensures Zearn Math is for free for teachers and families, while supporting schools and districts with Zearn for Schools products, including School Accounts, Professional Development, and Printed Classroom Materials.
WE’VE ONLY JUST BEGUN.
Today, Zearn Math is used by over 1,500,000 educators and students across the country. It is only the beginning. Our team is obsessively focused on creating the best math learning experience, and we use data science, teacher and student feedback, and product insights to make Zearn Math better each day. Zearn Math is the first curriculum ever published that is not static; we are a dynamic learning experience that improves as we continue to learn from our partners.
We are also seeing promising academic results in classrooms that teach with Zearn Math. For example, in a high-poverty Wisconsin school system, students who learned with Zearn Math- both independent digital lessons and small group instruction - grew 1.27 to 1.55 grade levels on the Spring Measures of Academic Performance assessment (MAP). Here’s Part 1 from that amazing Wisconsin story . We are excited to share as many more stories to support teachers, administrators and students as they implement Zearn Math.
JOIN US. TOGETHER, WE CAN CREATE NUMERACY FOR ALL.
We built Zearn because we believe that every child can learn and love math. We know you do too. And, in our seemingly discrete work, we will transform the world by cultivating a generation of children who are confident learners, who can reason and think critically and who have the underlying capabilities to solve the hardest and most important problems we all face. We describe this transformation as Numeracy for All. Join us. Together, we can create Numeracy for All.
