Overall Satisfaction with Renaissance Accelerated Math

We have AM for every classroom grades 3 and up. Virtually no one, however, actually uses it. The thinking behind providing it was to accelerate student growth in math, but it's no good without the lesson cards which were never purchased.


  • It has plenty of practice.
  • The questions are in a language students can understand.
  • They are multiple-choice, so feedback is quick.


  • It's way too labor-intensive for the teacher.
  • If students already know how to do the problem, they haven't gained anything.
  • If students don't know how to do the problem, there is no instruction or support for them.
  • Big waste of money since no one uses it consistently.
  • Big waste of time because of the management.
  • Students show no gains from using it.
The kids like Prodigy, but HATE Accelerated Math. The teacher interface is much easier to use in Prodigy.
All Renaissance products are well-supported.

It really is just like giving the kids busywork, but it's super labor-intensive for the teacher. It is a huge headache to align it to the curriculum.
