Overall Satisfaction with McGraw-Hill Connect

We use McGraw-Hill Connect in our Kindergarten through Second grade classes within the organization. It is being used for daily instruction, group activities, and summative assessments of student's understanding of concepts. Additionally, the McGraw Hill Connect allows the teachers to work along with the students in their workbooks to help foster understanding of the concepts that are being taught to the students.
  • Digital pages for students to view on the board while they are working in their workbooks
  • Can use for multiple grade levels - students are used to the same layout
  • Detailed word problems for real-world math examples
  • Difficult navigation upon sign-in
  • Too many choices per chapter - difficult to know which part to select to walk through assignments with students
  • Allowed students to learn math concepts through multiple grade levels of the same type of curriculum.
  • Students are familiar with the material
  • Teachers have ease of using the same program year after year
McGraw-Hill is the most user-friendly and teacher-friendly for students and teachers. McGraw-Hill provided the online portion of learning that helped teachers provide the resources to students that were needed. Additionally, even though McGraw-Hill is wordy in its descriptions in the workbooks it was the least "wordy" of the other options provided to teachers, such as, Go Math.
McGraw-Hill Connect does a great job of explaining how to teach the basics of math to students at entry-levels. It allows teachers to display on the board what students are seeing in their workbooks. Allows for great learning and example-showing.

It is less appropriate when the teacher has to read all of the problems to the students. The problems are very wordy - which is difficult for younger students because they cannot accomplish it independently.
