Kentucky Numeracy Project helping local teachers

Posted: Updated:

Michelle Booth has been involved with the Kentucky Numeracy Project since 2009. The KNP is a program to help students improve on their math skills and retention.

"It will give you actual lesson plans that you can do small group, whole group, you can use math work stations." said Booth.

The Center for Applied Informatics at NKU developed a user friendly version for online use. Going from spreadsheets to state of the art technology where it can be used as an app on a tablet. The Kentucky Center for Mathematics wanted to help make teachers jobs easier and make them feel more supported and successful. Booth said it's the interactive visual activities that allow the children to become problem solvers as opposed to just memorizing.

A teacher can access the lesson plan, the students instructions, the printables, and there is also a classroom video on the app. Activities that can help students improve on specific areas in math where they're struggling can also be found on the app.
