Rate Our Brand New Math Lessons -- Enter to Win a $50 Gift Card!

It’s been four months since Applied Mathematics by Classworks was launched and these K-8, differentiated activities are already generating quite the buzz!
“Applied Math activities help students approach complex concepts with confidence. Plus, the level of mathematical conversation that it stimulated in my classroom was amazing to facilitate!” Mary Dark, Teacher, Chatham Middle School.
Our goal is to provide you with the math resources you need to build rigorous lesson plans. Your feedback is important! Take our Applied Mathematics Survey (we promise it’s brief), and tell us what you think about the new math activities.

Complete the survey by clicking on the "Rate Applied Mathematics" button that will appear when you launch a Classworks math activity.

Once you submit your completed survey, you are entered to win one of twenty-$50 Amazon gift cards! Please note, all survey questions must be completed to qualify for the gift card.
