Network Servers Powered by Acellus

The server versions of both programs, Algebra'scool and Math'scool, are computer-based learning systems with the same state-of-the-art video instruction of all 99 lessons of Algebra'scool and 74 lessons of Math'scool. The servers are pre-loaded with the program content and connected to a school's server without taking up valuable memory.
The interface of this computer learning system is unique:

  • Video lessons are played in the upper left-hand corner of the computer screen. Students can replay any segment of the video lesson at any time.
  • Problems are posed in the lower right-hand corner for the student to answer in order to assess comprehension.
  • Immediate student feedback is given with wrong answer videos. If a student misses a problem, the video immediately takes the student to the part of the lesson where direct instruction is given on the concept being tested.
  • Missed questions become "sticky questions" and reappear in future lessons to assess student mastery.
  • Students provide answers by either typing in the correct answer or by entering the answer on the calculator-like touchpad (part of the interface design) in the lower left-hand corner of the computer screen.
  • Accompanying lesson texts are provided in the upper right-hand part of the screen. The text is provided for additional instruction and reinforcement of concepts learned. Students can read and re-read the text at their own pace as the lesson progresses.
  • Individual and group assessment data is provided for the teacher of record on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis or whenever a teacher requests it.
  • Emails are sent to the teacher of record when random guessing or lack of mastery is detected.
  • The system provides nightly back up of student data and uploads content and assessment updates on a daily basis.

    • Technology requirements: Purchase of an Acellus server for each program. The content of either Algebra'scool or Math'scool is pre-loaded. The server has one 1000-TRJ 45 Port for network connection. The LAN Port is connected to the school district's network. If the school network is using DHCP, the server is ready for us.
