What is TransMath?

TransMath® Third Edition is a comprehensive math intervention curriculum that targets middle and high school students who lack the foundational skills necessary for entry into algebra and/or who are two or more years below grade level in math. Using a dual-topic approach, TransMath improves math skills by emphasizing fewer topics in greater depth while accelerating students to more advanced math, from number sense to rational numbers, to understanding algebra. Students who struggle with math will find new concept mastery and confidence with TransMath.

    The TransMath Difference

    Districtwide High School Students Gain 23% Overall Growth in Math

    Using TransMath district-wide, high school students in Alamance-Burlington School District (NC), have experienced solid growth in their math scores.

    Using a dual-topic approach, TransMath emphasizes fewer topics in greater depth

    Using TransMath, students accelerate to more advanced math, from number sense to rational numbers to understanding algebra.

    April Brantley, Program Specialist, Middle and Secondary Alamance-Burlington School District, Burlington, NC

    “This last semester, in the fall, we had 23 percent overall growth in our students who were in TransMath Level Three, and that was looking at all six of our traditional high schools.”
