HERNDON, Va., May 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Personalized learning solutions provider Fuel Education™ today announced it is expanding its comprehensive portfolio of more than 500 unique online and blended courses and titles for pre-K through 12th grade with more than 25 new additions for the 2014-2015 school year.
Fuel Education's catalog now features multiple new math courses for middle and high school students, new electives designed to promote career readiness, as well as the recently announced mobile, standards-aligned FuelEd Middle School curriculum. Each course or title has been developed in full alignment with the Common Core State Standards, as well as other state and national standards.
Fuel Education's new middle and high school math courses for blended and/or full-time learning include:
"Mathematics is so closely tied to overall student success that educators now regard Algebra I as a key predictor of high school success, and Algebra II as key predictor for work, college, and career success even further down the road," said David Pelizzari, Vice President of Curriculum.
"We are happy to offer new paths to mathematics success for middle school and high school students-paced in different ways and scaffolded to support an even wider range of students, from those with the greatest skills to those needing the most reinforcement, review, and support. These fresh offerings are aligned with the new standards and more sophisticated assessments associated with Common Core State Standards and many state standards, offering high quality course choices for every type of student."
Also new for the coming school year is 7 new high school electives designed to engage teenagers and promote exploration of their career interests. New electives include Careers in Criminal Justice, Introduction to Agriscience, Public Speaking, Early Childhood Education, and Entrepreneurship. In addition, many electives previously available for blended programs are now available for full-time programs.
As previously announced, the catalog also features FuelEd Online Courses for Middle School, the standards-aligned curriculum designed for students as they transition through the "make or break" years, available on a wide variety of platforms and devices such as the iPad®, Chromebook™ and Android™.
New courses designed for blended learning are also integrated into PEAK™, Fuel Education's Personalized Learning Platform, which makes it easy for districts to integrate and manage all of their online learning programs in one place. In addition, teachers can easily customize the courses with resources available in the PEAK Library, which includes more than 5,500 supplemental lessons and assessments plus content from third-party partners such as Britannica School®, and open educational resources such as Khan Academy® and YouTube® Education.
