Product Review for McGraw-Hill’s Redbird Math | Product Review - The Tech Edvocate

Matthew Lynch, Author at The Tech Edvocate recommends, For over half a century, McGraw-Hill has been the gold standard in PreK-12 and higher education curriculum and instruction in the United States.

I have a unique history with McGraw-Hill, as I can remember being educated as a K-12 and college student with their textbooks and workbooks. Also, as an elementary school teacher, I used their products to educate and remediate my students. And lastly, as a professor of education, I used McGraw-Hill textbooks to train future teachers and education administrators. I can genuinely say that my relationship with McGraw-Hill products has been full circle.

So, when I was asked to review Redbird Mathematics, I accepted the opportunity. This product is a part of McGraw-Hill Education’s Redbird suite of offerings, which provide personalized learning to elementary-level students in a variety of subjects. Keep reading to find out what I think of Redbird Mathematics.

An overview of Redbird Mathematics
Redbird Mathematics provides students in grades K-7 with a personalized mathematics learning path by leveraging adaptive instruction, gamification, and digital project-based learning. This allows the supplemental platform to deliver precisely what each student needs to develop math fluency and aptitude.

Every teacher-assigned unit of Redbird Mathematics ends with an extended STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) problem, and 20 of the 56 units end with a digital STEM project focused on the unit’s topic...

It’s no secret that students regularly struggle with math. However, most education experts feel the issue is more about motivation and engagement than ability and aptitude. Enter Redbird Mathematics. After demoing this product, I was impressed by its nuances and advanced features, which work together to help students in grades K-7 develop math fluency and conceptual understanding. Also, it can motivate students with math anxiety to face their fears and frustrations. As students reflect on their mistakes, they will start to see them as a necessary stop on the road to math fluency.

I wholeheartedly recommend this platform to all classroom teachers, administrators, math coaches, etc., who are striving to increase their student’s math fluency, proficiency, and confidence. You won’t be disappointed. If you adopt Redbird Mathematics no longer will your students avoid math, they will embrace it.
