Adaptive Curriculum Launches Digital Age Math & Science Tutoring
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. --(Business Wire)--
Leading education technology company Adaptive Curriculum announced today
the launch of its first consumer product, Uzinggo. Uzinggo is designed
to improve a student's comprehension and test scores in math and science
with customized help at home. Uzinggo is an online-based learning system
that combines leading education techniques, interactive game-like
graphics, real-world simulations and motivational tools to help students
fully understand what they are learning in school.
Much more engaging than a textbook, Uzinggo helps students, striving to
improve in math and science, learn through online lessons that are
designed for digital-age learners. Uzinggo is built on a foundation of
extensively researched educational standards. The 5E Instructional Model
- Engage, Explore, Explain, Elaborate and Evaluate - is built into each
of Uzinggo's study plans, or ZingPaths™. Uzinggo is available for
students in grades 5-12, with ZingPaths™ in courses ranging from
Pre-Algebra to Physics. Prep and review courses are also available in a
variety of subjects.
"For the U.S. to remain a leader in global innovation we have to
acknowledge that many of our students are struggling in math and
science," says Peter Rillero, Ph.D., Science Education, Tenured
Professor of Science Education, Teachers College, Arizona State
University. "The research conducted jointly with ASU and Adaptive
Curriculum illustrates that there are ways to address this: students
need a deeper understanding of math and science, and they need to relate
these subjects to the real world - Uzinggo does this."
When using Uzinggo, students are guided through a ZingPath™ on a chosen
subject course with audio prompts and robust interactive models. After
receiving guided instruction and completing an activity, students are
rewarded with points and badges. Students can earn more points by
completing an assessment and performing well on the questions.
Activities and assessments can be repated as many times as needed until
the student fully comprehends the subject matter.
"Adaptive Curriculum's institutional product is successfully implemented
in schools across the country, where students have been struggling to
achieve average performance levels, let alone excel," said Adaptive
Curriculum CEO Jim Bowler. "The incredible turn-around stories school
administrators and teachers have shared with us inspired us to create a
product parents can use at home with their children to further support
the learning experience, and help all of our children perform well on
Students are motivated to succeed when using Uzinggo in a variety of
ways that cannot be found in a traditional classroom environment.
Earning points enables students to build an avatar, create their own
online room or even enter themselves for a chance to win gift cards by
bidding on prizes. Viewing their score ranking on the leader board and
earning various badges furthers their motivation.
Parental involvement is an integral part of the Uzinggo learning
experience. Parents can log into their account at any time to view their
child's progress through the lessons, how much time the child has spent
on activities, if the child completed assessments and how the child
performed on the assessments. There are also additional assessments and
answer keys available through the parents' portal that they can print
out to use offline with their child to further enhance the learning

Uzinggo - online, interactive Math and Science software - was designed
for middle and high school students to use at home to dramatically
improve their grades in school. Based on the award-winning Adaptive
Curriculum Math and Science curriculum, Uzinggo uses real-world
scenarios and stunning game-like graphics to engage students and make
learning fun. A built-in gaming platform rewards students for their
increased knowledge, and a parental-monitoring function allows parents
and guardians to view their children's progress. Uzinggo's content is
based on proven teaching techniques and research, and the strictest of
state and federal standards to which schools are accountable. For more
