Teacher Shortages, Online Learning, Homeschools, Supply Chain Issues, Decreased Budgets - We can help!
As Colleges and K-12 institutions struggle to manage the responsibility of educating students while mitigating current stresses in education, GradeStrides, LLC lab manuals and activity books, specializing in math and science investigations using everyday materials, are a fantastic, forward-thinking pedagogical approach.
Many schools have non-science certified teachers and substitutes "covering" science courses. These instructors often don't know how to use sophisticated science software or probeware, or don't feel comfortable with safety procedures of traditional laboratory investigations. As a result, students are left computer clicking their way through lab simulations, video lectures, and worksheets. This is not science. GradeStrides Math and Science Products using Everyday Materials can help provide simple, hands-on learning for students.
Whether your school is online, hybrid, or seated the Course Guide Books and Lab Manuals will ensure students are actually performing hands-on math and science investigations with everyday materials found around their homes, at a general store or a home improvement store.
Students will not just click through simulations on flat computer screens. They will use chemicals and food from the kitchen, items from the garage, and office supplies. Students will not be asked to spend money on unnecessary lab supplies. The items required are usually found within a typical home or inexpensively purchased. Measurements are carried out using kitchen cooking supplies, garage tools or student designed and calibrated measuring devices. GradeStrides products have become exceptionally helpful to teachers, substitutes, community volunteers, and parents.
